They don't completly dissasemble as far as I know. You can replace the shaft seal. I was never able to remove mine so I left it alone.

To get the cylinder completely apart requires cutting it open and then rewelding it when you are done. Most kits have only the seals and wipers that go around the shaft. I pulled the seals and such out of mine with a variety of picks and screws. I actually screwed a screw down on opposite sides of the shaft and then pulled on the screws with pliers until the seals pulled out. It took a while, but I finally got all of the seals, washers, wipers and such swapped out. It was the easiest part to repair on the steering.

That's exactly what I did today and it's being refitted tomorrow. I think I see this car as something special so I'm quite daunted by it . I must remember its 60's technology lol.
Thanks for your help

1960s technology gets the best of me every time I work on my 62. Rebuilding the steering has been the most enjoyable part of the rebuild on my car.
