The worm gear shouldn't be that bad that it really needs replaced, unless it's catching and you can feel it, which would indicate damaged teeth... Do the over center adjustment and other adjustments as indicated in the 1949-1952 shop manual ( it's online in the old car manual project. just google it ). It should fix it right up..
