Where do you get a 7/8 allen wrench? I cant get the bottom cap off one of my Ford knuckles and may have to take the kingpin out to pull the knuckle off.dotrappe said:Looks like it will need a special socket. If you can pop it out it might have the 7/8" allen hole. If it does, I'll send you a 7/8" allen wrench to get it out. I have a couple of them I picked up at a military surplus auction. Let us know how it comes along.
What's even weirder is that the driver's side has the regular 7/8" allen like normal. I'll get the BOM tonight, I knew there was something I was forgetting to take down.Shaker said:Never saw that on a 60 before.....My only guess is instead of it being the "normal" allen head in the center they got a X style socket to help remove the upper king pin.....Never saw that before....what year BOM does that axle have? I'd like to know.....Tim
requires around 500-600 ft lbs. or torque......pull on cheater bar until your nuts are about to shoot out your pants legs.....or you can do the above lug nut-impact trick.....Bushwhacker said:Once you take a kingpin out, whats it take to get it back in to the right torque specs? Can you get them in tight enough with a 4ft cheater bar?
