  1. Use the following procedure to adjust the steering gear central poppet valve:

a. Place the front wheels in the straight ahead position.

b. Remove and save the central poppet valve adjustment screw rubber protective cap (Figure 13).

Figure 13 – Central Poppet Adjustment Screw Rubber Protective CapFigure 13 – Central Poppet Adjustment Screw Rubber Protective Cap

 

Figure 14 – Central Poppet Valve Lock Nut and Adjustment ScrewFigure 14 – Central Poppet Valve Lock Nut and Adjustment Screw

 

c. Loosen the central poppet valve adjustment screw lock nut (Figure 14).

d. While holding the lock nut, tighten the central poppet adjustment screw until it bottoms out in the steering gear (Figure 14). This will bottom the internal central poppet valve.

NOTE: With the central poppet valve bottomed in the steering gear, when the steering is cycled, the central poppet valve self-adjusts to the proper position. In essence, the central poppet valve adjuster screw is only being used as a tool to bottom the central poppet valve.

 

Figure 15 – Adjust and Lock Down the Central Poppet ValveFigure 15 – Adjust and Lock Down the Central Poppet Valve

 

e. While holding the central poppet valve adjustment screw lock nut, back off the central poppet adjustment screw until 18.5 mm of the screw is protruding from the lock nut (Figure 15).

f. Tighten the central poppet valve adjustment screw lock nut to 90 ft. lbs. (120 N·m) (Figure 15).

g. With the front wheels on the alignment rack turn-tables, start the engine and turn the steering wheel to the full right turn position (steering against the right steering stop).

h. Return the front wheels to the straight ahead position and then turn off the engine.

  1. Use the following procedure to adjust the steering gear off-center poppet valve:

a. Loosen the off-center poppet valve adjustment screw until 12 mm of the screw is exposed (Figure 16).

NOTE: When loosening the off-center poppet valve adjustment screw,  at about 1.5 mm, an increase in turning effort will be experienced. This increased drag is the off-center poppet valve adjusting screw being pulled out of the internal valve. The valve will be pushed back to the correct depth on the adjusting screw when the steering is cycled from lock-to-lock.

 

b. Tighten the off-center poppet valve adjustment screw to 48 ft. lbs. (65 N·m) (Figure 16).

Figure 16 – Steering Gear Off-Center Poppet Valve AdjustmentFigure 16 – Steering Gear Off-Center Poppet Valve Adjustment

 

  1. Install the central poppet valve adjustment screw rubber protective  cap  (Figure 13).
  1. With the front wheels on the alignment rack turn-tables, start the engine and cycle the steering wheel lock-to-lock twice and then return to the straight ahead position.

NOTE: This will position the steering gear valves in the steering gear.

 

  1. Remove the alignment equipment from the vehicle.
  1. Check the power steering fluid level and adjust as required.
  1. Road test the vehicle to ensure that the steering wheel is straight and the vehicle steers properly.
  1. Return the vehicle to the customer.
