Steering box

Post by Vangoat on Sun Jun 04, 2017 4:01 pm

Does anyone know where I can purchase a rebuild kit for my steering box, seals and worm gear adjuster. My adjustment seems to be maxed out, think a new one might tighten it up more. 61 econoline. Thanks !

If I remember correctly, I bought the roller bearings and seals for a Falcon from C & G. I bought the bronze bushings from my local hardware store. I packed it with Green Grease.

What killed mine was someone had serviced it with gear oil and it ate the bushings out of it.

You'll need a blind bushing puller to get the bushings out.

I never found an econoline specific rebuild kit.

When My adjustment maxed out, it was the lower worm bearing that had broken was the problem
