    @SuperDuperCruizer is going to help me take the guts of my mini truck steering box and transplant them in to a 40 housing if anyone wants to see how that works. I assume Stump you have a bench vice.

    I've done a couple of these. Might want to put the Teflon ring on that piston and throw it in the freezer to make it easier to install the piston without nicking the Teflon ring. I also soften the sharp lip within the housing with some fine sandpaper to help keep the ring from getting nicked.

    Yeah, I would say so, but I'll let others say so. Birf seals are also very involved, as in, it requires pulling the hubs, axles and knuckles.
