    Shims are at the top of the steering box -above the fill plug
    Any gaskets or sealer will add thickness to the shim pack

    Oh, when I disasembled it, it was at the bottom. Previous guy must have done it wrong way around.

    Piet. I checked the repair manual for the Series and it appears that the shims do fit at the bottom of the steering box. Seems that you have to put thread sealer on the bolts though

    Thank you for that one.
    Yip, I did put sealant on the thread of the studs.

    Assembled it, filled with oil and it has been standing upright since yesterday afternoon. So far not a drop of oil leaked.

    That's how the Landy Gremlins work. It only starts leaking AFTER your spent 10 hours putting it and the steering relay back.........
