These include complete steering boxes which are precision designed and built to offer the best available feel for a worm and peg type Austin Healey steering box.

We can also supply a range of Moto-Lita steering wheels and bosses to suit your car.

AUSTIN HEALEY STEERING BOXES

Made from new drawings to an exacting standard. Over many years working with Healeys we have rebuilt literally hundreds of steering boxes and there was always some element of craftsmanship and engineering know-how required to make a good job.With a complete re-think, we felt they could be made to perform more smoothly and reliably. The root of most Steering Box issues is the casing which is often a less than perfect piece of engineering. We therefore set about acquiring access to original works drawings for reference and started from scratch. New CAD drawings and a brand new casing, based on a blueprinted original specification meant that our constant clearance worm (designed by us some years ago) could now be installed in a completely new box, along with many other subtle refinements.

Providing professional industry-leading toleranced drawings for every single component, has allowed us to produce every item under tight quality control, and therefore has a reassurance that the parts fit together correctly first-time and every-time. With modern computer controlled 5 axis machining we can produce a wholly superior product that outperforms all others on the market. Our constant clearance worm is exactly as you may expect, it has no tight spot, nor does it have increased clearance on lock. Like a steering rack it has the same feel and clearance on full lock as it does in the straight ahead. It is as close to the feel and response of a modern steering rack as this peg and worm design can be. The new columns are available as left or right-hand drive, adjustable or non-adjustable steering wheel, high or standard ratio, safety column or standard column.

Our steering boxes are supplied fully adjusted and undergo bench testing as part of our quality control. All you need to do is fill with the correct oil. 

A direct replacement for BN2-BJ8.

PLEASE NOTE: BN1 versions are also available from stock. Please enquire.

SAFETY COLUMN STEERING BOXES

Our steering boxes are supplied fully adjusted and undergo bench testing as part of our quality control. All you need to do is fill with the correct oil. 

The safety column option was developed by us some years ago. As a result of head on collisions, this indicated that the full column travelled back towards the driver. To reduce this problem we produced this conversion incorporating a universal joint and body mounting clamp together with a steering wheel boss centre. This is now offered on our new Steering Boxes or alternatively we can convert your existing column to a safety type if you wish.

IMPORTANT: Please note this requires relocating the horn and indicators to the dash board. BN1 versions are also available.

COLLAPSIBLE STEERING CONVERSION

Fitting a universal joint into the column means in an accident the column should move sideways rather than straight back. This can be done to any steering box whether old or new.

We are happy for you to send your old Steering Box to us for overhaul and conversion. As many old parts are used as possible.

CONSTANT CLEARANCE WORMS

The original steering worm design was meant to have a tight spot in the straight ahead position with increased clearance (play) towards lock. Unfortunately the original design very rarely worked out this way. Usually the tight spot is just off to one side.

With modern computer controlled 5 axis machining centres now available we have designed a new type of worm, we call it our constant clearance worm, which is exactly as you may expect. It has no tight spot, nor does it have increased clearance on lock. In fact it is as close to a steering rack as you may wish to get. Like a steering rack it has the same feel and clearance on full lock as it does in the straight ahead. This design fits directly into any original (not reproduction) raised lid steering box with no modifications necessary.

Available in LH and RH Drive as STD 3 1/4 turns ratio or the 2 1/2 turns high ratio with adjustable and non adjustable columns.
Supplied with column and cam assembled, ready for fitment to steering box.
