Steering Box Rebuild

I developed the dreaded 'leaky box syndrome' last week, so that meant it was time for an overhaul!
After looking for a little bit i found WD40's thread on his seal replacement, and figured id take it one step further.
So......i snapped a bunch of pics during the overhaul, and ended up with this:

Hey, if i can rebuild this thing, (and have it work properly) then im sure anyone can. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Steering Box Rebuild

Great info and great job! I would like to put a saginaw in my 96 one of these days, too. Do you know what year of the E-series Ford van has the saginaw with serpentine pully that can be used on a 96 Bronco? Thanks.

Re: Steering Box Rebuild

Very good writeup Rep't! Bet you feel good tackling that one. Had a chance to drive it? Any updates...steering wheel is straight...no leaks?

John, if you are just looking for the Saginaw pump, Burned can save you the trouble and ship you a pump, with everthing you need for a quick swap. Just PM him and ask for price.

Re: Steering Box Rebuild

yep, i do sell the sag pumps already to go swap in.
PM me and i can tell you how much it would cost you, or what stuff you need/tools to remove it if you want to go pull one yourself.
Send your Zip code so i can figure shipping.

Re: Steering Box Rebuild

Yeah man, there was certainly more parts than i expected to see, but it really wasnt that hard to do at all.

I drove it around today. Nowhere far, just around town a couple times throughout the day. So far everything about it is better. There is less slop in the wheel (which is also straight again for the first time in about a year now [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]), it re-centers alot better, and of course....no leaks!
