Default Re: F1 steering in a Model A

Well, I cut the flange off the F1 box, made up a new Model A flange out of 3/8" plate and welded it to the box. First, I bolted the flange into the frame and then got the box all lined up with a borrowed roadster cowl and tack welded it. The F1 box sticks through the frame box a bit but I wound up keeping the seal and the sector shaft is supported along it's full length.

Now, what's the recommended lube for a roller sector box? I got a gasket set and I'm gonna swap gaskets to get a nice preload on the tapered rollers. Sector position will be set for minimum slop at the center of rotation which will be straight ahead. Sound right?
