Just wondering - when you added the sealer between the shims, did you
have to change the number of, or thickness of the, shims? I would think
that the thickness of the sealer might change the axial pre-load on the
bearings. May-be not enough to matter.
I can't get to the disassembled steering box I have at the moment, but I
think that the thread holes for the front cover aren't thru holes. So
the only way the steering fluid can get to the bolts is if there's a
path through the shims/gasket or a crack in the cover.
