Stephen, I have the same issue in my 1959 BN4.  I thought I was told I could tighten the set screw on the top of the steering gearbox.

I wonder if someone can point me to a good description of adjusting the end play or "end float" in the steering box.
I don't find the manual's - "add or subtract shims as necessary to obtain the correct adjustment" very helpful.
I had thought I had pretty minimal end play when I had the box on the bench (a few years back now), but on the road I find I need to take some of the play out.
So- do more shims ad or decrease the end play? It's not immediately obvious to me. Also, I wonder if it's better to keep the arm attached while doing this to actually see if there is play under load.

I'm sorry if this seems like a dumb question - I had no trouble getting the shims right on the wheel bearings, but this one's got me a bit confused.
