Ordering Information For Steering Gears
When ordering a steering gear we usually ask for a part number off the steering gear. Usually the part number we need is a stamped number.
The housings on all gears will have a cast number that will determine what series the gear is. Once we know the series and brand we can tell you where to find the stamped ID number.
TRW/ROSS Pt. # TAS65024 example. This gear will have casting number TAS652292. The stamped number will be on the opposite side of the input shaft. The number will be on a 1.5' x 2.5' flat machined surface. Two rows of numbers will be here. The top number will be the ID number. This will show TAS65024.
Sheppard Steering Gears will have a stamped number by one side of the sector shaft on a flat surface. Example of Sheppard part number would be M-100 (cast #) and PCL1 (stamped).
