bolt removale and install

I was almost done putting a new steering box in, when on of the bolts that go into the frame, heads snapped. I've been told to bound it out with a hammer. Is there any tricks to installing the pitman arm. I only have basic hand tools.
THANKS!

you can go buy a pitman arm puller for $10-$15 at your local parts store...

something like this:

http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=36861

or

http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=36865

these are cheaper, but you might not have a Harbor Freight close to you...

Go to sears and get you a screw extractor. They work pretty well if you are carefull. Basically you drill a hole in the bolt, then screw this in and it backs the bolt/screw out.

As for the pitman arm, the puller is great to have when removing the old one. Just tap the new one on. Use a rubber hammer or a block of wood to keep from messing up the arm.

dont use heat on the pitman....it will come off just takes some finess...

heat can distort the metal properties and weaken it...there is a lot more stress on that arm than people realize. weak=bad
