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?
Don't never get rid of nuthin!
