Steering box play

My manual steering box in my 73 Dart has a lot of play
today I dropped the center link and when I grab the pitman arm I can feel a got amount of left/right play.
I tried to adjust the box, but no matter how much I turn the adjusting screw I cannot detect an improvement.
If I want to replace the box do I have to remove the steering column to get the box out?
Also the idler arm is quite loose where it goes into the K member. Are there shims or spacers to make this tight?
many thanks
