LHD Steering Drop Arm Needed

Looking for a LHD steering drop arm, part number QFW000030.
I'm installing power steering in my ExMOD90

If you have parts laying around I am also looking for the piping and the reservoir.
The motor is a 200TDi and the dear box is out of a Disco.

Dave, I think I have one, I just replaced mine. It needs the ball joint replaced, but let me see if it's still around. If it is, it's all yours.

What's wrong with the one from your manual box? Assuming they are both adwest boxes, the original arm should work. Part number STC1045, which SS to QFW000030, is used on both adwest manual boxes and power boxes, according to the catalog.

That's my plan at the moment anyway. Hopefully I don't find out I'm wrong like I did with the crankshaft pulley

So you might need to get an arm.... depends on how lucky you are. I was able to pull the disco arm off of the power steering box with no issues whatsoever. But getting the defender arm off of the manual box is kicking my butt. I went ahead and ordered a new replacement.

Used the box and steering out of my D1 for my D90 build.

FYI I always use two large punches as levers to remove the drop arms. This works even when pullers fail. Definitely leave the nut on, but loose, for safety.

Thanks for the advice. Do you just hammer the punches in between the arm the the housing of the box?

I got worried when I started reading on some of the UK sites that they resort to cutting them off!

It's coming off whole, even though I've ordered a new one. It won't win!

Take no prisoners!!!!!!!!

You can always try hitting the arm with some heat and then try with a puller or a pickle fork.

Disco arms don't have the ball joint. I think a RRC arm would probably work.

Whatever. I'm going to try and sell mine to some sucker with a disco that has a leaky box.

"Upgraded box. Guaranteed never to leak power steering fluid. Improved road feel."

Yep, just hammer away. It can be a little tricky sometimes because the punches like to slip out.
