Steering loose spot is off-center
The loose spot in the steering is typically dead center, but in my Caprice, it's off to the right slightly, like around 1230-100. It's got an SS box that was rebuilt by Lee's Manufacturing, installed by me. It's been like this ever since I installed the rebuilt box, which was years ago. I had the front end aligned after the box was installed.
I noticed a bit of wear on the inside edge of the right front tire, so the car is going in for another alignment tomorrow and I figured I'd see if there was something I could do to make the loose spot on-center. I assumed that maybe the input shaft or pittman arm were off by one tooth, but they are both keyed so they can only install one way.
What else can I do? Can I move the steering wheel one tooth to the right, perhaps? Could the location of the loose spot be fixed by the alignment?
