70's Benford 15cwt dumper steering parts

Post #1 by minimad220 » Mon May 19, 2014 6:18 pm

Hi All

I need some help (don't we all for owning these things)
I've recently aquired a late 60's/early 70's Benford 15Cwt dumper.

It is in a very sorry state having been robbed of parts and sat on a very exposed hillside for 20+years.
It was obviously looked after once as all of the underside is thick with many decades of grease (plenty of moss growing on top of it now though) so the underside is not too bad.

My problem however, is the steering box has been opened at some time (a long time ago) the inside of the steering box is fused into a rusty lump and the steering column is also rusted completely solid.

Can anyone help? Were these steering boxes fitted to other vehicles? anyone any idea where i might be able to find something i can use to make a replacement?

I'll need to find out if i can repair the belt clutch as well at some point but i need to get the steering repaired first if we have any hope of getting it moving again.

Thanks
David
