Part number 8 (gasket) is has to be a certain thickness or it will cause problems. Part number 15 (gear) can be rotated to get to a unused portion of the gear. If things still can't be tightened up, you may need new bushings, part numbers 21 and 16.

With everything connected and the tractor rolling, are we talking 1/4" turn on the steering wheel before the tractor turns or more? Does the pitman arm (23) move up and down when you turn the wheel? How much movement does it take before the pitman moves left or right? Have you eliminated the tie rod ball sockets from causing the play in the steering?
The gasket (8) you have may be too thin. If you tighten the retainer (7) down good and the steering shaft won't turn, the worm gear may be binding internally between the seal retainer (7) and the case (9).
Any horizontal movement on the shaft (13) can be fixed by parts 16 and 12. Vertical movement can be fixed by parts 16 and 21.
You can look at the gear (15) and see the wear on half of it, and rotate it to the unused side to tighten things up a bit.
Of course if the worm gear and steering gear are worn out, bushings and gaskets won't fix the problem.
