Got the C20b running perfect,now I'm tackling the non-power steering [url removed] last guy who ran this lift said it just stopped turning to the left one day and thats why they parked it over a year [url removed] you turned the wheel to the left it didnt engage and just started to "un-thread"out of the steering [url removed] removed the box and opened it [url removed] dry inside and the bottom bearing and race were completely [url removed] new bottom plug (bottom race is machined into it)and bottom bearing($36 and $17,not bad)
Anyway,when I put it all back together and get it back in the truck whats the best way to find center so i have same number of turns lock to lock?Could eyeball it but pulling the pitman arm on and off every time I have to correct would be [url removed] trick to this?

Just count how may turns the steering wheel goes, lock to lock. Probably 5 1/2. Then center it at 2 3/4 turns. Make sure the steer tires are straight and put the pitman arm on.

Thank you your advice was [url removed] some reason I thought it was more complicated then [url removed] that I can steer it (C20B) I'm wondering how much it weighs so I can rent the right capacity trailer to get it up to Providence.
Thanks again,
