Question 36 Ford Tudor; steering parts vendor?

Took the 36 into an alignment shop for a check to confirm my thoughts, found a reputable shop not too far away w/an old timer whose also into old iron. He agreed with my assessment; need new or rebuilt steering gear box and all tie rod ends and associated parts. Who are the better vendors for these items? Can you even buy a new gearbox or rebuilt these days?
Michael (35fordtn) can you supply any of these items?

Mike Bartlett at Mike’s Speed Shop can set you up with a rebuilt ‘36 box or a modified ‘37 box to fit your existing ‘36 mount. This is the option I chose for my ‘36 5W and it steers and drives great.

He can be reached at mbarcamotorsports@yahoo.com

Tell him Jay sent you.

Rather than rebuild the '36 box, upgrade to a 37 box and rebuild that one.

A couple of things. Lares manufacturing in Cambridge, MN is able to rebuild just about any steering gear. I will also second the motion for a later replacement box in a '36 Ford. I put a '37 into my old '36 3-window and it was a great improvement.

Ok, thanks Gents, any particular brand of tie rods that are better than others for these old cars?
