A bloke near me has ordered a kit for Gemmer steering box from a Dodge 200 / 300.
We are wanting to know if you can just press the worm onto the shaft. We were planning to cut the old worm off (not all the way through and the split with a cold chisel).

Haven't thought about the yoked part, yet.

Thanks, Jarrod.

An attempt to press the old one off will tell you one way or the other. Heating won't help as the shaft will be warming up just as fast as the worm.

if the worm comes as a separate part ,then the shaft must come out.......pressing the shaft out of the worm will be easy ,but how do you propose to press the lot back together?.....i wouldnt think pressing on the steering wheel end would be a good idea,and looks like you are going to need a special gripper for the shaft closer to the worm.......incidentally,the Ross boxes in Inters have the shaft friction welded onto the worm,and the two have been known to separate while driving.......I once had an AS 170 that had broken the steering box three times ...drivers then refused to drive it any more........the reason was the cab had shifted on its mounts because the rubbers were all disintegrated.

If you are going to be having a go at it and once you have the new worm gear in your hand don't worry about trying to press the old one off, use an angle grinder and cut it length ways to release it. Even if you only cut 2/3 of the way through then talk to it with a chisel. That is of course it is removable.

Cobba, that was the plan. Not touching it until the parts are in hand. Only place he could find parts - Argentina. Hopefully in transit.

Cobbadog You are a naughty boy! He said Argentina, not Columbia.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
