Part number 060371


Hi all.

Can anyone help me. I need the above part, it's the ball race and assembly from the steering box. I only need the one as one of mine is fine but the other is useless. All the usual suppliers (and some less usual ones. Thanks Frank but no luck) are awaiting stock and the earliest I've been quoted is end of the year. 

Being unable to put the steering back together again is really holding up progress as I want to get it in place before the engine and box go back in.

If anyone has a spare, I'd be happy to pay a reasonable price or replace with a new one when stock eventually arrives.

This is seriously annoying because I skipped these during a clearout of LHD stuff last year.

Perhaps somone else who has been doing V8 conversions can help, because they will be

Putting a RHD worm in a LHD box, and will have some bits left over.

Suggest Celia/Ian or Jon Nolan?

I do hope so, Frank. Although there are some other small tasks to be getting on with, this is really holding me up and at this time of year there's little enough incentive to go into a cold workshop and fiddle around with bits and bobs when I had hoped to get everything back in by the end of the year.
Hopefully Celia, Ian or Jon might see this and be able to help.

Hi Mike,

I have converted my Peerless to rack&pinion (please don't tell anyone) and have the original steering box still hanging on the ceiling.

I'll try to open it tonight to see if anything usefull is still inside?

Keep you posted

That would be much appreciated Erik. I'd be more than happy to either pay for the part (if you have a serviceable one) or replace with a new one.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Mike

Hi Mike,

It's all coming back to me now.
Somewhere back before 2004 i found out that my original steering box was in really bad condition, full of rusty parts.
I then bought a second hand TR3 box which i wanted to use for the parts.
Obviously i didn't use them because of the steering rack.

I dug out the TR box and found it was a bit dirtyblankstare

These parts came out of the boxbiggrin

As you can see it not perfect, the ring has some very light corrosion spots but nothing too serious i think.
The cage and balls are ok.
The other ring which is pressed into the steering box is perfect but i couldn't get it out.

Please let me know if you can use these, otherwise i will have to try again and take out the other ring.

Cheers,
Erik

BTW, this steering box is either hardly used or overhauled because the worm and peg are looking brand new.

Erik. PM sent.

Nigel, I've already got a list a mile long.

In fact, I've already had my box overhauled with new bushes, peg, shims, gaskets and (roll of drums) a new Revington TR top plate with the revised spring loaded plunger.

The only thing that has held me up is this bl**dy bearing cage assembly.

.......and don't I know it!

 

The Revington top plate appears to be a rather well thought-out bit of kit. The principal benefit being no longer having to adjust the compensating plunger to allow for slop in the steering. As I was reconditioning the box anyway, I thought it made sense to fit one. No idea yet of how well it works but time will tell.

 

Thanks to Erik, a replacement roller cage is now winging its way to me.

 

Cheers Erik.biggrinbiggrin
