Default Re: steering box rebuild.

When I rebuilt my 2-tooth gear,I found that the old worm & sector were in good condition.I had the sector hsg machined to fit needle brgs as well as boring the outer end of hsg to fit a modern oil seal.The inner end of hsg was cut back .140" to provide clearance for a Torrington needle thrust brg to replace the brass washer.I used the lower plate with the tube to prevent oil leaks into light switch.I also used the short P -arm along with Teflon ball seats & new steering balls.It has not leaked any oil in over 14,000 miles.To me,it steers just as easy as an F -100 unit & looks original.I have mentioned this several times in the past,but it seems that no one bothers to check for previous posts on the same subject
