Snow has all melted away, sunny, nice day
to replace my worn driver side Tie Rod on Angel - my 1983 380SL.
What a job that is with the tools I have!!
One end of the Tie Rod was way more difficult to break loose than the other.
I used a HF Steering Knuckle remover,
my Fork, Hammer, PB Blaster, and my Blow Torch.
Kinda difficult doing this on the ground.
Passenger side is OK for now but I need to
address it too.
Fortunately I watched
at the GTG adjust his new Tie Rod with the old one and did similarly.
Took my 380SL out for a Test Drive and she steered much tighter and no alignment issues.
I'm wondering if my technique is suspect that makes this difficult for me?
You guys got any suggestions before I tackle the passenger side Tie Rod?
