Myfirst66car: wheel bearing never crossed my mine.
GT289: so to tight up the play at the steering box, I should screw down/in the steering screw. First loosen bolt holding screw in place than tight screw 1/4 turn?
NEVER mess with the steering box while it's in the car. Any adjustments to that screw need to be done on a workbench with the box connected to nothing. You can leave the arm on the box. Much easier to disconnect it from the linkage than it is from the box, and you'll need it on there to center it before re-installing... at least, that's how I did mine.
