    Start soaking it with liquid wrench now and hit it down, up, and sideways with a BF Hammer. When are you going to send a pic? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Heat is the best solution. Small propane torch from hardware store works well $9.75

    You should be able to steer fairly well without the raised steering arm, if the drag link is adjusted correctly. Try adjusting the drag link until the steering wheel is centered again (make the drag link longer) and you'll be able to turn the wheels both left and right. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Just knock the arm down then grab the cone washer thingys then screw them out like a threaded nut. I've just about got this down to an art now. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gifWith your drag link adjusted just don't go wheeling or do anything that requires any amount of wheel travel up front. the drag link just won't take the angles.(knoledge form experience)
