I removed the worm shaft from the piston in my power steering gear box, when I was installing a repair seal kit. I need a diagram and instructions for reinstalling the 30 ball bearings. The instructions from all data manual reads: insert shaft into piston so two grooves are visible between valve housing and ball nut. Insert 22 balls into ball guide hole while turning shaft clockwise. Install 8 remaining balls into one side of guide and place opposite side of guide onto it, then secure ball guide to piston. I have removed the pit man arm from the sector shaft, and removed the piston assembly from the gear housing. I need a diagram identifying the holes to install the balls in.

We were not able to find a diagram to help you re-install those ball bearings. We don't usually try to repair a broken seal since a re manufactured unit is pretty reasonable. We are sorry we couldn't be of assistance. We have refunded your donation because we were not able to provide the information you requested. Thank you for giving us a try. I hope we can help you next time.
