Legend has it that when Joel Pritchard, William Bell and Barney McCallum made up the rules for pickle ball in the mid-1960s, Joel Pritchard's dog kept getting in the way. Pickle, as the dog was called, would chase after the discarded balls and disrupt the game. Thus, the game became known as pickle ball.

How to replace lower ball joint in 1997 el falcon futura

Hi Dazza

The tool you're looking for is called a pickle fork. (A.K.A. ball joint separator).

  1. Get a new one
  2. pull the cotter pin
  3. Loosen and remove nut
  4. Insert pickle fork above ball joint
  5. Hit it with a hammer
  6. When it drops, unscrew it from the sleeve
  7. Put new one in
Then have an alignment done

\Best regards

I'm trying to replace the idler arm and having a hard time seperating the ball joint. i'm using a pickle fork and a air chisel with a pickle fork in it ant ideas thanks lou

Make sure the jack is under the A arm and not on the frame. You could buy or borrow a ball joint seperator tool from a parts store. Or try placing a brass drift or a socket on the steering knuckle and hit it with a hammer while prying the joint apart with the pickle fork (two people). As for the idler arm you should use the special puller made for removing it.

How to take apart an inner tirod end passenger side for 2002 dodge caravan ?

Use a tie-rod 'pickle fork'. Brace the tie rod with wood against a solid surface, use the pickle fork to remove the tie rod end, out of the center link. (Cotter pin, and nut removed first, of course!)

Here is a photo of a pickle fork,,9376.html
(Your local auto parts store should have one. They don't cost very much. Make sure it is a tie rod pickle fork, and Not a ball joint pickle fork. Look at both at the store, and you'll see what I mean)
