Rebuild a power steering box????

I have a '27 T-Bucket. There is a lot of play in the steering box. It is chromed so I would like to just rebuild the one I have. Is this possible or would it be better to buy a new one and have it chromed? Thanks Brian

With the cost of quality chrome these days, I would rebuild (or have rebuilt) the box.

Never mind I thought the adjuster screw was as far as it could go but it wasn't. It still has a little bit of play but not enough to buy a new one or worry about getting this one fixed. I really do appreciate your help. Thanks again Brian

2-late, can you get me a good pic of the primary/secondary linkage off the driver side of the carb?

Yeah I'll do my best may take a day or two but I will try to take lots of pictures all the way around so everyone can see what I'm talking about.

It feels smooth the whole time I can just hear and feel the extra "boost" when the secondaries open up.

Thanks Guys talk to ya tomorrow Brian
