The transmission had been sitting open for years and was quite caked up on the inside, but it was in really good shape. It just needed new bearings and the top cover had rusted through.

I found this while blasting the frame. All of the holes for the brake cross shaft had been drilled wrong, filled and redrilled

The air pump had been rebuilt sometime in the past so it didn't need much. Just some gaskets, and the rods had been set up a little too tight.

The rear end was in good shape. There were quite a few filings from the worm wheel in the bottom of the case, but it still looks decent and usable.

The steering box and front end were in great shape. Very minimal wear. The steering box was full of water, but there was enough grease left inside to keep it from rusting. A casting flaw showed in the steering box after blasting so I brazed it shut, but other than that it needed nothing.

Hello, The Pierce-Arrow steering box appears very much like the JACOX design boxes used on Buick and a number of other cars and trucks to include Seagrave.

Interesting. It has Ross Gear & Tool Co. cast on the side along with Pierce Arrow.

I'd say the regulator spent some time on the Titanic.
