    hey, went down to work on my truck today and got the steering arm off like nothing. with a little persuasion from the butt side of mr. axe and then using the handy dandy cone pliers which POWERMAD loaned me, i had it done in no time. just wanted to say thanks for all the help you guys gave me last week!

    Just remember, every modification/chore/project warrants the purchase of one new tool:D

    My problem is I end up making or at least modifying the tool. Got me a nice 9/16" bent-six-ways wrench for the distributor bolt ... but they sent me the one for GM *cars*, apparently, which is not the same as for GM trucks. Grrr :mad:

    Ended up taking off the wrench end and welding on a ground-down socket to make it all work ... mind you, it's great, much better than those stamped pieces of crap I've gotten at the parts stores. :)

    I have the same problem, some times the wifey doesn't believe either:crazy:

    Easier to ask for forgiveness than permission :D
