    i have a 78 1/2 ton SWB that the steering box is starting to leak quite a bit my question is, is the steering shaft connection the same on the 78 as it is on like an 80's model

    I'm pretty sure the shaft size is the same, but the lines may be different. Earlier years used a flare fitting. Later they went to an o-ring fitting.
