Anyone ever seen new (NOS) ones for sale ?

Anyone know where a re-build kit can be found ?

For 1972, manual.

Hi Reeves,


Try benchworks steering for rebuilding or parts.  They rebuilt my 76 rack 10 years ago. http://benchworksteering.com/

Shouldn't this work??.

http://www.flamingriver.com/index.php/products/c0013/s0001

Bought one from them that was supposed to be for a 72. It's not the same.
I've also seen other places re-selling them as correct.

Will check out / contact the re-build place.

Seem to remember reading special tools are required to re-build them ?

Just bought one rebuild for 77. kits are real inexpensive but need special tools to do it right.Could not find tool for less than 100.
