First of all my stearing gear box is leaking I was going to buy one I found a guy localy that has one from a 76 supposely those are stronger than regular ones, then I told him that my gear box would always move up and down when I steered and he said that the holes for the bolts that hold the gear box are probably shot if this is the case the only thing I could do to fix the problem was cut the frame and put a new piece on there from a donor truck he happened to have one and he has a friend that does this job for about $300 he told me to bring the truck to him so he can inspect it and he could tell me for sure if I needed to do the cut or not but my question is if this was the only thing to do or can I perhaps weld the gear box to the fram to make it stay in place what do you guys think. By the way he would let me have the frame piece for free if I take the gear box. keep blazin !!!
