Excessive wear in the stearing box , is there any adjustment to reduce slack in steering ?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

1640

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes but I can't find any adjustment and to remove the housing involves disturbing the hydraulic o-rings !

How do you get access to the steering box? The only way appears to be by removing the housing with the steering column although the shaft with the pitman arm exits through the gearbox housing !.
