'59 steering box rebuild questions

The steering box on my '59 F100 will need a rebuild sometime in the near future. Having never rebuilt one before, does anyone have any tips on doing it right the first time? This is a daily driver, so I'd like to have all the parts needed ready to go so that downtime is kept to a minimum. Would you recommend getting a new steering shaft with worm gear on it, or just the worm gear?

Thanks in advance for any advice or tips.

- Jay

'59 steering box rebuild questions

check the post I left, the fellas came through with some advice. My truck is a daily driver as well, but I am just going to have to take out the steering box, call the rebuild shop and order the stuff that looks worn. I will then study my shop manual, and rebuild this baby.

I am learning that the good stuff is never a "one day " job. DARN!

good luck and if you are going nuts trying to figure the damn thing out, I am too. Let me know how it goes, and Ill do the same.
