Re: Tie Rod Ends E200

Re: Tie Rod Ends E200

I have had excellent results using this little gem (Ball Joint Separator) from harbor freight to separate ALL of the steering parts. This thing was great. I would tighten it up then tap on the joint with a hammer, tighten a little more, repeat and then BANG the joints would come apart. MUCH better t...

Re: oil pan gasket

Let us know how it works out. I just put my cross member, motor mounts and engine in a couple of months ago. For installation the motor mounts bolt to the motor first and then you drop the motor with mounts onto the crossbar. So to remove the crossbar I would leave the motor mounts bolted to the mot...

Re: power steering pump

That is the power steering return hose connection point that goes to the valve. The threaded connection on the back is the pressure line going TO the valve. The other large (5/8" or 3/4") connection goes to the fill tube setup.

Re: 3 speed MT and Diff gear oils

I just researched this last month for my three speed top loader. I found Amsoil Synthetic Manual Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube SAE 75w-90 API GL-4 seemed to be the best I could find for a reasonable price. I think it was $15 per quart and I it took about 1.75 quarts. I am not sure if the sa...

Re: Can you adapt power steering from a '74 to a '72?

The fan pulley also needs to be smaller to clear the slightly larger pulley on the crank. The hoses are not all in stock at rock auto and no one seems to make a return hose that fits, I had to use an old hose for that. You should also relocate the oil filter since once the power steering pump is ins...

Re: Can you adapt power steering from a '74 to a '72?

Yes, all of the parts are interchangeable except for the link that connects to the tie rods. The tie rod ends for the E300 are larger than the E200 or E100 and therefore you need to get the correct arm. I know this because I just installed power steering on my E200 from an E300 that was in a junkyar...

Re: Missing Kickdown

Cool. The kickdown rod should work, but it's pretty rusted and weakened from rust. I am sure you could use it as a template to make another one, or perhaps I could measure it up and give you a drawing of it's dimensions so you can make your own.. it's a simple steel tube with pinched ends with holes...

Re: Missing Kickdown

Ok, I pulled the electronic gizmo and the linkage at the transmission, the nut over the center holds the linkage. https://s26.postimg.org/t9hzf4frt/Kickdown_at_Tranny.jpg At the carb you will need a clip (I lost the clip) or safety wire. Here's a picture of the carb linkage. The kickdown clips onto ...

Re: Missing Kickdown

There were NO sidelamp assemblies on the van. I did score the kickdown rod and the electronic gizmo that goes around the shaft that it connects to. Do you have the proper carb linkage to connect it at the carb? The stock carb in this van had a special linkage but the carb was locked up from corrosio...
