Thumbs up 1965 Econoline Truck needs HELP!!!

Hello everyony, I just recently destroyed my steering box in my '65 Econoline truck. It can't be rebuilt by my local garage so its up to me to find a replacement. I need the whole steering box in good working order. If anyone can help me out that would be awesome. I also live in Canada and its hard to find parts for this truck around here, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey John, welcome aboard.

I can't personally help you out with the Econo steering box, but might I suggest an outfit called Sacramento Vintage Truck(or Ford, can't remember), they carry truck and Econo stuff.

Does the steering box off a truck interchange with the Eccno box? I know they have a u-joint steering colum but I don't know what the box in like.

thaks for the replys, I'll check the Sacramento place and see, as for the steering box I have no idea if one of a normal Ford truck(?) would work, I'm mechanically challenged! It would be nice and easy for me if an easy swap was possible.

66gpw has a good reputation on FTE.66gpw has a good reputation on FTE.
The steering boxes only are from the Econoline vans and trucks. The one off a half ton will not fit.
I seen some magazine where some supplier made a power steering one, but that was long a go.
I have 3 econo trucks and 2 vans here. Two trucks are going to be projects and the rest are donors.
I'm out here in Sask. Near Saskatoon. I maybe able to help[ with a box. It is still on a truck that is to be tore down. But I need to move it to it final resting place before I take it off.
Another things is a site that you can advertise for free is (The 60's and 70's ford and mercury board) Type fordmercury and you will probally find this site or fordmuscle@webtv.net This may help if someone closer to you in Ont.
Let me know what you decide.
