No doubt some will have seen my topic about removing the pitman arm, after getting a standard one and breaking almost immediately, I managed to get a garage to try it in their press, after a lot of messing we managed to get the arm stable enough to apply pressure, however at 2 tons it was beginning to worry us that something might break so we gave up.
And then Tom came to the rescue, he has access to the proper tool so we had a go with that, it was tight but it went quite easily, so he had a go at the other one ( I have 2 vehicles in bits at present), with a crack it went. Superb, no heat, no violence, no swearing.
I can't thank Tom enough for his help as I was beginning to wonder if I could ever get this sorted.
