Re: Vega steering box in a 40 Ford PU

Re: Torque tube shortening recommendations

Re: Help ! Help !

Those "Bendixes" will get 'hung-up' on the ring gear on occasion, which it sounds like yours' has. And what you say is the general idea for freeing the culprit......EXCEPT......try it like this. ...
