thanks, Ill inspect the frame mount bolt holes. Did you replace the Sector shaft? or was that good enough to use? I could start with the shaft bushings, clean up the shaft, check spec...
: I read and saw first hand that the steering
: unit tends to "wobble out" the
: retaining bolt holes.
: I rebuilt mine, still had the issue and
: found out that the holes in the frame had
: elongated badly.
: I was able to repair the holes and it was
: like new steering. It did not look like it
: was lose. Only when the wheel was at certain
: angles did the whole unit shift.
: Just a suggestion

: Hello all,
: Mark from Wisconsin here,
: My 57 170 Ross Steering box is loose and
: tight depending on where the wheels are, a
: good sign that the bushings and/or the
: sector shaft is worn. Is the below listed
: sector shaft from Kaiser Willys a fit? If
: not, what will replace the entire sector
: shaft component, bushings and sector shaft
: seal? Ill replace the roller balls and
: cups, check shims, replace side seal, etc
: etc. Need the sector shaft info and any
: hints please. Everything else is rebuilt or
: replaced in the entire steering and
: suspension system. Last piece! thanks for
: the great advice all!
