Anyone know of a speed sleeve and seal number for the manual steering box?

    For a 1974 SII? Seems I have a groove on the shaft and it is leaking fluid. Thanks.

    SKF Speedi-Sleeves are identified by the diameter of the shaft that they are to be installed onto.
    Do you have the shaft diameter measurement??
    if so, go online and go to the SKF Speedi-Sleeve website and view their online catalog to find your answer.

    The seal p/n would be the same as the original P/N. It is a Saginaw unit.

    Just replacing the seal will likely solve the issue so long as the bearings are still in good shape.

    Another possibility is to clean the shaft well using appropriate solvents, perhaps roughen the immediate surrounding surface (edges) with coarse sandpaper, and apply some metal-filled epoxy, e.g. This. While soft, wrap with thin plastic (e.g. thick Saran wrap or plastic bag) to give a flat, smooth 'original' surface. Or, carefully file and polish when hard to restore original dimensions.
