Gemmer Steering Box Project Update

Recommended Posts

Hi, the last batch of new worms will be made soon. We have manufactured the entire contents of the box and have assembled them in both left hand and right hand drive cars. They work great. Better than new with modern seals and all roller bearing construction, removing the old style bushing set up that caused all the problems. We will make another run of the worms and roller wheels soon, as there was more demand than the initial supply of new worms. We will not make any extra worms for inventory, an it will probably be several years before we do them again. We will only make the worms in runs of 10 to help keep the cost down. Enclosed are photos of all the new parts we install. We can also manufacture new steering wheel shafts and chrome tube covers, as we have made them already also. Thanks for all your support, John Cislak, Classic Auto. 413-543-9017

With more than 25 new worms installed over the last year and a half we are still getting some people who are asking about doing another run of worms for the Pierce Arrow cars of 1929 and 1930. Worms are made in batches of 5 or 10 and we have a few people on the waiting list. After this next run, I will close down this project for 5 years before we attempt to do it again. It just takes up too much time and capitial to offer this as an on-going project. If you need a box overhaul act now. More than half of all boxes do not need a new worm making the project much less expensive than a total replacment. Call the above number for more info. You can see a box in person at the Hershey fall meet in the RED FIELD RCH 39&40. Thanks, John 413-543-9017<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

Would you know if your kits would fit a gemmer with stamped number 2171 2 from a 1924/25 maxwell (chrysler)? Thx
