Steering box video. Advise on play.

Recommended Posts

Please see videos attached. Hopefully these videos will play.  Notice play in worm gear at the tree positions, full lock both ways and TDC.  Also notice force needed to turn steering.  The new center link joints are very tight. The steering box moves easily when center link is disconnected.

 

Just want to make sure this is normal before completing assembly and installin in car.

 

Thanks for everyones help!

Actually its greater turning left than right.  Also, as i am working the steering back and forth and the worm gear with its play, i noticed small amounts of fluid leaking from worm gear seal.  see picture. Hopefully when connected to the steering column the side to side play goes away along with the leak.

 

I think i need to rebuild the box again unless all this is normal.

that seal shouldn't leak under ordinary loads....but working the worm gear shaft back n forth...who knows. I'm going with Penrite Steering box lube to eliminate this as problem altogether once I get my worm gear...on back order.....from Germany. Taking a looong time
