Thread: pitman arm

  1. #1

    Default pitman arm

    I have a 94 chevy p/u and am trying to remove the pitman arm. I am using a three jaw wheel puller and banging with a maul. It has never been changed since new. It is a beast and has not budged. Is there a way of removing it without a torch? I would like to get it done today to get it aligned. Any suggestions will be appreciated. I can make a tool if I have to. Thanks Don

    If your three jaw tool is slipping off, try a pitman arm remover. There made by alot of tool companies like SnapOn and OTC. Try your local auto store for a loaner. Also are you using a impact wrench?

    I finally decided to make a tool like a pitman arm puller and used an impact wrench to try and loosen it. The wrench puts out about 600 lbs/ft. I even hit it with a sledge hammer from on top of my tool. The arm never budged. Can I heat without damaging anything?
