Power steering rack play adjustment

Hey everyone, couldn't find any mention of this in search so sorry if I repeat. I have a 2004 ram 1500 4x4. I just replaced the entire front suspension including the P.S rack. I have some play in the wheel and read i can adjust that on the rack with the inward hex
nut that's there. Anyone know what tool to use or what size nut/allen key to use? Seems like a 25 or 26 mm, but can't find anything that size. Any ideas?

Pre-load adjustment is what I have been seeing. Rack is new, tie rods, control arms, sway bar links, everything is new so hopefully this is the fix. Unless the new rack is bad.......

Don’t mess with it you will get all kinds of failure to return to center off turns. Check the flex joints on the bottom of the column and the joint right at the rack for play first.
