Can anyone tell me the bearing numbers or cross numbers for a Ross steering box on a 1931 Studebaker President? Thank you.

For both model 80 and 90, 1931 Presidents, the Studebaker cup numbers are 127624, and there are 24 5/16" balls, part 1X33. Same cup part numbers for FD, FH, 70, 71, 80, 82, 90, 91, and 92. Balls are the same from FC through 92 to B/1B to C-6C (1940).

Here's a photo of a 1929 President FH steering box disassembled. It uses the same cups and balls. This box was very rusty, and the balls were like rough gravel.
