    It's best if you get a manual on this. Some times it is easier to remove the engine and transmission. some times you can remove enough of the steering and wheel parts to spread the trans and engine apart to get a clutch package out and in. these are always a look and see type job. They are difficult to do, not impossible. You also have to remove both drive shafts, so both sides have to come apart as you have stated.

    I have been told that my 98 Dodge truck which has 56,000 miles needs a new steering gear box. Steering wheel has about 2 to 3 inches of slack. Have put on a track bar and a tie rod for 700 bucks and still...

    The gear boxes are just cheaply designed and made, its a very very common problem with these Dodge's. Even the new ones experience whats called the "death wobble", where the truck will all of a sudden veer left or right. The most common things ive replaced on these trucks to cure it is the track bar, and the gear box. $500 sounds about right for a new one, they arent very cheap.

    1998 Ford Explorer: No heat. Checked everything and can't find the problem. New thermostat was installed. still no heat.

    take out the glove box, you will see a white box about 3 inchs square with wires pulged into it, this is the diverter control,take the screws out, and remove it, then see if you cand move the diverter by hand too get heat, if you can then you need too replace the control or just lock the diverter in the heat position, i had this same problem last week in a 98 explorer and liked too never found it , ive got heat now!!!

    The problem lies in the shift lever in the gearbox. A poor initial design that was upgraded twice. The shift fork arms have spread enough for pins to come out of the groove they run in when the tiller is shifted to the last position. (Bending back into position would only be a temporary fix as would not be any stronger.) To replace shift lever, the gearbox cover has to be opened. Seperating the cover can be somewhat challenging. When prying cover apart try to not damage the cover gasket. Gearbox grease is very thick, so gasket's real purpose is to keep water and contaminants out. Leave all gearing and chains in place. The shift lever part number is 618-0245B. Or use assembly kit number 753-0869 (contains shift lever 618-0245B, position indicator, and roll pin.) Part will run in the $56-$68 range and can be found through MTD as well as Cub Cadet. Also can get through Sears PartsDirect.

    Front fork too narrow to fit tire

    sounds like the box may have been squashed. send it back to where you got it from or its not that hard to spread the forks apart by pulling them. used to do this all the time when servicing mountain style bikes that have been thrashed by customers :)
