Re: replacing steering box, can\'t remove pitman arm
I just pulled mine of my 82CJ this weekend because I to need to replace my gear box. I just picked up a pitman arm puller from Napa. Removed the nut, put the puller on and started wrenching it. I noticed as it got harder to wrench that the puller started to bend. I then loosened up the puller and started over, but this time I would wrench on it, take the hammer and hit the pitman arm on all sides, spray a little WD40 on it and just repeat the process. After about the 4 round of wrenching and hammering the pitman arm just POPPED off. Be sure your head isnít under it when it pops.
