Scott, I have 3 left hands and a right handed wrench.

I was able to easily rebuild my steering box.

Matt will tell us all to check out this site, its one of the best:steering box rebuild

I used John Deer Cornhead grease for lube, its the correct type, NLGI 00 and is far less $$$ than the original Studebaker grease which is still available. a couple bucks vs $20

Thanks for the help! Ah yes, Mel. Great guy. I'll check in with him, or pursue the steps outlined in the attachment. Doesn't seem too difficult. I'm about to drop and rebuild the front suspension anyway. Thanks again.

I asked Mel about this yesterday. As you probably know "rebuild" depends on the condition of several internal parts. Go ahead and give him a call.
