Ford Steering Box


1989 Ford steering box. Is the steering coupler keyed to go on one way. I noticed when took steering box out Lincoln steering coupler had flat on bottom and splined rest way around. I know pitman arm goes one way but also can go 12 - 3 - 6 - 9 o-clock position. Put new pitman arm and steering box in and steering wheel off little.

Not sure what you mean off a little.

Other than adjusting the tie rod ends to get the wheel straight.

Denny the steering wheel is off center now my quess was pitman arm was not machined same. As for steering coupler it looks D shape with flat on bottom. With that said it can only go on one way on steering box. Take to shop get tie rods adjusted get steering wheel centered.

Yeah mines a Chevy so not sure if its the same.but all I did with mine is I put the tires str8.
And then I popped the steering shaft at the box.when I got the wheel where I wanted it I put it back on.
The splines on my box where not indexed.
