HELP, Trying to get a Tie rod apart!!

Hi,

I've got a 93 F150 with a bad steering box, so we're trying to get it apart. The tie has to come off from the pitman arm to get it apart of course. It won't budge, we've beat the crap out of it with a seperator and it's not even pretending to move. Tried putting some heat to it, still nothing. We're running out of ideas. I hate to put it all back together just to bring it to a garage so they can seperate it. ANY IDEAS????

HELP!!

Re: HELP, Trying to get a Tie rod apart!!

are you talking about the tie rod or the pitman arm? Are you using the right puller?

Where are you beating it at?

Hopefully not at the ends of the threaded stud , but on the sides of the female hole. with a pickle fork (available everywhere), and beating on the sides, they almost always pop loose, but not w/o damaging the dust seal of course and im assuming your NOT referring to where the pitman attaches to the steering box output shaft which require a pitman arm puller.

make sure your puller is pushing on the arm and rod rather than the stud getting jammed between the two forks. this could be the case if the stud or hole is worn and the stud is way in there.
