I need a hand with removing a split pin...

Post by Lex_Michdebus on Tue Jun 20, 2017 10:29 pm

I have this badly rusted split pin I can't seem to get out of the tie rod end thingie. I'm now at a point where I don't have any more split pin to grab to get it out... Is there a miracle worker in the house that can tell me how the flying f- these should be removed without that damn hassle every time? I'm going to grab the drill bits again (and they always break once or twice...), but next time I want to be able to remove the darn thing without having a stroke.

Who's with me?

Well... the new pins will get a nice coating of copper grease, but first I need to get the old ones out...

Well I if you hate them that much, get your own back and take an angle grinder to the nut and cut it off and buy a new Track rod end that has a Nylock nut on it and you won't have to use a split pin. lol!
