The box is easy to adjust. Mine was over adjusted at the factory. I would assume you have a 6.0. 7.3s are similar I took the air filter out so I could see the top of the box there is a adjuster that has a allen hole in the center of a bolt with a lock nut around it. I loosened the nut, then with the steering unlocked, pointing straight ahead and engine off I loosened the bolt while having a friend turn the steering wheel side to side. I kept turning until I increased the free play in the wheel. Then I started tightening until the free play was gone, do not over tighten, and tightened the lock nut. I then put it back together and it drove like it should have when I bought it. I do not think the problem will be in your pump as it is just that, a pump. It supplies the needed pressure to assist the steering box. The belt noise is possibly just a worn belt or misaligned pulley. Let me know if this helps.
