I've not got in to this steering box before apart from adding oil, could you tell me exactly what information you need (as I'm not yet familiar with the internals) and I'll do my best to have a look for you when I do the change, I'll even try to take some pictures if possible.
Restojon:This is my problem Should you ever take the steering box appart, please count the 5/16 balls and let me know....

Gentlemen, have any of you tried to renovate a manual steering box? - I have just stripped one and to my surprise I found that in the main nut there were twenty-seven 5/16 balls - according to the manual (57.30.07) there are only 26 balls and also in Haynes they mention twenty-six balls. Counting and re-counting I came to the same number: 27 (twenty-seven).
Now, I have a number of manual steering boxes as spares and I opened up a second box - Guess what: 27 balls! - My question: is it so that we Danes are equipped with an extra ball or what? (No funny comments...) - I have re-installed all 27 balls and it seems to work. - Have any of you faced this problem? - Regards, Chris Varming
