Howe recently stepped up to the plate with a whole new steering box cast entirely from aircraft-quality aluminum. This new box is both lighter and stronger than traditional iron jobs. Additionally, it features hard-anodized wear surfaces for increased longevity. In this cut-away, you can see where Howe taps the casting for hose fittings. This is a great new product because you get a perfect, never-used-before unit instead of a rebuilt box with questionable tolerances.
