Separate names with a comma.
I've heard it before but never had a problem. Column wise for me the hard part is always popping the shifter linkage out of its bushing.
Aye, you are correct there. That shifter rod is like superglued into that bushing and takes a lot to get 'em unseated.
Also not an easy job to pop back into place either - but at least then you can use pliers/channellocks/etc. then.
On a different note, that steering column to shift rod bushing/grommet is to be replaced every time it is disconnected. The part number for it is 3575333 (as of 3/1/2021, the MSRP is $5.95 (US)). I have seen those bushings in black, white, clear, green, yellow/cream and in gray.
Yeah, the box and underneath it could use a cleaning anyway.
Time to replace the rag joint anyway.
Marissa is still hot even after all these years.
Yeah, I wouldn’t kick her out of bed for eating crackers!!
Just double-checking, but do the FFI Isolators still need the lower isolators? Or does that large washer just replace it altogether?
Large washers replace them.
Solid isolator between the frame and K frame and the washer on the bottom of the k frame with the bolt ran through.
Awesome. I was actually about to DM you on Instagram about it but I posted here first.
I’ll let y’all know how my attempt at this goes.
well, I'm halfway done, the front ones are set, but the rear ones are giving me a bit of trouble since the K-frame isn't lowering enough even with the bolts all the way out. And yes, I did try to do the driver's side first. I did finally break out the dremel after buying new cutoff wheels for it. I ran out of daylight since I started at like 4:30/16:30 in the afternoon. I'll get it done tomorrow morning. So far Camtron's way he went about it is pretty much working though.
Did you use a picker to get the weight of the motor off of the K before doing this?
Also, if you didn't split the upper ball joints you're not going to be able to lower the K far enough to get those rear bushings out in one piece. I used a pneumatic cutoff wheel do those.
No, I had a brain fart and didn’t get a hoist. I need to buy one anyway. It’s supposed to rain all day today, so I’ll do that in the morning.
and I’ve already resigned myself to using the cutoff wheels regardless.
Yea. I may have had to cut the drivers side too. Really don’t remember, I know I cut the passenger side for sure. It’s been a couple years and it was a rush weekend deal.
so, I got them in finally yesterday. Haven't been able to drive it since because I wanna get an alignment done first. That'll get taken care of this month.
