vega steering box stiff to rotate
While I had my '29 Model A up in the air and Vega steering box disconnected from everything I noticed an issue.
The steering wheel would obviously rotate very easily BUT there was a point when the box was mid-way beteen locks that it stiffened up. It wasnt massivly stiff but it stopped and required a little pressure to encourage it though the point and it then loosened back up again. It did this in both directions.
I could spin the wheel from one lock and it would rotate 2-3 times till it arrived at this central point and stop, I would encourage it past the stiffness and again it would spin feely till the opposite lock.
The stiffness isnt something I can really detect now it is back on the road but I am not sure if this means I should rebuild/inspect the box or whether it is normal? I am confident the stiffness is experienced at the exact point the box is mid-way between locks.
