Yep, my early 8N steering box has been in dire straits for a few years now, but I've been putting off the inevitable, mainly because of money and priority issues. A few years ago I talked with John Smith about this and he said, don't waste your time trying to rebuild it, bite the bullet and get a later box and install it. I'm afraid to of what I might find -how bad it really is, but since it is an early 8N, engine date code: I167 (September 16, 1947) and I have kept her as original as possible, at least with her original 'show' clothes and all, I'd want to keep the box original too. Yes, you will need to pull it completely off the tractor too. One options would be to find a parts tractor and hope it has a better box on it...good luck and keep us informed...
