Trying to take off the steering arm that attaches to the splined shaft at the base of power steering cylinder. Got it loose but not enough clearance to drop it down over the main axle. It also appears that the splined shaft will prevent removal of the main axle member from being removed by taking out the pivot bushing.

All i want to to is install new tie rods. The tie rod screws into a female thread in the steering arm, plus there is a pin going through it tat needs to come out. Any suggestions on how to get the steering arm off?..

Thanks, mike

Sorry about that no errors and no photos.

It looks to me like my easiest solution is to lllft up the power steering cylinder assembly a couple of inches.

Is that a reasonable solution based on what little info you have?.

Once you have the clamp loosened AND the bolt removed. try lifting the shaft up out of the pedestal and thus out of the steering arm clamp. Sam

Sam, it went up about .5 inch and still needs a good inch to clear. I used a small bottle jack with appropriate size deep socket and stopped when the shaft quit moving up. My manual only shows a pedestal shaft for a 165 - but it does show it going out from the topp.

Forty years of crud holding it back or something else?.

Update: Finally got it off. A combination of the pedestal shaft lifting and jacking one front axle gave enough clearance.
