850 Steering Gear
Posted May 06, 2011 - 11:00 AM
So my 850's steering gear plum wore out - I can turn right all day, but going left is a no go.
So I am trying to get the gear out which is turning out to be tricky...any tips?
Do I have to pull the steering wheel and shaft/pinion? How do you go about that?

If so there should be a manual in the Manuals section.
Most the side plate with the pitman arm on it has to be removed, them the steering wheel has to be removed and the cotter pin removed from the adjusting nut and them it needs to be removed. Then the main shaft will come out of were the nut was removed.
