Installing Pitman Arm

Hey guys-

I just got myself a new PSC power steering box for my 76 CJ5. I am about to put the pitman arm on it.. and I can figure out how it is installed.. but is there a certain way to clock the arm to the gear box? Should I just install it so that it is straight forward and back?

There were no instructions with the PSC box.. any tips?

I think you need to center the gear by turning the steering wheel side to side while counting the turns, then back it off half way and as you figure, put it on straight back.

Once you have the steering box centered the pitman arm goes on with the drag link end straight back. It is keyed so there is only one position where it will fit.
