I think you adjusted it wrong!

Ron in SC is correct - you must turn the allen screw COUNTERCLOCKWISE to tighten the steering on that particular steering gear. The allen screw pulls the shaft upwards to eliminate the free play. I imagine you made the free play worse if you "tightened" the allen screw.
