Frame change first hurdle
Past the first concern. That Pitman arm came off the steering box easier than my possible fears. The shop part of the parts store that belonged to the deceased friend of mine is being operated by one of his ex-employees. He had the Snap-On puller, just charged me a $100 deposit to borrow it. I tried to get it off at his shop but didn't have room to swing my little sledge. He had to meet a guy so he was closing the place for an hour so I brought it home and got the floor jack under it.
Turned the bolt as tight as I could get it, hit it on the end with the little sledge, turned the bolt another half turn, hit it on the end and side with the little sledge. Turned the bolt until the arm was free. If the main eye spring bushings come out this easy, I could be home free.
