If there is excessive "play" in the steering wheel, it may be any one of the causes that Andrea and Huib note, but it may also be quite simple.

First, check the level of fluid in the steering box. If the fluid level is correct, you can adjust the play with the nut and concentric set-screw at the top of the steering box. With the steering wheel centered (front wheels pointing straight ahead), loosen the nut with a 19mm wrench and with a large screwdriver turn the set screw clockwise just a few degrees. Check the steering play. If there's still too much, turn another few degrees; if there's none, back off a few degrees (as Huib notes, you do not want 0 play). Once you have it right, hold the set screw position with the screwdriver and tighten the nut.

That won't cure the problem if the steering box gears are excessively worn, or if there's some other problem, like bad rod ends. But it's the first thing to adjust, IMO. If that doesn't work, only then look elsewhere.
