I Think I'll Just Jb Weld It.

The steering box 'worm' and roller gear are hardened, extensively. I've never looked into it, but wonder if such repairs could be made using the process camshaft folks call 'hard welding' (hardfacing, I think). Then again, box cores can be had for not much money...

 

Here's what a well-cared-for gear looks like (note the '177' stamped matches the number on the ID tag). -KB

We have a shop here in Dayton that builds up crankshafts and other high-wear areas with "hard weld" and then turn the journals down to standard size.  I would think that the same could be done to your steering worm so long as the surface could be blended with the surrounding metal.

 

Or just get a rebuilt box.
