New steering and today's adventures
#1
Went and replace all of my steering components today minus the steering gear box and power steering pump and lines, those were all replaced last year. Today's focus was on all new linkage parts to include new pitman arm, idler arm, center link, inner and outer tie rods on both sides with new adjustment sleeves, and new lower control arm cam bolts. Had some issues, my "K" member (factory) has been smashed and was knocked back into the steering linkage causing it to rub, so I had to beat it back into position. It took me a bit to figure out how to install the new flex coupler on the steering box, youtubed a video and found I needed to cut the pins off to make the new one work, pain in the butt, but it worked. Then I found that my driver side tire has been rubbing my new rubber fuel lines that I ran do to pinholes in my factory lines, probably gonna replace with oem now. Then I noticed that the vacuum modulator on my transmission had lost the vacuum line do to heat, someone replaced the metal line with rubber so naturally it got hot and warped. Lastly I had to reposition my passenger side strut bar as it was greatly off center. So, when all said and done, my car is not aligned and drives ten times better than it did on the way to the auto skills shop this morning. 40 year old parts must not be good anymore...
