i am working on a CASE 400 DIESEL... i am trying to convert it from manual to power steering by swapping parts from 2 case 400's. i can't see how to unhook the u joint just under the radiator so the steering unit can be removed from the front tub. i can't see a pin or set screw or anything...is it screwed onto the shaft? can anyone tell me how to separate the long shaft from the dash.. from the short shaft that enters the front steering unit? thanks for any help

Case really made an engineering goof on the 400 which they corrected on the 800 and 700.. {more on this later} (1) first remove the roll pin in the U-joint. (2) loosen the 4 bolts holding the pedestal to the engine ..about . (3) Pry the pedestal about forward (4) remove the u-joint from the PS unit. I have rebuilt 4 case PS motors in the past two years and the 400s require the pedestal moved forward in order to remove the u-joint. On the 700/800, the pedestal is about longer and thus the u-joint can be removed without moving the pedestal.

I don"t remember the exact details, but I, too, had a devil of a time getting that u-joint out when I replaced it....

The front u-joint has a roll pin in each side threw the joint and shaft along with a half moon key. I've never found an easy way to get any of this apart. You will have to take the 2 bolts that hold the bushing bracket below the fuel tank off.

i found the roll pin and was able to get it out and tap the joint off the rod by taking the bolts out of the bracket under the gas tank. thanks for all the advice!!
