Defender Steering Drop Arm - Removal

Hi guys,

I've been told that my power steering box is leaking on my 90. And that I need to change the seal. Problem being I've undone the big nut below the powersteering box holding the drop arm on. But it won't shift!

Apparently this is a nightmare of a job?? Can anyone give me an insight as to how to get the drop arm off without damaging the splines on the power steering box???

James

I used a pitman arm puller, then heated it up and still no luck after a day of hammering on it. I actually ended up being the puller because the arm was so stubborn. If it's really giving you a problem remove the steering box and take it to a machine shop to be pressed off. That's what I ended up doing and wish I'd done it to begin with.
