Wanted - need part - steering box ball guides
Posted by: martyscarr ()

Hi Folks-

I am need of the ball guides for a quick steering box, they are a bit longer than the ball guides on the regular box. I bought this QSB box disassembled and they were missing in the bucket of parts.

Anyone have a worn out QSB that they don't need the ball guides for?

Thanks in advance

Marty Scarr

I believe those are some of the parts Seth E. is trying to get reproduced.

I don't know if this is close to what you are looking for or not, but it is currently on e-bay. I suspect however that you want the part that a part like this holds in place.

It is advertised as "NOS NEW GM 1960 Chevy Corvair steering gear worm ball return guide clamp 5674519"

Correct. That part is the clamp, it holds the guide. I need the guide.

Here's a pic of a cross section of a similar steering box from a 56 Chevy, you can see both the ball guides and the clamp holding the guide.

Is it beyond absurd to try taking two regular ones, slicing an end off, cutting to correct length, and welding back together? Then you end up with the correct length.

No, not absurd at all. If I don't find the correct part that will be my next option.
