I have a question related to Poncho62's. My 109 turns great to the left but maybe 50-70% of that to the right. Is there a common problem/quick fix to this in the adjustment?

Sounds like you need to adjust your steering control links. Turn steering wheel full left, then full right. Count the steering wheel revolutions, then turn steering wheel to center. You should find your wheels are pointed toward left instead of center. Leave steering wheel at center, then adjust your steering link (or links depending on the system) from steering box to spindle till wheels are centered.

There also might be a chunk of teeth missing from the gear on your steering connecter. if there is, you can probably weld new teeth a little oversize, and then grind them down to fit the other teeth.

I am set to try Olcowhand's method any time now as my 109 is up on blocks. Just have to find time.... I would suggest that.

What happens when you try to turn it to the left? Does it skip teeth?

Followed Olcowhand's advice and voila! It appears to be centered, at least on the stands anyway. Will do an off-road trial when time permits.
