[Healeys] DWM Uprated Steering Box

I've got one sitting on the bench (it's too cold, I'm intimidated by 
R&Ring the grill, the trafficator is a PITA, blah, blah, blah). I know 
one Lister has installed one--sorry, can't remember who off the 
top-of-my-head--but for all that have seen these I have a question: the 
'tube' the steering shaft goes through has a bunch of fairly deep 
scratches on it, has anyone else seen this?  These are scratches in the 
metal that have been painted over; they look to be machining scratches 
as they run the length of the tube, though not continuously, and are 
slightly spiral shaped (I'll get a photo tomorrow if anyone is 
curious).  They don't bother me, as they won't be seen, but I have to 
wonder how they got there.
