The threads on the steering box cover end are stripped on my BT7. (This, the
end plate on the steering box with the threaded fitting that the stator tube
feeds through, that accepts the brass olive, and locks the steering stator
-I have already tried a new brass nut, -and the threads that are worn ARE the
ones on the steering box cover end.
Has anyone got a means to address this without replacing the steering box
Barring that, --Does anyone know if the steering box cover end can be replaced
without removing the steering column from the car? -Or if it would be worth
trying to do it "in situ" ?
