Questions: my gear box has a grease zert, and now shims. Lots of slack in steering wheel, should it have grease or oil in the box?

Questions: Is it possible (or reasonable) to have to use more than one shim pack to get the proper tension on the bearings. Mine didn't have shims when I disassembled, but after replacing the worm gear and bearings, when I tighten up the steering collar it still needs shims to close the gap. Thanks....

It is, your worm gear may be worn and require more.

Questions: Does the shim pack come gaskets or are gaskets not used?

They dont use gaskets on this part. The fill level is below it.
