The original steering box leaked like a sieve. There was also a lot of play in the sector shaft which contributed to sloppy steering. The only upside to all this was that the power steering fluid coated the front end and prevented the axle, tie rods, and oil pan from getting rusty. Painted surfaces and a non-leaking power steering box are a better idea. This one was plucked from a local wrecking yard, where several "Cash for Clunkers" donors were found.
