I got the box off, but can not figure out how to get the gears or big nut off the steering shaft???? the shaft and gears can't possibly be one piece...Come on guy's :smash: :confused:

Yes, it is one piece.

Your sh**ing me.....if it is one piece than how did they get it ON there???

Are you trying to get the steering box pieces off of the steering column? If so try taking the clamp nut loose that is closer to the firewall. n then try sliding it off.

take the steering wheel off, loosen the clamp above the box, and pull the column off the shaft. The shaft itself is pressed and brazed into the gear.

Yep, early Mustangs were this way. The steering gear all the way to the threads that hold the steering wheel on is one piece.

OK, ENGIN is right, the clamp is loose and it will not move, Yep, i gotta pull the entire shaft out from the firewall side, and i don't know if i have room for that, without taking the whole colume off. I'm going for it right now. :smash:
