where can I get a rebuild kit for a 66 mustang steering box. i'd like to see if I can't rebuild mine instead of buying a new one.

I know you are trying to save $$$ but the Flaming River new needle bearing steering boxes are well worth the money. I have never had a rebuilt box as tight as the Flaming river box.

'71s used a saginaw box similiar to the older corvettes with the PS hosed running directly to the box. A much better design than the external hydraulic cylinder boost.
