How to remove connecting rod from Rockshaft ?

Postby carmanic » Sun Nov 10, 2019 2:11 pm

Apologies if this has been covered already but I searched the archives and could not find an answer. I am attempting to remove the Connecting rod and pin from the Rockshaft but to no avail. (workshop manual p8-15). All cotter pins have been removed, the center nut is completely loose and I can turn the large flathead screw, but the connecting rod pin will not budge. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Nevermind, I unscrewed the locking nut in the center of the connecting rod pin until it pushed the operating lever off the control rod pin. Then using a 1/2 height and a full height nut, I installed them on the pin as a jam nut assy, and was able to loosen the connecting rod pin with a 3/4'" box end wrench. Once the pin was was loose I removed both nuts, unscrewed the pin the rest of the way with a flathead screwdriver, and Voila ! Now the internals can be removed, cleaned & rebuilt. Stay tuned.

Hi,
I guess nobody wrote an answer here.
I wasn't sure if it needed penetrating oil to help loosen it, or something else was the problem.

I would grease inside the bushing there at the pin, when you put it together. :)
