Of course that wasn't retaliation, me not finding the buttons and
I can see I wont win this, even if I win this.
So I will resort to the age-old "yes dear" And leave you to your rude,
vulgar self, showing the professionalism that your years of blissful
ignorance have bestowed upon you.
Truly Neil, you are a god - your older, better paid, and have wisdom
as old as the fjords of Norway.
I salute you, with a big shout-out "YES DEAR!"

That's a mighty good point there Doc! ...even if you were just kidding
Now I don't argue with KJ's definition of "professional" and how being paid
legally makes you a professional, but I suspect that (as usual) the reality
of things is just different than the book definition.
Just another one of my $0.02.

$0.02 to himself!
Smash, grab, and run like hell!
KJ's 5 finger discount method of repair
(where he'd find a steering box to steal, who knows)
Go buy something cheap ($2 headlight frame) or something like that from a
junk yard. Mine doesn't really check whats in your hands when you pull
it.... Drop the steering box in your truck and pay for the bracket....
Although.... they do have LARGE fork lifts......
Anyone here ever worked in a boneyard? I always feel so bad for the ppl
working there..... I can't imagine that they get paid enough, especially in
An interesting theorem. Now (stifling some laughter) if I pay you to do it,
does that make you a professional? (Sorry, don't take it personal, just
havin some fun...)
Depends on. You happen to have neighbors who seem to be running a used car
lot with much of the merchandise up on blocks or missing parts? There ya go!
Until they move some of their wares, they won't be any the wiser.
Lotsa vehicles (especially older trucks) end up laid to rest in some
cornfield somewhere. Before the rust takes hold or the vermin move too far
in, get what you want. Nobody will ever know by the time the law comes
around to make the former owner remove the old vehicle.
There also many vehicles left resting in the "off season"...
I have yet to see the junkyard that really does. The one I frequent you
could probably drive a whole car out of there and not get caught. Actually,
come to think of it someone did do that. They seemingly found *something*
that would run and made it all the way across town to a gas station before
getting caught. Had they not stopped for gas, who knows???
If I thought for even half a second that the truck I wanted over there could
be persuaded to run, it'd be gone! ;-)
Now, if I would have seen that, I would have probably hurt something
"Oh, it doesn't have a brake pedal." "No problem!" "Wait...the radio is
out!" "Back it goes!"
I guess that's why whenever a vehicle lands in the junkyard they turn the
key to on and they leave it there...so the battery will run down and it
can't be started without some assistance.
That is true, but I would reckon especially if you were in your vehicle when
they lifted it up and away, they could get in pretty big trouble, especially
if nobody ever saw you again...although I suppose even that happens more
often than you might think.
I'd have to admit that with a proper set of mechanical skills and bodywork
experience, a small junkyard might be a real ball. I can just imagine a few
V8 fired K-Cars or maybe a few siamese vehicles...or maybe a really, really,
really, longbed pickup! World's longest schoolbus, anyone?
Can you tell I have just a little time on my hands?
William The Guesser -- guessing at what fun owning a junkyard would really
be, especially with some skills!
I watched a guy use one of these on one of my rigs to get the idler
only he used an air hammer with hit. Had it the whole job done in
about 10 minutes. I about

Take the steering shaft off,it's onlt 1 11mm bolt and pull it off by hand...
next pry up on the fender to allow access to all 3 bolts... a prybear here
works wonders...next you loosen all 3 bolts and remove 2 of them ... by
doing this you can usually tilt the box to allow access with a pitman arm
puller to remove the pitman arm.You may have to remove all 3 but do not
remove the lines...as far as the little seal that makes putting the puller
on hard , simply use a small screwdriver and work the seal up into the
box... it's just a dust seal and wil fall back down when you are done...
once it's pulled off, put the new one one, and voila you're done..Don't
forget to massage the innner fender back down to hide the bolts.... Bobo
