How-to: Rebuilding the Jeep-Ross 'TL' Steering Gear!

Ross TL gear rebuild

     At the 2011 Midwest Willys Reunion, Moses Ludel was guest speaker to a large group of vintage Willys-Jeep enthusiasts. The majority in attendance own 1941-71 models. His topic was restoration of vintage Ross TL steering gears. These gears were original equipment in all Willys 4x4 military vehicles, their 4WD civilian CJ counterparts, the Willys Pickup and Station Wagon, plus the Jeep FC150 and FC170 trucks.

     In this 33-minute Flash streaming video, Moses Ludel's audio comments accompany each instructional slide. If you have a 1971 or earlier Jeep CJ or a Willys model that needs steering gear attention, this slideshow presentation helps clarify vintage Jeep steering gear needs and vital rebuilding details! Hear Moses Ludel's footnotes and additional commentary in the video.
