  • steering gears....

    Curious about my Pitman arm placement on a new steering gear. Do i cycle the gear first to find center then aim the pitman arm or is it recycling and doesnt matter... Any suggestions or solutions would be greatly appreciated...

    pitman placement

    its been a long time but if I remember correctly the pitman arm has a notch and will only go on one way and the new box should come taped to center but is easy to double check

      The pittman arm can only go on in one spot.

        Yes there are 4 grooves on the spline. The arm must line with these, i was just wondering if the gear could be fully cranked to one side, if by turning the wheel it would damage the seals. Not sure how to tell if its centered

          you don't have to center it, just install it.
