Sounds like you have a failed part. Best to start with the simple things. Have a friend turn the wheel left and right while you look underneath. Look for the loose part/s. Then replace the faulty part and check again.

Could also be the rag joint on the steering shaft.

Okay so I think I've narrowed it down to the steering box. I can move the shaft and everything seems to move just fine all the way down to the box. Magen I move the shaft the pitman arm does move at all for like 1/2 a turn.
