Drag Link Removal

Post #1 by Reinking » Sun May 19, 2019 9:06 pm

Need to replace the oil pan on my 1963 Falcon and am having problems removing the drag link. What am I missing. Dot have my fork tool handy but the last one I did came out with a little tapping.

Thanks

I had to smack mine pretty hard with the fork to get it out. Sometimes they just get stuck

A fork will damage any grease seal present.
Loosen the nut (don't remove) and use a large hammer to strike the side of the part that the stud goes through.
