Post #20 in this thread describes the proper way to adjust the steering
gear box sector shaft screw. Using any other method is guess work.

If you choose to adjust it by trial and error, you loosen the lock nut and with a
flat blade screwdriver turn the screw clockwise to take up any slack. Don't
turn the screw more than 1/8 of a turn at a time. Take it for a test drive and
adjust again if needed. Warning if you tighten the screw to much, you can
lock up the steering box.
