New TightSteer Sector Shaft Tensioner

Free play reducer for Ross Steering Boxes.

The TightSteer is an aftermarket devise that is designed to reduce freeplay in steering systems that is common in Willys.

The TightSteer is a spring-loaded mechanism that replaces the sector shafts' set screw and provides constant pressure thru the entire rotation of the worm gear. It reduces free play and the dreaded 'Willys Wobble".

For 7/16" sectors shafts found on all these vehicles

No drilling or modifiction is required. It is a bolt on system.
