    Has anyone changed a pitman arm seal on your steering box? If so, how would you rate it's difficulty? Any tricks to this procedure, special tools, or anything for me to watch out for. I have a '86 305.

    It's not to bad. You have to pull the pitman arm off, undo the 4 bolts on top to remove the sector shaft and pull the 2 seals and 2 washers from the bottom. The kit should have the seals and new washers. I just rebuilt the whole box and it wasn't too bad once I stopped mixing up parts from 2 boxes.
