[DaimLan] Steering, Daimler V8 /68


(DstJohn) #1

My steering is rather sloppy, well after 20 odd years and no
work done!. Is it possible that is the way it is? what
would be the most worn parts? Naturally I’m comparing it to
the XJ40, pin-point steering, I know that can’t be achieved,
what what should I look at? Regards to all, David–

Hi David,

Is this manual steering or power steering, and if power steering is it the older unit (Burman I think) or the newer Ad-West unit?

In reply to a message from DstJohn sent Thu 26 Sep 2013:

If it is a manual steering box rather than power, then on the
top of the box, secured by a locknut, is an adjuster screw .
Screwing this down should take out much if not all of the
play. Just make sure that you don’t overdo it and effectively
seize the shaft up solid–
