Question Power steering box leak!

Finally found my steering box leak. It's comming out of the adjustment screw on top of the box in the center. Do I try to tighten it? Does it have a rubber washer? The nut and screw are pretty rusty looking.

That screw and nut adjust the slack in the box. If you remove it, make sure it goes back the same way...count the turns on the screw or something. If its not adjusted properly it will bind.
