Ford V48 roadster steering box

Recommended Posts


I'm in France and I own a 1935 Ford roadster. I'm renewing the steering box. I ordered any relevant parts in US but the worm and the steering sectors seem not to fit together. Has somebody such experience and is a bad machining possible?

I have not restored a 1935 Ford, so I cannot speak from experience, but bad and incorrect parts are sold every day.


The 1935 passenger worm gear should be 2.89 inches long and have either a 15 or an 89 stamped on the gear, the sector gear is P/N 48-3575 and the parts catalog does not give any identifying information.


You can probably get better help on the Early Ford V-8 Club web forum. There are several people who have restored 1935 Fords that monitor that Forum.


The Forum is free to registered participants and it is dedicated to Fords built between the years 1932-1953.
