  Thanks Tom. Does anyone know what the adjusting screw on the steering box adjusts? Does it have anything to do with play?

you should look for a MOTORS shop manual ,or LINCOLN SHOP MANUAL for you application, will lead you step by step
well worth the information,
hope this helps., 37Ragtopman

check all your tie-rods and the drag link, to see if worn [ any play ]and see if sector shaft wobbles,
and the king pins for wear

  That screw only adjusts the end play of the "Sector shaft."

If you have play in your steering it can be multiple things: worn tie rods, king pins, worn sector shaft/ and or, worm gear, idler arm, etc., etc. A "Real Can of Worms!"
