    I am going to install a Randy Gross steering conversion in my 31 Tudor as soon as it arrives. I know his instructions will be complete and understandable. If anyone has done this is there any special tricks or tips you can add. Thanks

    I've installed one and had problems finding center on lock to lock. I gave up and called Randy. He set me straight. No pun intended. The only "tip" I can give is have his number handy just in case.

      In my opinion rebuild a 2 tooth original steering box with a shorten pitman arm and a good front end and you will have no problems with your steering. also make sure your tire pressures are correctly.

        2 Tooth Steering Box
        by Bill CNC
        Well after screwing around with my steering box on my 31 Tudor, I have found it's to far gone to adjust. It feels like it's indexing in the center and if I loosen it up to rid the hard spot in the center, ... Whoa, ... she's ALL OVER THE ROAD!

        I'm trying to figure out if I want to rebuild it myself or buy a rebuilt one or buy one of Randy's F-100 boxes.

        I'm trying to keep...

        What is fairly "normal" play for a driver, with a 2 tooth steering, measured at the steering wheel?

        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,...

        Need steering help / ideas
        by BigWes
        Hello all, I am very new to the Model T scene. I have a newly acquired 1927 model T (at least that's what the title says.) It appears to be a fabricated kit of sorts but the issue I have is the steering/ front end. while the bucket as a whole is not period correct it appears that the front axle is. The previous owner(s) installed a rack of sorts and all the welds look like crap. I would like to clean...

        1947 ford pickup steering
        by dronen5
        Have play in steering while driving, everything seems to be tight as far as kingpin and tie rod. The top of steering box does not have a screw in nut to adjust. How do you tighten steering box?
