Hello there, I'm Bob over in the UK and I am the very proud owner of a 1946 Hudson Commodore 6 Sedan. I'm in construction during 'working' hours ....and play with old cars, motorcycles , Landrovers and music when I have any spare time ...which my wife says is zero.
I have owned my Hudson for about 5 years now and have a question regarding her. This winter I decided the play in the steering was finally too bad to live with so stripped the steering box off and got to work. My question is twofold:
A: What make is the steering box on her? It has a short number stamped into the casing but no name. Is it an 'in house' Hudson box or ( as a friend over here has suggested) is it a Ford component ?
B: Where would I buy service parts for it such as the worm and nut and bearings? No bearing supply company over here is being very helpful and al shake their heads in a most sad manner especially as soon as I say what my steering box is off.
Many thanks for any help any of you may be able to give me!
PS: My daughter lives just outside San Francisco so when I next visit I may be able to meet up with one or two of you.
