covair steering box

Got a rebuilt covair steering box at a swap meet and the guy said he rebuilt it but it seems like there is a lot of play in it. I adjusted it out on the side as much as I could and checked all the gears and nothing is sharp but it still is loose, counted the ball bearings in the worm and there was 44. I was wondering maybe there are some missing and would this cause the excessive play?
