Yes the box is adjustable. Make sure everything on the front end is up to par first. The coupler may seem to be fine, but the slightest bit of play will show up in the wheel.

well another weekend lost to working on van but its better i think vacuume problems solved running smoother but the new pcv valve rattles a bit too much as far as steering box i looked but did not touch it appers that the backlash needs adjustment when the wheel is turned till it just starts catching i can see input shaft raise up about a 32nd if u know when i could get a print whith some specs i would really be grateful
i v read some of ur [post sounds like u know what going on

thanks for ur input

Hmmmmmm. The steering box itself could be the problem. I'll see if I can find any specs. for you.

The input shaft should move up and down slighty as described. It operates the "spool valve" inside the steering box, which channels fluid to the left or right side boost depending on the direction the wheel is turned.
If a recall correctly the adjustment procedure is: Loosen locknut a turn or two, start engine and tighten adjuster to take-up slack when (wheels straight ahead) turning the input shaft at the coupler, then tighten the adjuster 2 more turns and tighten the lock-nut.
If it's still sloppy the internals of the box are worn.

If you pull the box you might as well do the input shaft seal and the pitman arm shaft seal.

OK, I guess i was wrong on the preload. I must have been thinking about transmission band adjustment. I believe Chump is correct so follow his post.

B-300..I was a bit surprised to see this adj sequence pop up but from what I see the vans used a Chrysler box from 88-92 instead of a Saginaw box?
