Hi Patrick, is this the grease fitting you are talking about? I found it only after reading the steering box manual. It still had a plastic cap on it, so I don’t know if it had been greased before or not. I have had it serviced twice at Spartan, so hopefully they know about it.

Does a 1990 40 WB have that grease fitting?

BMC’s have a TAS steering box, at least my 95 does, made by TRW. Not sure what the WB’s have. The way I understand it the purpose of this grease fitting is to create a grease seal or barrier to keep dirt and moisture out from around the shaft.

Patrick, if the mood strikes you I for one would be interested in seeing where / how you are making the gear adjustments. @ 150000 I have a bit of movement in my steering wheel, all inspections point to the sector gear. I am considering installing a SafTSteer to band- aid, but also think if adjustable that might be a good thing to do too.

Also, every once in a while on a hard turn, I feel a hard spot, but again all inspections indicate no interference. I am wondering if I may have a little air in the system too. Do you recall the procedure to bleed? I also wonder if it might be time to change the hydraulic fluid? Id assume this would be quite a task with the engine fan motor involved, can you comment when you have time please.

Jim
