  • 7 tooth steering box

    Why do they insist on pouring in 600W oil in a 7 tooth steering box when there is no seal on the sector shaft? I'm going to try turning a sleeve to fit between the arm and housing to hold an oring at the end of the housing. Anybody have a better idea? How about a lip seal in a sleeve the vendors sell. Does anybody make something for this?

      Thanks Bob. I didn't think to look at Bratton's.

        I used the O-ring from Bratton's years ago on a customer's car and it worked fine.
        Just remove the box from the frame and lip it and the thin washer in place, then bolt the box to the frame.

          Steering Box Seal to Frame addition

          Has anyone used this seal with sector bushings (rather than needle bearings) and without recessing the housing end the full recommended 3/32" ?...

          Leaky early Gemmer two tooth
          by Bill G
          My car is a February '29 Tudor with a Gemmer two tooth steering gear. I believe this is an early version of the two tooth. The free play is not too bad and so I really don't have any plans for a rebuild, plus I have read that the races and bearings are different than the parts currently available that are made for the later models. (Correct me if I am wrong). The question is if there is a relatively...

          Steering box
          by carolinamudwalker
          Has anyone tried using Penrite 1200w in your steering box? Part Number LUB009. I have a slow leak and do not have time to pull it for new gaskets/seals.

          Leaky 1930 Two Tooth Box to Clean
          by Leo
          The box was rebuilt with the shafed end plate and it still leaks the 600 W oil. I've read the posts and there are other places which may be the culprits. At this point I may just opt for some of the steering box lube that will not leak out and cause this problem, but first I've got a steering box, wire bulb and harness head wet with grease. Is there an easy way to clean up this mess without having...

          early/late steering gear swap
          by thom
          Our "new" '28 Coupe of course has the seven tooth steering box, and although the steering doesn't feel unsafe, it doesn't feel quite like I want it to. I am going to learn how to do all the adjustments that can be done to what we have and see how it does. If we're not satisfied I would be interested in swapping in a two tooth Gemmer box and column. Can someone tell me if that is a direct,...
