Thanks - I'll check the drag link and other linkage ...

It also seems the 'play' looser on the driver side - the passenger side 
wheel moves nicely with steering linkage ?

Let me go check that ...


Looks like the box itself is the culprit ?  Moving the steering wheel about 
30 degrees causes little if any movement of the linkage.

Checking the box adjustment in the AM, but the oil leak seems to be a 
potential problem ?

Thanks again
