Steering Box Overhaul

I'm attempting to rebuild the steering box on my 1955 Farmall 100 as I have 1/4 turn of steering play. I'm confused by the shop manual instructions. It says to remove weight from the wheels and place wood wedges between axle and steering gear housing base. Since I need to remove the upper gear housing from the engine, what good are wedges since the engine is supported by the gear housing? And since I need to remove the gear housing base, would I not need to lift the engine at the clutch housing? How do I stabilize the engine if I do that? Shop manual instructions attached.

There isnt any adjustment in that gearbox just replace worn parts bushings,bearings and seals probably the key and it will be like new again. I have done several with great results.

What I did: I removed grill and radiator. Contrary to what the manual tells, I then first removed the tierods from arm (16) and pulled the U-bolt and the pivot shaft and dropped the front axle. Then removed the big hex cap (4) and screwed the steering shaft out (steering wheel needs to come off). Only then I pulled the four bolts holding the steering housing assy to the engine block.

The wood wedges is answered in the manual, to keep the gearbox from tilting. I assume this is if you are removing the entire front end. Yes, jack it up at the clutch housing, dont worry about the engine being supported. It will stay in place.

Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory. However the number of AC tractors still in existence today as either restored or unrestored examples is a testament to the quality of their products. This in itself is always apparent here in the U.K when attempting a purchase, as no matter what the model or condition the price will always be strong. ... [Read Article]
