I have a manual steering box on my 70 Chevelle out of the front cover it is seeping, finding drips of oil o the garage floor. Any way to fix it at home or have to get a new one or send it in. Thanks

if you rebuild your own box.. depends on if you can get a complete seal and bearing kit for it..

and how well equipped your garage or shop is...

its a lot easier to either exchange your steering box than it is to rebuild it at home...

depending where you live... there might be a power steering box rebuilder in your area...

if you don't do a lot of parallel parking...  you might want to check around.. for faster ratio manual boxes...  

there is a great power steering box upgrade article over at carcraft.. i can link it. or you can google it..  but thats for power boxes...

and if you don't parallel park or work out at the gym a lot... you may not want to swap to a faster ratio like newer cars have..
