    *found problem* Can\'t get my steering box back together

    I took my steering box apart to replace all the seals and clean any shavings out from tapping it and can't get the worm to screw into the rack piston. I don't have the ball retainer tool, but I can hold everything in place with a piece of 3/8 air hose. Just can't get it to screw together. I am alternating the black and silver balls.
    If anyone can help it would really be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Brett

    I haven't been into mine yet but everything sounds right. Are you holding your tongue right? /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Found the problem. I had two boxes apart and apparently mixed up the rack pistons. Going to start a new post about ratios. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
