Default 55 Manual steering box purchase?

Hey Guys,

Does anyone know where I can purchase a rebuilt original steering box for my
'55 210 sedan? I called Borgeson's but they only sell the rebuild kit.

I don't want to rebuild my current box, but rather just buy a new rebuilt box and install it so I can continue driving my car. I also don't trust my skills rebuilding my current box. My car is newly restored and the entire front end is new (bushings, steering linkage, etc.) but the steering box was original and not rebuilt and has some "slop" in it.

I don't want to upgrade to power steering or have a box from a different year car or rack and pinion. I'm just looking for who sells a newly rebuilt stock steering box to install ASAP. I don't even need a long steering shaft because I cut my current steering shaft down when I installed my Ididit steering column.

Thanks
Tod55

Default 55 Manual Steering Box

Have you tried taking up the "slop" with the adjustment on top of your current box? The nut is a jam nut and the slotted threaded rod is a bearing adjustment. You loosen the nut then lightly tighten the screw until the play is minimized or disappears. Don't go too tight or you'll introduce drag in the steering. Once adjusted hold the screw in position and tighten up the jam nut.

I've made that adjustment on pretty much every older Chevy I've owned with success. If you can't get rid of the "slop" before it starts binding then you need some sort of rebuild.

Good luck!

Thanks for the response. Yes, I have adjusted the jam nut, but it did not help.
