You are referring to the big nut with a lock-washer that holds the pitman arm to the shaft? If so, sehr-gutentight is a good value to start with. What makes you think it's not tight enough? Lock-washer not compressing fully? Not enough thread showing after you tighten the nut? Hard to get enough to...

Paul,

One quick question... How far do you need to tighten the pitman arm bolt up on the shaft? Do you (or anybody) have a pic to show how far it needs to go. I have it as tight as I can get it with a regular wrench, but am concerned that it is not tight enough. Thanks for any help.

Well, I STILL haven't started my PS conversion. I did get my Disc brake swap done.

It now actually stops when I want it to. That i...
