[Healeys] BN1 Steering Box Overhaul

 Among the cars in my stable are some post war Austin sedans, Austin A40 Devon and Dorset. I understand these cars use the same steering box as the early Healey BN1. Can anyone recommend a shop that can rebuild such a steering box. I'm aware of the Dennis Welch reproduction box, but I'm interested in a rebuild service.

Thanks in advance.

Fellow Listers,
Can a Facet solid state fuel pump such as Model 40102 be used on a 
positively ground car?

Not sure why you want to go that way. Normally these things last forever if you clean the contacts occasionally. If it has been wet or if a coil is fried all bets are off.

So, it doesn?t matter if it?s dead...I suppose it would be nice if it looked half way decent, but that?s not critical.
Any ideas?

Thanks to everyone who advised me where to get the top cover. All good info. 
I spoke with Bob at Autofarm and ordered one from him. This now guarantees 
it will never rain when I'm out in the Healey.
