Awesome thread. This really is deserving of a Sticky as many of us will need to rebuild those Ross units at some point. Thanks for posting this in such detail.

I'm working on my steering box. lower race came out easy, because it was blown to pieces! Upper race was a different story. But, I was able to get a dremal tool in there with a cut off wheel and split the race. A chisel removed it easily after it was split.

Thank you for this post! My 1650 has a 1/4 turn play in it now and was worried as to what I was going to be getting myself into, but thanks to your post, I'm far less worried, Thank you.

Have you tried adjusting the follower in a bit?  Too far & you get tight just off center both ways.

I did this rebuild a couple of years ago on my CC106. I was surprised at the low cost of the parts given the cost of most other IH parts. My steering was locking up on me and it got kind of scary at times. Just for fun at the Tipton IN show a few years ago I went down a line of about 12 CC's and checked the steering play. Every one was at least 1/4 turn some even approached 1/2 turn. I don't know how you can mow straight with steering like that.

There are 2 sellers on eBay that make me wonder/ one has a "rebuild kit" for some kind of obscene price something like $963.00/ and another that sells "rebuilt" columns for $250-some with stainless outer tubes. How hard do those tubes come out? Threaded into the housing or pressed? If pressed in we should be able to do that DIY style, while we are at it. The one on my CC1250 is wallowed and split at the top from the bearing being gone so long.

I see alot of Ebay posts about a "super steer" fix for these Ross columns, a thrust bearing that goes on the outside of the gearbox.
Has anyone added one of tehse and would you have the numbers off the bearing? I'd like to see if the local Motion Industries can get it.
