Hi Rudy looking at the pictures of the steering box I noted that the spring on the steering column is above the collar. The spring should be between the steering box and the collar to keep the seal under slight pressure.
You may have already rectified this?
You have done an amazing job restoring the wreck you started with.
I take my hat off to you.

Great, great job and what I’m about to say is too late. I’ve always found it was best to leave front fenders, grille and hood off of car until the Cord is running, shifting and all mechanical issues are sorted out.

The down side is if you drive a car around with no front fenders be prepared to repair the stone chips you will get on the rear fenders.

Good point Mike. Working around the front fenders on a Cord is very tedious.
Leaving them off until the drive train is sorted out is a good idea.
Some rudimentarey front fenders could be made from tin and fitted during trials.
I think the last item to be fitted should be the hood. Access to the hood bolt holes means leaving the drain pans off as well as the glove boxes and probable removing the front seat. Planning the work will save a lot of hassles.
My understanding of fitting the hood is to lift it onto the body, align it and fit the bolts from under the dash board.
The attached picture shows the provision for accessing the bolts.

I should have added to my original comment you do all the sorting out with the stub frame up on jack stands with front wheels off the ground.
