I am in need of a good steering gear box for my 1952 'B" allis chalmers. the follower that slides in the worm gear, has worn out, and broken off. There is not enough of the follower left, to use as a pattern to have a machinist, duplicate it. Also the thrust bearing, at the bottom of the shaft is toast. the tractor is in terrific shape, other than this problem. If anyone knows where I can obtain the gear box, or who can rebuild my box, then please E-mail me at farmer0100@ywave.com

Steve gave me some good advice,on a fix, however this was done 3 yr's ago and has got me by till now. I am writing this time, to let other gear box suffers know that a place I found on line called Sandy Lake something, in Sandy Lake Pa. has new aftermarket steering shafts, with worm gear and follower, and at a reasonable price. just under $90.00 shipping extra. They e-mailed me , with the info and I'm sure that I will order from them. YA ALL TAKE CARE NOW Ralph

ralph, others may give you a place to look for a new box. i can tell you that i "welded" a new follower on mine. i think someone sells them, you drill out and weld in new. what i did was build up a layer with 9018 stick rod, then another pass, then another, etc. after it was 1/2 inch round and 3/4 inch tall, i started to shape it with a small 3 inch cutoff wheel and do-more grinder. i test fit it several times in the slot. it is kind of a tapered dowel. I washed and cleaned my bearing. seal was not much good. I drained out the oil and packed it with grease like a wheel bearing on a car. Reassembled and ben running like that for about a year, no problems. If you cant weld, a weld shop might be able to build it up. The grinding is not hard, just time consuming.
