Drag Link Tie Rod End Replacement

Advertisements

 

Quite a lot of play in the tie rod end ball joint on the steering arm on the 1940’s steering fitted to the Model A, so time to change the joint.

The joint was really badly seized and rusted, so I thought I’d try the “Rost Off Ice” freezing and penetration spray from Wurth.

This stuff is tremendous, it works a treat, freed everything off very quickly indeed!

Removed the coupling, cleaned it up and replaced the left hand threaded tie rod end, and the refitted everything.

The bolts are a little too long and I need to align the steering wheel but happy with what I got done today!
