I believe the screw you are talking about is on the steering box not on the pump.

Never heard of stearing, but I have heard of stEEring... The screw is on your power steering box, not pump. It's a hex bolt (you'll need hex/allen wrenches) inside of a normal nut. Loosen the nut, then tighten the bolt.

Not very? I took mine in a few turns, but it was very loose. Need to tighten it up a bit again.

Look straight down on the drivers side just beyond your radiator. You'll see the steering column where it runs into a small box. Look underneath if you dont see it. You'll see where the steering connects to the bottom of it. There is an allen bolt head ON TOP of the box with a nut on the outside of it. Loosen the lock nut around it about 3 turns, that way the allen/hex bolt wont bottom out on it. Then tighten the allen bolt until you feel pressure as in it's getting tight. Then back it off 1/8 turn and CAREFULLY tighten up the nut around it. And yes the allen bolt WILL move so you really have to pay attention and dont just start tightening like mad or it will tighten down on you and you dont wont that. That should fix you up.

" From a friend named TailGunner on another site that showed me how to do this".....or however you give an author credit............i never was an english major, hahahaha

Yea, go messing with steering PUMP bolts?.....you'll be back with a WHOLE diff set of questions!

keep in mind that this is a temporary fix . All you are really doing is putting off changing the ps gearbox . After so much adjustment the gears inside will start to eat themselves and you are also losing some turning radius in the process . This will work as a temporary fix , but , you are heading for a gear box in the near future .
