1968 Chevy C50 Steering box

Hi i am building a truck and i am using the C50 box but i need a rebuilt kit or at least a place to get the seals. I have tried Napa, Fleet pride and all of the advance etc. Anyone know where to find the kit.

Did you try Rock Auto ?

I looked and they go up to C30, not sure if that would be the same.

Re: 1968 Chevy C50 Steering box

oh yeah... i wanted a 6v53T for my K-55 GMC project but settled for an 8v-71... regarding the seals take them to the local bearing house along with your vernier calipers and they should be good ... is your slave cylinder leaking they almost? all do

If it is a power steering box then Auto Zone has the seal kit. Looking at the box now, looks like Duralast part # 8701
