pitman arm puller
Does anyone have information for a puller that doesn't require cutting a hole in the fan box to remove the pitman arm? I have the puller for working on trucks but would like to not have to cut the hole.

I am also about to replace my box. I found this piece but it is pricey. It does seem better built than the eBay one above.

I'm not understanding this problem.  I've changed the steering box out on my RV twice and never cut a hole.  I slid out the generator on it's slides and had plenty of space to do the work.

AGREE

I talked with Lon and he wanted/ needed straight on access to the central large headed bolt with the hex in the middle and used a 3/4" air impact tool to back the nut out against covering tool to push the Pittman arm off the sector gear shaft.

For those who said they had no need to remove any metal shield was it not in that area or did you use a different tool to turn the center hex?

To remove the steering box I used a small car jack in the storage bay.  My u270 does not have the radiator there.

I was able to drop the box down behind the light and fog light.. With a little finagling

I have the radiator for the generator in my drivers side bay. I removed it to remove the steering box and have access to the steering shaft bolts, hydro lines, and the steering box.
I then built a "ramp" out of some old laminate  flooring so I...

Lon can you verify the depth of the inside of the pitman puller in between the 2 plates?

Seems my guy made one the otherday and did not make it deep enough.. want to update the thread if so with the correct info.
