Default Re: steering box rebuild.

I just my Model A out for a shake down after 2 months in the shop. One of the items on the list was to rebuild the two tooth steering gear. I repaired the threaded end of the steering shaft with the kit from Snyder's-- installed new sector shaft bushings and a very good used original sector shaft. I adjusted the bearing preload and used a dial indicator to set the worm and sector clearance per Les Andrews book. This is a time consuming project but the end result was well worth the effort. I have a shortened steering arm and the Teflon inserts in the tie rod ends and drag link and it is so smooth that I had to look a couple of times to make sure that I was driving the same Model A.
