I have a lot of play in the steering. I know that some of the play is coming from worn parts such as ball joints. I adjusted the lash in the gear box and that has made a huge difference. My questions is, how do I know when I have properly adjusted the lash? In other words, how far do I turn the adjusting screw? What will happen if I over adjust (tighten) the screw? I sure wish I would have adjusted this thing when I purchased the car 2-1/2 years ago.
