Question about 1989 Chevrolet G20
I need to replace the steering mechanism driver on a 1991 chevy g20 not the pump but the canister that drives the steering arm. I have removed the arm from the spline and removed the canister like device from the chasis. Question is... how do i get the arm back on when the replacement is attached to the chasis. or would it be better to remove the ball joint and install the arm off the vehicle then hook up the ball joint after. also how do i know if the arm is in the right position when i put the arm onto the splined shaft.
Cannister is your steering box...arm is the pitman arm. check to see if there is a thick alignment spline on either the arm or box. This locates the arm in the correct position. If not center the steering wheel(turn all the way to one side and count turns all the way to other side and divide in half for example, three turns from one side to the other side = 1 1/2 turns to center) and put both front wheels straight ahead, then install arm onto box. It is far easier to put it back than it was to remove.
