Im looking for some Burman box parts to rebuild mine.

1. Balls
2. Gaskets
3. Seal ( can be upgraded to lip style seal but where can I get this )

Please let me know if you have any or all of this. Located in Socal.

I was looking for a gasket set a while ago. One of the members had created a template for the gaskets. I contacted that member, and he referred me to Larry at Alfa Parts Exchange, saying that he now sells the gasket set.

Hope that helps. Let me know if that info is incorrect.

The seal is a standard, metric-sized lip seal. Just measure the od of the shaft (which will be the id of the seal), the id of the housing (which will be the od of the seal), and the depth of the counterbore in the housing (which will be the thickness of the seal). Round these measurements off to the nearest mm. A good industrial supply house will carry the proper seal.

There are threads on the BB that discuss rebuilding these boxes. As I recall, the balls are also a standard size (I believe an inch-denominated size).

Didn't Burma Box used to advertise with those signs along the road? Sayings like:

His Alfa is so easy to steer
She rides without any fear

I have gasket sets, seals and ball sets
There are two different bottom seal/ O-ring and short boxes have an additional O-ring and lip seal.
I also have good used races, followers, cases and worm shafts, etc.
I also rebuild boxes, new lower bushing, etc. etc.

Are new or replacement filler plugs available?

Cheers.

Nice. Burma-Shave is exactly what I thought of as well when I saw the title of the thread.
