steering box rebuild help

I did a search and looked around but didn't find anything so......I have a 1975 Chevy truck power steering box that leaks from where the steering shaft connects. The auto parts stores want about $180 for a rebuilt one. But a rebuild kit is $49. So can any of you give me advice on how to rebuild the box. I do not know the type of box it is but the #s on it are 7802644. On the adjustment screw plate there is #304 in small print.(could be 804). Hope this helps you to help me!
Thanks!!

Hmmm see if this helps you a bit....

Hey Gator,

I had this issue with my 69 Beaumont (Canadian Sister car to Chevelle) I have a foctory chassis manual that tells you how to do it. And I also found a few articles in street rod and performance magazines. I too was faces with spending $145 plus core charge to get a new box. So here is an article to get you started. Also see if you can find a chassis repair manual for the truck, it will help you out. The work is not hard... Here is a link to one of the articles I referenced when rebuilding my power steering unit.

Hopefully this helps you out a bit.

Jesse

Thanks Jesse! Here are a couple bad photos of the box. By the way this steering box is in my 1955 1st series chevy truck. I added power steering to it and am trying to get everything completed now. (The steering box is out of a 75 chevy truck.)
