steering gear broke
Hello all, This is my first post here I usually just lurk and take in all the info and I must thank you all for the info and entertainment.
So here is something for your info or entertainment.
Last sat morning after a 60 mile trip the night before my wife hopped in the pick up to run up town. She backed out of the driveway and the pitman arm and steering rods fell of the steering gear box. I went out to look and the out put shaft ,the one with 36 splines was sheered off above the pitman arm. It look like it had been fatigued over a few years. This could have been really ugly you know ditches, barbwire, tow trucks. So take note as the position of your steering wheel if it is not as centered as you once thougth it was check out your steering box and pitman arm. I may save you from having to mend someones fence.
