Was amazed to still hear people talking on these.

Came with some Lada stock and tools I bought a few weeks back, I'd forgotten about it until I spotted it yesterday in the garage. Probably just leave it in the Niva for the period look.

Re: Today I mostly .....

Visited another ex Lada dealership owner, this time in Kidderminster, got myself some more Lada goodies including a Ladascan ( Zel? ) together with other testing equipment, numerous main dealer tools with the associated tool boards. Oh yeah! and a backlit Lada dealership sign from the 90s. :)

Re: Today I mostly .....

Re: Today I mostly .....

Tom, Well done, I should know this but what does the correct tool look like? I've always had to have mine pressed off by a hydraulic press. When I get time I'll get a steering box out and take some pics of the puller attached to the box. Its just a heavy duty puller, by design it holds the pitman a...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Removed not one but two pitman arms from RHD steering boxes for a forum member. No need for heat or bashing when using the correct dealer tools designed for the job. :)
