The Red Truck's steering has gotten a little sloppy in the center over the years. Seems like I remember a post long ago that mentioned an adjustment on the steering box to take up some of this slack.

Did I dream this? Does it exist? If so, how do I make the adjustments?

Yet, all steering boxes have a stud that bears against and supports the sector shaft. Normal adjustment is to turn it down until it contacts the sector shaft and bottoms out, then back it off an 1/8 turn then cinch down the nut.
