    Yeah BFH for the steering arm. Hit down not up it should pop the conical washers loose. The try and grab them and pull them off. Once you get them out it's usually pretty easy.

    Part # 38873 at napa for brake lines. It's about 26" long. I paid $32 for the pair.

    These will work for a 10b and a 60 I believe. They will work with a 44 too you just have to mod them in some way. I don't remember what? Check the part # thread for 44 owners.

    Hey, your truck looks like mine.
    Try this for removing the steering arm. Take a min 3lb sledge and wack the arm straight down as hard as you can on the "Numbers" that are cast into the top of the arm, near the steering box end. I originally tried for 2 hours beating it every way I could then someone told me about the numbers and it only took 2 hits :bow:
