Steering box adjuster screw

So I'm still not clear on the effect of tightening the screw on the box: will that reduce free play in the steering arm or increase resistance at the steering wheel?

In practical terms you are smashing the gear roller into the worm gear ..... so both.

Ace Andrew is right.  I just did this - my thread is probably only a week or so old on this.  

 

I tightened the screw a very little bit.  I took some of the on-center play away, and in general made the steering wheel a bit more difficult to turn.  I'm glad I didn't turn the screw much.  I was amazed at how a small turn impacted the feel of the steering.

Thanks for the link to the manual. I'd seen that before with the resistance meter used on the wheel. What is unclear is whether one is removing free play up to a certain level of steering resistance. I don't need any more resistance, but I could use less free play.
