Doing a rebuild on my steering box. Found a couple small blemishes in the cam drive. Picture is the worst of the two. Should I be concerned?

The one in the photo doesn't look like a problem to me.

I'd be more concerned where the offending object went! smooth it slightly at the edges and press it back into service........

The bearing races don't look too good.

As you have the steering box apart, would you mind measuring the OD of the bearing race (The part that fits into the steering box casting) as well as the diameter of the bearing? Thanks

I have rebuilt 2 TR3's and also suggest the Revington improved spring loaded steering box top cover. www.revingtontr.com/...steering/steering/tr2-3b-worm-and-peg-steering-box-system
