Does anyone know where I can get a steering box rebuilt. I can get a used one but no one seems to have rebuilts. Tried a few on-line stores and Napa and the answer is the same - can't get it for a 60. Any suggestions??

They do sell them rebuilt as Exchange only.. but they are a little pricy at $450.00 for your truck the part number would be # 7177. Goto their website at www.vintageford.com for contact info. Someone out there may be able to find it cheaper for ya.. But they have it.
49 Ford F-1 on 73 Ford F-250 3/4 ton 360/435/205 4 wheel drive chasis.
If you want it cheaper... Mac's sells the parts for around $150.
Then just go get the old worm gear pressed off and the new pressed on. The bearing preload is nothing to worry about. They'll be able to instruct. Did it to mine and it works great.
I did'nt have to worry about the bushings.
