Steering Box Adjustment
The play at the steering wheel was approximately 2-3 inches before the wheels started to move. I backed out the adjustment screw 1-1/2 - 2 turns and checked both the play and the friction turning lock to lock with the wheels off the ground. I haven't driven it yet (alternator being rebuilt), but will check for smooth travel again when I do.
1986 560SEC: 150,000 miles, runs great, but I've got to sell it (too many cars for one man)
1987 560SL: 122,000 miles, used to run poorly, now (thanks to forum), runs great!
1997 GMC Jimmy: Turned out to be a turkey.
1989 T-Bird Super Coupe: 150,000 miles, still runs great. Ford got it right.
