Re: Stiff 35 Ford steering

Is yours in a 35 or later Body? Other than the plate, what other mods did you have to do to get the box in ? Thanks!

Most definitely. Bearings have only gotten worse. I pull down new trailers to check to see if they have Russian bearings.

Re: 35 Ford Brake problems

As I see it then, an option is to install something like some Speedway early Ford hubs along with early style drum ? Or find 46-48 drums, clean up, change bearing and install.

Re: 35 Ford Brake problems
