Late 8n steering sector removal
I have an 8n that have identified as a 1950 model, there is no serial number on the block but I have dated it by using pictures and descriptions of the steering setup. It has two bolt steering sectors and no proof meter in the dash. I am trying to remove the right hand steering sector but it will not budge from the steering box housing. The left one popped right out and hit the floor when I hit it from the opposite side of the steering box. The left one, however will not move at all. Does anyone have a good way to get that out? This was all brought on by a steering wheel that locked up when turning to the right, which I have read is a common issue with these. I ave got a new steering shaft, steering wheel, all the bearings, etc back in but I want to take it all apart and rebuild the sectors and everything.
Also, it seems to be leaking gear oil from somewhere. I assume it is maybe leaking from the welsh plug in the bottom as there is a large buildup of oil coming from the back of the steering box housing near the plate that houses the starter button and the gear shifter.
Thanks for any information you can provide!
