On my '53 C750 I took the wheel off and hoisted the cab up and over the shaft. I think anyway! Been a few years since I restored mine. Glad to see one being done.

I would be willing to bet it has a Gemmer steering box in it like many trucks of that era did.  That bit of data might be useful in research. Shaft is part of the box if I recall, the outer column housing can be removed but you end up putting the box in and poking the steering shaft up through the bottom then assembling the rest of it from the top.  Might need a helper to accomplish this.

When i took Dennis's C600 apart some hack had cut the column  and put a power steering box in so it came apart easy, when i put that truck together I put the cab on and then put the new box and column in in one piece, a little safer that way as those boxes and columns are hard to come by in case of a mishap.

Tony and Geoff, Yes it looks to be one piece and we were thinking bring the cab over it but was not sure. Thanks for the help guys. We are also looking for one floor panel if any one has any ideas.

The shaft is one piece on all the big Fords at least through '56.


Remove the column clamp and lift the cab over the column. If it has full floor panels remove them and leave the steering wheel on.

I that vintage it was common for the shaft to be one piece with the steering box. Not saying I am 100% sure but many were that way

How does the column come apart. we are going to remove the cab and don't want to ruin any thing. there is a clamp at the bottom of the shaft but we can't find a joint to break it apart. should we pull the wheel and leave the column attached as e remove the cab?
