I'm stuck on this: what is supposed to be holding the deck-height adjust lever assembly onto the frame bar? This hole is threaded on the inside, but if that's a set screw in there, it is totally flattened on top. Might have to drill it out? Any advice?

I drilled it out without harming the threads and was able to tap the assembly off the bar. The frame is totally stripped now, waiting for warmer weather to paint and begin reassembly.

Not sure why all these pics are in landscape orientation. They're portrait on my PC. Any way to change that?

Did you take those with a phone? That's where they usually rotate as they want.

Yeah with my phone. But I see now that they are correct in the actual post--just sideways in the attachment box at bottom. That's fine!

2 questions:

 

1. What's the best way to remove these ball joints / tie rod ends? When I put the rod in a vice it just turns. I've tried wrapping it with rubber and steel wool and neither one worked. If I grip the other end in the vise, seems like the rod will twist or bend before the threads give. Kinda stuck on there.

2. This little hole in the brake pedal assembly--am I missing a grease nipple here? Or is this just maybe a hole to drip some oil in?

Thanks,
Joe

Can't help on the brake assy! Did you back the locking nut off before trying to unscrew the tie rod end? May need some heat to break it loose.

Are the nut and the end separate pieces? I thought there was just a hex face on the end of the ball joint assembly.

 

Edit: Upon learning there's a separate locking nut I was able to get 3 out of 4 removed. Last one still being a pain but soaked with more Deep Creep and will give it more time. Thanks!

Got the last rod end off and found what looks like an exact replacement:
