Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Ross type steering question?????
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By brass car guy on Monday, February 05, 2018 - 12:26 am:

I recently had an aftermarket model t steering gear given to me. This is similar to the Ross however its made in Nebraska and no information about instalation.

Now my question:

I need to match this gear with a model t column. I have one that will work and fit. What about the triple gears in the steering housing. Do I remove them , use them or if I remove them how do you connect the steering wheel shaft to the triple gear shaft?

thnx

Les Schubert makes a plate to lock the steering shaft to the steering wheel shaft, replacing the planetary gears.

Many years ago I had a original Ross steering gear in a T speedster. The Ross shaft is longer and runs from the gear end to the T steering wheel end, there are no triple gears or a sun gear. You will need to remove the triple gears and lock the T sun gear to the T triple gear shaft and most likely need a modern steering gear U joint to connect the T shaft to the Ross type gear shaft. At one time someone was making a locking device that goes over 3 short triple gear pins and grabs the T sun gear teeth. Another option would be to make a new shaft from T steering wheel to modern U joint connecting to Ross type gear shaft.

Thanks Dan for Les's name on the locking plate. I got back to typing this and didn't see your post.
