So I'm tearing into the TJ. Have a few issues I need some help with.
Pitman Arm. I don't know what else to do. The box is shot - leaked like no other. I should have thought it thru better, but I didn't. I initially disconnected the steering column shaft and then unbolted the track bar from it. Got the box off the TJ with the pitman arm still attached. Well that was dumb since I have no leverage to get it off. Bolted the box back onto the frame so I could get the pitman arm nut off. That was a whole job itself. Got the nut off. Pitman arm is fused to the shaft. I've already destroyed two pitman arm pullers (cheap China steel), used heat, let it soak in PB blaster, etc. I've used heat in conjunction with a puller, tightening/heating, wacking with BFH, rinse & repeat. I got the arm to move literally 1/8 of an inch and am at a loss. Any ideas?
Also - I broke the safety catches on the two big connectors that are attached to the underside of the hood (trying to remove the back wiring harness to give me some more room to pull the valve cover. Any way to fix those connectors? Worst part is even though they are broke, I still can't get them to disconnect.
I need to get this valve cover off so I can post pics for you guys. You won't believe how clean it is under there. I think I changed the oil 6 times in 10 years (I know...I know). My WK get's better treatment
