1956 Chrysler Steering Box Disassembly
by Don Verity
I finally got around to taking apart the spare 56 Imperial steering box.
This is the same box used in 55 and 57. The only special tool
I needed to take it apart is shown in the last picture with the O-rings that I left out to
make it easier to assemble. You would need a few of the special tools to set it up properly though.
Some might be able to be made. There are no rebuild kits available anyway that I know of.
I got around some of the special tools with the vise and a pipe wrench. There are lots
of finely finished parts inside. I did not take apart the worm gear, as I didnít want to
mess with all those ball bearings.
