I have to change the box on my 200T as there is too much play in it. I have attempted to adjust it but with no positive result (Still had 2 inches of play at the wheel) Before anyone recommends checking the knuckles on all the rods, new rods fitted in the last 10 days. So My question is.....................I have a scrapped 190E, will the box from that fit and are there any pointers that I should be aware of? I really would welcome advice and tips from anyone who has had a similar problem / project. Thanks all :eek: :eek: :eek:

This shed WILL get me to the GTG if it kills me!!

possibly stating the obvious - but have you checked the rubber coupling?

AFAIK adjustment on the box is kind of the reverse of what you would expect, counter clockwise tightens the steering.

other point to note 25-30mm play at the rim of the steering wheel is still classed as "acceptable" and within tolerances.
