1962 Thunderbird steering gear box installation

Received the car with the gearbox out not sure how it goes back in and where those insulators go that I've read about.? Could motor is out so should be pretty simple. The bolts come in from the fender side or from the engine compartment side? Thanks for your help any links to diagrams or YouTube would be great, thanks Rich

I had to get my gear box rebuilt so I know how it goes in. its tricky but can be done.
remove brake master cylinder(disconnect lines so you won,t break the T like I did.
gearbox goes in from top shaft pointing up. undo motor mount bolts so you can jack up motor to make it easier.
I had to use a strap slung under gear and attached to hood hinge to position it. bushings should already be attached to gearbox. they do bolt though side fender.make sure steering wheel is straight find center position of gearbox and insert into steering coupler. I would also take cover off gearbox to make sure teeth are good before installing.
any questions e m ail me at amelectric@ymail.com
 
I have a badly leaking steering box on a 62 with power steering. I am trying to undo the nut on the bottom of the where the pitman arm attaches, but evn with a 4 foot breaker bar, I am only managing to turn the wheels!
Tomorrows job is to get an assistant to put their foot against a wheel while I have another go.
