    Steering box lubrication help.

    OK, so I now have steering, I have cleaned out 78 years of crud and rebuilt my box, now what lubrication do I put in it??

    1939 Willys steering box, manufactured by Ross I think.

    Fueled by Jim and Luckies.
    Still doing all the shit I used to ;-)

    You need to track own original spec Guy, some used a grease rather than oil.
