Welcome.......Moving your post to the Ford section.
The steering boxes in those are made by Ross, quite common with a few other brands...Cub Cadet, some JDs
Usually, its not the bearings that wear out. Usually, the cross shaft breaks. Pretty sure you can get bearings for them.

Just pay for the shipping...you may want to replace the cam follower available on ebay for 13 bucks....and install a thrust bearing,,,about 20 bucks also on ebay...although you can get the thrust bearing from McMaster Carr...for a lot less...I just don't recall the part#

I sent you a PM yesterday...have not heard back...this is what you need?...I did have to cut the old steering wheel off so that end is a little hacked up but it is still usable ....the cam follower is usable, but worn a little so it should be replaced...the bearings are in place and good....you have to pack it with grease when you reassemble it....there is supposed to be a locking nut on the cam follower that is missing...that is how I got this machine
