its on the inboard side facing the block, behind tne splash guard thatbia mountes to the box itself, 19mm lock nut and slotted adjustment screw. Not the thing to do unless the rest of the slop sources are fixed, notably the centerlink, but the screw was all the way out here, so a lot of adjustment available...
so just loosen the lock nut, turn the screw 'in' a bit at a time with the wheels straight, checking that you dont induce any 'binding". then tighten the jam nut when done, a but gard to get to, but not difficult at all.


Yep! Thanks, went back and looked at your pics and saw it on under the heat shield. Just went out and did it, steering feels great now.
Thanks again!

Keep the spring green `70 and build it as a fun wheeling 40 and keep the '76 original. ;)

Oh no, Tom has passed? That's very sad news. He was a good dude. Covid?
