The PO welded the steering to the Saginaw. I will not be doing that. I will need to fabricate a new shaft.
Since I found a new steering box I will be taking the old one apart. I want to see if there are needle bearing parts or anything else that could...
It’s an early M38A1 thing. I like it!
Contacted a guy in CL with a replacement. Gonna get it tonight & compare the movement. I hope my problems are not in my hubs
