Ford 3000 Steering Gearbox Removal

I am trying to remove the steering gear box in a Ford 3000 tractor. Is there a way to remove the gear box without removing the steering column and dropping the fuel tank, or is there no easy way out. Any tips or hits would be great. I was also told that you cannot rebuild these you just have to buy a new one. Is this true? By the way this tractor does not have power steering.

Ok, so i now got this thing out. I found out what happened, the lower bearing on the steering shaft went out, and made the whole thing bind up. I am now wondering how far are the steering arms supposed to move back and forth. Right now they move a 1/4 turn. Does it need to be more or less. I threw the whole thing in the parts washer and i am planning on not rebuilding the bottom part, just replacing the bearing and reinstalling it. Or should i go ahead and rebuild the whole thing since i need to order parts anyways?

I'm sorry i do not understand your question.

I got the gear box out and a bunch of water/oil mix poured out. I'm wondering where did all this crap come from, also when i just about had it out it started to work properly. I think a bearing slipped and it got jammed up. I'm going to throw it in the parts washer to try to get all the water out and the rust spots off of some of the gears. I'll try to take pics.

Sad but true - you will need to remove the cowel around the fuel tank in order to get the steering gear box out of the tractor. The tank doesn"t need to come off as you can loosen it and lift and move it sideways to get the steering box out.
It"s not a bad job really. I"ve had them out a couple of times.
As for simply replacing the steering box, I don"t know why someone would say that.
All the parts are readily available from this great site as well as other places.
The power steering column is a little more complicated but also doable.
Good luck.

So we decided to take a shot at rebuilding it. Any tips, pointers, or suggestions. Does someone have a drawing of how these are supposed to come apart and go back together. I'm usually good at remembering how things come apart, but always like to have a backup.
