Barry,
The pitman arm was not as tight as I like it, but tightened it up as much as I could and made no difference. I tighten the jam nut as per instructions, it started to get jerky so backed off, still no difference in the play, about one to two inches of play at the steering wheel.
I have decided it is what it is, will drive it with the slop.

Is there anyway to tighten up the play in the steering box without tanking it apart once the adjustment screw bottoms out?
Thanks
Richard

I got it, made a new diaphragm for the booster valve and control assembly, pulled a vacuum on the booster cylinder, it was good. Started it up still vacuum leak, started at the engine and worked my way back and found out the original 1934 vacuum hoses were leaking. Replaced all hoses, started it
up, no leaks, drove it around the block and what a difference it makes, will stop on a dime and leave change.
Thanks to Dave and Barry for all the information.

Richard

Dave,
How does the Vacuum Control Assembly work? Does it regulate the amount of vacuum, is it adjustable? I assume the selector switch inside controls something.

Dave,
This thing was completely froze up, the previous owner had the vacuum plugged. I pulled a vacuum on the vacuum cylinder and it moved, so I assume it is good. Going to make a new diaphragm out of rubber. I have been driving with no boost, it stopped but you had to push real hard on the petal. Attached is a photo of the diaphragm I am going to copy. Thanks for your help.

Richard

Can not find a breakdown on my vacuum valve. I assumed it had a rubber diaphragm but when I took if apart it looks like a piston or disc operated.
I would think the piston would come out but it is frozen, got it soaking overnight and will try tomorrow to got it out. I also donít quite understand the gasket or seal also. Would love to see a breakdown if anyone has one.
Dave hope you can help, I am sure you took yours apart on your 34......
