Default steering gear box 68 mustang

I'm working on a 68 mustang coupe with power steering. Like most of you (probably) I have play in my steering gear box. Can these be rebuilt? are special tools needed? does anyone have one thats good to sale for cheap? I'm on a real budget build as I'm working on a 65 as well.

Before you rebuild, follow the adjustment procedure in the Factory Service Manual. Power steering boxes are less likely to wear out. Don't try to do this without the book, it's critical to do the right things in the right order.

Depending on the condition of the gearbox, yes.
