Justin039 Welcome to and the Slicks Forum.

The steering wheel is attached on a spline shaft, held on by a nut so it does not spin. The other end is attached to the steering gear and can not spin. If they could spin you couldn't use it to drive.

Can you be a bit more specific, post a photo so we might be of help to you. Is the truck sitting out somewhere?

I think all it probably is - the nut behind the steering wheel is loose.

It been 50 years since I owned anything with that steering box but I would guess that the bearings #3571 on the page ND posted, are toast. There are rebuilt ones out there, if you can stand the price. Steering | Dennis Carpenter Ford Restoration Parts

O crap that was funny. "Nut behind the wheel is loose". I know you most likely didn't mean it that way. But it was still funny.
