It is well made. I installed it and ran my impact gun until the impact did not spin any more...at all. Then I broke out the 3ft breaker bar. I could barely move it. I then put a 6ft! cheater bar on the end of the breaker bar and kept torquing it down. The pitman arm slid right off after a few more turns.
Measurements: Your shaft will have to be less than 1.5" in diameter. The pitman arm will have to be less than 3" wide on the shaft end.
Bottom line: This thing will tackle the worst of pitman arm problems. It it doesn't then it will likely pull the splines right off the shaft. In that case you should get another box anyways.
I don't like the pickle fork method, I have torn boots using it over the years. I initially tried a U - shaped puller which deformed and slid off. It's a little pricey for a single job, but I found it well worth the money considering how easy the job was with the "right" tool.
I spent 3 days attempting to remove the Pitman Arm in order to replace the seals and stop a horrible leak which would drain the system within a day. I soaked the thing in PB Blaster, hit the sides and the puller bolt with a 3lb sledge, applied heat, and only managed to bend the 2 pullers rented from Autozone and Advance Auto. Nothing worked until this arrived. I removed it from the standard, "No Frills", packaging and applied some synthetic grease to the threads just to ensure everything would go smoothly. I then fit it on the power steering gear box which was in my vise and used my 1/2" impact to tighten the bolt on the tool. 10 seconds and POP! The Pitman Arm was loose!
For those curious as to why I just didn't cut it off and buy a new one....
I wasn't able to cut the pitman arm off due to standard LHD pitman arms being keyed differently (a few degrees difference) so I REALLY needed this to work. I know this because I ordered one that was supposed to fit from Amazon and compared the two.
Needless to say, this will remain in my steadily growing arsenal of tools. Even if it never get's used again, it's saved me the headache and money of having to source a replacement from the high cost dealership or overseas.

This did NOT fit my 2008 Ford F-250; it was actually too small. Too bad, since it's so heavy duty - just need it to be about a half in diameter bigger toward the opening.Published 3 months ago by jansenet
