I sent a missive about this issue a week ago but it didn't show up on the
list. Maybe I hit the wrong button.
What is all this talk about adjusting rods and things to change the tight spot
in the steering box?  The tight spot is always in the center of the steering
box. If your steering wheel is not centered when you are in the tight spot, it
is because your steering wheel is not centered - not the box!  You fix this by
lifting your steering wheel off the splined shaft (when the wheels are
pointing straight ahead - in that "tight spot") and rotating it into a
position such that it is now "centered" - now slide it back down onto the
spines and button things back up.
