Guys, I have a set of used tierods I recently purchased and need to adjust them back in a bit. Does anyone got any ideas on how to free them up? The ones im replacing have been pretty buggered up by past owner. They took a torch and blew a kerf down the better part of the sleeve to "loosen" them up,complete with the nice slag drip all down the tierods. I have drilled a small hole on the bottom of the "new" tierods to get some penatrant into them and have been fillin with PB blaster.My next trick would be heat. I really dont want to mangle up this good set and wondered if yall had some tips for breaking these loose. As always thanks for any help, Hoss

After soaking with PB Blaster, lay the end with the stuck threads on an anvil (or equivalent) and give it a good massage with a heavy hammer while rolling the threaded area around on the anvil with your free hand. That should breakup the rust in the threads without damage.

I tried everything on my wd-45 but decided to just buy new ones. The only thing I didn't try was to use an air die grinder with a thin cut off wheel and split the tube to get it free. Make the split on the bottom so if any water gets in it can drain out. You can weld the split back up but it probably wouldn't hurt to leave it, then later if you want to change widths it should be easy.

Heat them up and quick cool them with water. They should almost fall apart.

If you can hold the tube end try twisting the solid end with a pipe wrench.

Soaking them is good. Heat is good. Working them over with a hammer is good. I don't mean such that you disfigure them, just hammering all over them with a good back up behind the rods. At the shop where I used to work, we separated stuck PTO shafts by chaining one end to the bottom of the mast assy. of the forklift, and the other to the forks, and lifted!

Using a forklift is a neat idea. Instead of a (shop)press you a have a "puller", for lack of a better word.
