It is unlikely that the gears are worn much but the worm gear can get loose on the shaft and the bearing endplay can get to be too much. The spacer tube between the gear and bearing can get peened on the ends and the pin that holds the gear to the shaft can get worn. You can make a new pin from a piece of 3/8 rod. The hole in the shaft can also get worn. You can turn the shaft end for end and drill new holes for the u-joint and the gear, use washers to get the end play out and it will be nearly like new.

If the source of your freeplay is how tightly the worm gear is meshed to the sector gear there is no adjustment. Thick grease or sawdust would be the only bandaid. Sorry to tell you bad news. Later, Mike
