Dug this out of the top of the barn. Jackson Church Wilcox (Jacox) steering box. From what I read it eventually began Saginaw Steering. Any guess as to what car model & year this may have been from and would it make a good alternative steering box in a speedster (reason I kept it)?

No idea what it is from, but I would figure out a way to use it on my speedster!

The Jacox steering box has 2 bronze sliding blocks around the worm gear. It is a very smooth and easy steering unit.

They were mostly used in bigger more expensive cars. My father had early CASE cars and they had Jacox steering.

A few years ago Vintage Auto Parts in Denver(formerly of Seattle) has new old stock brass sliding blocks in stock.

It would be a bit of an engineering operation to make it work in a Ford. It could be done with a "bell crank" system.

just sayin'
