Steering shaft

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!!
i am trying to disconnect and/or remove the steering shaft in my 83 CJ w/auto xmsn. i have removed the plastic pins to try and collapse the shaft but no joy. the clamps at both ends are loosened and i want some opinions on which end to try and release and how. TIA and Happy New Year.

Re: Steering shaft

feeling shafted???LOL ....unbolt the box from the frame and it will give you just enough room to get the shaft out...

Re: Steering shaft

Last time I pulled my shaft out I had to remove the steering box, it cam off the column end easily then, was a pain to get off the box end.

Re: Steering shaft

Funny enough, I had this problem. I used a little torch and heated up the shaft and keep trying at it.

Re: Steering shaft

No need to remove the box.
The splined steering shaft in the column retracts into the column. It's most likley stuck. It's been a while but some WD40, needle nose vise grips, a screwdriver and a hammer did the job. Start off by taking out the clamp bolt, move the shaft sleeve down as much as you can, then gently pound the splined shaft back up into the column. Keep playing with it, it'll go.

You had to do what to fit those little tires?
I'm sure glad I own a CJ!

Re: Steering shaft

Loosen the column support bolts under the dash. The column assy will slide rearward enough to remove the shaft.

No need to drop the steering box or collapse the shaft.
