STEERING GEAR REPAIR - CONTINUED
ASSEMBLY - CONTINUED
Apply a light coat of lubricating oil to bearing surface of sector shaft (3). Install sector shaft in side cover (9) by thread-
ing adjusting screw (11) counterclockwise until solid, then backing off 1/2 turn so that side cover rotates freely.
Install vent plug (14) and nut (7) hand tight.
Rack piston and sector shaft must be meshed correctly. Failure to do so will severely limit gear travel in one
direction, resulting in possible injury to personnel.
Rotate input shaft (2) so that valley between second and third tooth of rack piston (22) is even with and centered in
opening of housing (4).
