[Healeys] Steering Wheel or Steering Box Problem?

I have reset the steering wheel on my BT7 several times - spoke straight up with the front wheels straight ahead.

But periodically the steering wheel rotates counter clockwise about 30 degrees.

The front suspension is new- king pins, poly bushings.
The car steers very well, no shimmy, very little play in the steering.

The box has never been rebuilt.

Is it possible the worm has a dead spot or the peg is damaged?

Any ideas are welcomed.
