Steering Gear Boxes

This steering Box was acquired from a gentlemen that bought it from a Ford Garage that had sold out. It was some sort of a floor demo that had been used to sell the Box. No name on the unit, but I thought that possibly someone would know what it was. Believe it to be NOS, but have no idea what make it is!

It's probably no good. Just send it to me and I'll uh, "test" it for you on my speedster.

Also for sale on the classifieds, you can add it to your line of credit at the bank, you won't buy it with loose change!

That is a very neat cross steer set up just like The Sprage. It would be nice to identify just what it is? John

I understand that there was a Ross box that was, like Bills, set up for cross steer, but the Ross I found at Chick is made for side steer like a Model A! I would love to find some sort of box that would work cross steer like this one of Bills if anyone has ONE THEY WOULD CONSIDER PARTING WITH? Thanks John

Seth: Hi From Iowa: Thanks for the heads up! Yes it is just what I would like to try, but a little out of my price range (Iowa Farmer)! I'm not saying it's not worth it I'm just saying to rich for me! I have a side steer Ross & can make do with it if I use an A or chev mount! Thanks John

Yeah, I want one really bad too. Even one of Les Schuberts reproductions would be awesome, but I just don't have the $ for that either.

I will say that I added friction shocks and panhard bars to my speedster and it makes a huge different in how well the car steers. The Ross/Sprague box would be nice but it's not as necessary as I used to think.
