Allis B steering

Is there a way to tighten up the steering on an 49' B steering box. I think it is a Ross steering box. Linkage from the steering arm forward is nice and tight. The play seems to be from the interaction of the teeth and threads in the box. Both the threads and teeth do not seem worn and no metal shavings etc in the grease. Have almost a 1/4 turn of the wheel each way before engagement of the wheels. There is a slotted screw on the right with hex nut but turning it really does nothing. Looking inside the box, I really cant even see what this does/interacts with. I should have some pics later this evening if nobody has figured it out by then! Thanks!

Well, I figured it out. The old adage of take it apart, study it and learn its function worked. The slotted screw on passenger side takes up the side to side slack of the steering arm. The eccentric cone and screw takes up the slack between the threads by rotating it around. I left the shims on the steering column alone. Must have been the original cosmoline in the box. Cleaned that up and replaced with new grease. Steering works great now, (possibly better than my truck!). Maybe now I can shred the pasture without worry of taking out my neighbors fence! Thanks all!

There is a part, that I have called the follower button, in the gearbox, which is moved through the worm gear, and has been the problem , which I have found. I bought a used gearbox, and it also was badly worn. I took my disassembled gear box, to a machine shop, where they built up the button with braze, and filed it down to smooth, this filled the groves in the worm gear, and removed the slop! Sorry, there is no easy answer.

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
