You can rent a pitman arm puller from your local auto store if you don’t want to buy one. We rented a puller but it didn’t work for us. The first puller we trashed the threads trying to get the pitman arm off, even after spraying it down with PB Blaster. We did have an air chisel and weren’t going to use a torch because this would melt the seals, so we grabbed the grinder.
We then ground down far enough to leave very little metal so that we could use a hammer and chisel to crack the pitman arm. The pitman arm puller was left on with a lot of tension on it to ensure as it started cracking it would come off. After a bit of hammering the pitmn arm came right off and our son was sure happy. 00:00 Intro 01:05 How To Remove Stuck Pitman Arm 02:45 Our Final Thoughts How To Remove Stuck Pitman Arm
