Wow replaced steering box bushes what a difference

Post by SASQUATCH »

My steering has always had a bit of play like most do, I collected new bushes, gasket and oil seal from SSVC spares at the Breeze and changed them today.

I cant believe how much better it is almost no play at all, I should have done this ages ago.

Hi,

Yeah the two bushes, the oil seal plus a gasket for the side of the case. The worm and pin were ok just cleaned it all up, my mate Special Greg borrowed an adjustable reamer.
Topped it up with Millers steering box oil happy days
