Default Steering Box Adjustment

If memory serves; most steering boxes (or gear as the Yanks call them) have an eternal adjuster to take up backlash and wear in the internal components. However there's nothing about this in the 'Chilton' workshop manual, and a quick peek under the front has not revealed anything. Any recommendations, chums?

Thanks.

There is an Allen head screw and a lock nut on top of the steering box.

Thanks. I was hoping that would be the case, but it's difficult for me to work my way under there. I'll give it a go when we get a bit less rain.
