So I have a 1972 Ford 3003 cylinder diesel with power steering I'm attempting to repair the power steering gearbox but I'm having trouble finding parts diagram for the gearbox all of the diagrams that I find more of a style that have separate caps on each side out of the boxes in mine does not have that it has one large one. Someone has already been in this box so I'm trying to make sure everything is present before even attempting to repair my question is has anyone else run in to this type of gearbox and can you help me find a parts diagram.

Sounds to me like you have a 4000, not a 3000. Does your box look like the one in the link below? If not, can you post a
picture of what you have? All 3000 boxes have two caps, one on each side.

Do the lines from the power steering pump go to the steering column or directly to the cylinders ? If they go directly to the cylinders then it is an aftermarket power steering system and the steering gearbox is a manual one.

I stopped in at the factory a number of times. They treated me well when I wanted to swap out the 19 inch snow flake front for a 21 inch. Maybe I dealt with your father in law. Mine is a 1974. I rode a number of enduros on it in 1975 and 1976.
