Come home safe! Check your steering.

Come home safe! Check your steering.

You might want to look at an article from my book, Military Maintenance for the MB/GPW Jeeps 1941-45.  The article Jeep Steering Gear was original from the WW2 Army Motors magazine. It basically suggests. “Before starting your adjustments on the ball thrust bearings on the cam you have to relieve the assembly of all load. Disconnect the steering gear connecting rod from the steering arm, loosen the instrument panel bracket and steering-gear frame bolts to allow the assembly to align itself.”And you really need the manuals, the cheapest way is $20 or less for the manuals on CDrom.

They have the added advantage that you aren’t mucking up your documentation on a single job. Just print and throw away when done.

Anyway if interested click on the link above. Good luck.
