fj60 pitman arm tre.

I half remember somebody sayint this TRE ( the one that goes into the pitman arm on a 60)was rebuildable?

and it may have involved a penny...as a spacer I think.

I did a couple searches and didn't find anything.

it's getting scrapped once I get a new drag link made, but in the meantime , it'd be nice if I could tighten it up a bit.


can anyone shed some light on this for me?



thanks for any info,
ryan

Here's what I recall from reading that post. At the Pitman arm end of the drag link is a cotter pin. Pull it and then back out the inner plug at the end of the assembly with a large-blade d screwdriver. Then pull the innards. Somehow you can slip a penny in as a spacer - don't remember the details, but it's probably obvious once you get it apart.

You can buy a rebuild kit from SOR for $40. I just got mine in the mail today, actually. It's pretty nice - has all the parts you need, even the cotter pins and a new zerk.

funny story: I was all set to start the big Memorial Day off road run with my local club, mostly Jeep guys. I was visiting one of the club member's house where a bunch of out of town Jeepers were camping for the weekend. I pull in with my FJ62 and park next to the line of lifted Jeeps. I go to move my Cruiser across the driveway and the drag link falls apart while backing and turning. I was out of the run, as the little knob on the end of the link was so worn down it wouldn't stay in well enough to be safe. VERY embarrassing! Scary too, because 15 minutes earlier I was doing 70mph down the highway with my five year old daughter in the seat next to me...

GO HERE

It was a Toyota Trails article way back when. It's on the TLCA website under Articles and Features/Technical.

Thumbs up

damn you guys are quick!


perfect, just what I was lookin for...


I just want this rod end to last me another week, till I get the parts together to swap in a proper pitman arm and drag link, then it's getting chucked..

So, 2 cents is about exactly what I wanna spend on it!!!






Thanks!!!
ryan
