Bump for myself Tried adjusting the box but for some crazy reason the adjusting screw and lock nut are pretty well seized together. Not sure how that happened; I was able to adjust it before I sent the box in, but maybe I bent something when I tried to get the pitman arm off and was going to town with the hammer. Today I was able to loosen the lock nut (which took the screw with it) but couldn't separate the two. After cranking and banging on that thing for a while with various tools, I think I'm back on the hunt for a gently used box again.

So, if anyone is parting an 80 and has a decent condition steering box, I'm interested
