cotter pin faux paus

I am trying to remove the steering stuff to put on my z-link.
Of course the castle nuts and cotter pins were rusted into oblivion so I just removed the nut and sheared off the pins.
Now what?...
Whats the best way to get those joints apart?
Do I drill out the cotter pin holes?
Whats the deal.
Even the new z-link has the cotter pin sheared off in the hole...do I drill it out too?

Re: cotter pin faux paus

Use the fork-shaped pry bar or a crowbar, lots of that anti-rust spray stuff, a big hammer, and yell at it a few times. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] What's left of the cotter pin should push out, you may still have to drill it. But you will need to put a new one in there.
I didn't know that new z-links came with sheared off cotter pins?? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Hey if you dont have a prybar take a hammer and wack sideways on the joint. NOT down like your tying to knock it off that wont do anything, hit it sidways like your trying to turn the tires with a hammer. Usualy a few good wacks and it falls right off, pretty funny.

The new z-ling is made using a recycled rod, thats why mine needs to remain intact...for the core charge refund.

Just out of curiosity, from whom did you buy your Z-Link?
Thanks,

Re: cotter pin faux paus

I got the RRO bolt on spoa kit.
Went together real easy, only two complaints though.
Z-link cotter pin hole is plugged with a sheared off pin.(probally due to it being made from recycled parts)
U-bolts are like 4" too long...just need to cut 'em off.
Not really bad things though, and you cant beat the RRO perches!

Re: cotter pin faux paus

so what your trying to say is all that is left is the parts left in the hole of the stud?
just use a 1/8" drill drill and go SLOW it's come right out!
