<VV> Corvair steering box lash adjust screw can't be removed ?

Does the head of the adjustment screw prevent turning it all the way out ?

I plan to turn the locknut CCW all the way to break it free (it's not very 
tight, but turns with the screw)

I am concerned that the head of the screw will damage the inside surface of 
the box ?

Not likely but I figure someone has had one apart would know for sure before 
I damage it worse that it may already be ?

The box MAY be fine, but I need to adjust it to find out, and avoid removing 
it for a complete inspection or overhaul, if that's not necessary ?

The front end does not appear to have incurred any body damage (to answer 
someone's question)


Thanks again for the minute details !
