Steering box and column

My 1951 has over 1/4 turn of play in the box. Pricing complete rebuild parts at Kaiser Willyís puts me in the $350+ range. I havenít pulled mine out or apart yet, but I wanted to reach out and see if anyone has one for a decent price that may end up being a better starting point than mine. Located in southeast VA. Thanks!

Shop around, you can find much better pricing KW is expensive and they sell the exact same parts as everyone else. "Quarter ton and military" is a good place. Rockauto is another good place
  

People think I go out of my way to piss them off.
Trust me, It's not out of my way at all.

Thank you! I know about Rock Auto, but not QT&M. Appreciate the tip.

I have a Ross housing that I can part with.  I have it cleaned up but no internals.  I can send you a picture if you are interested.
