My steering box finally started puking fluid all over so time to repair or replace. I've already got it out of the truck but so now ready to find a replacement but so far I'm having no luck, other than in the UK. And from what I've read, it's best to get a new or reman box rather than trying new seals.

My truck is a LHD 1988 90 2.5 petrol and according to the parts manual, the steering box should be part number NTC1583. This is the Gemmer unit with the 6-bolt top cover.

Can anyone recommend a source? I emailed RovahFarm the other day but so far have heard nothing back.

Alternatively, I've read about converting to the 4-bolt box but not sure if there are different part numbers or which application I can use.


I appreciate any experience you guys can pass-along.

Thanks,

CARL

Gave up on finding a replacement box and decided to replace the seals and give it a go.

Luckily the steering arm came off without too much trouble and removing the leaking seals was pretty straightforward. Now just waiting for the new seals to arrive and I can bolt it all back together.

How did the replacement seals work for your steering box...any issues?
