I've never had to straighten them on an NAA, but I straightened one on
my 8N by heating it, laying it on a concrete floor and rapping it with a mall.

It was no where near 4 inches off though.

Are you sure that was all that got damaged?

Whatever works!

however it is probably worth mentioning that cold straightening is usually preferable to hot on parts like this, when convenient, as is the is the case here due to the fortuitous conjunction of the various parts and the availability of cheap, powerful jacks to provide the umph. Also, it is easy to dent the rods if you hammer on them hot, while cold bending tends to make even, smooth bends.

Question for you Royse. When you take the radius rods off, don't you loose your tranny fluid? Also,is there a gasket under the knuckel where it attaches to the tranny? The reason I asked is that mine is leaking there and wanted to replace the gasket if need be.(see picture)

No, you shouldn't.
They should be blind holes that don't go all the way through as UltraDog said.

Is it for sure leaking, or did someone over-grease them and that is coming out?

Kind of hard to tell from here. I hope its nothing serious.

Someone has damaged your transmission by installing too long of a bolt into it.
Those tapped holes should be blind on the inside so no fluid comes out.
I would drain the tranny then clean the threads real well with lacquer thinner. Then I would install a stud with some locktite thread sealant on it.
Simple repair that would last a long time.

Thanks, I'll check and see for sure what the problem is. They may be over greased,or as Ultradog said the previous owner may have put too long of a bolt in there. I'll wait for the weather to warm up and then pull the one that appears to be leaking off.
