my wheel is not centered but its that way because i have had it off and just stuck it basck on.
24 3/4" is that the center to center or just the long side? I need to be at around 26 5/8" to be in the center of my steering box and have the wheels straight ahead and the absolute shortest I can achieve is about 27 1/4" also did you use calipers or guess at the 3/4"? mine is .6875 or 11/16" (thread) I located center on my box with the link removed total turns are almost exactly 4 1/4 lock to lock, then I turned it back 2 1/8 turns and put masking tape on top center then measured center to center of holes for link in pitman to hole in right steering knuckle and it's about 26.625" Center to center. I now have 2 good long sides as I bought a complete unit and the original long side was OK so if I can find a 11/16" left hand die I'm going to shorten the used one 1" and run the threads back by the same amount just for kicks. Just detailing where I've been to see if I'm missing some thing. I realize I can just pull the wheel and make it look correct but that would not achieve as stable handling down the road. as I would not be in the dead center of the worm gear and the sector gear as it was designed to be.
