Front lifting bracket

Recommended Posts


I decided to pull this bracket off so I could weld the hole to make it round again. I took out the set screw and was going to pull it off.HaHa that went over like a lead balloon,so i gave the set screw hole a good sot of PB Blaster and did that for a few days and tried it again this time I used a wedge and that was useless also,so now what can I do or am I missing something that I should be taking off to get this off? Thanks bgosh Stan

If you are referring to the lift arm on the end of the rock shaft, yes they are that tight.

I usually need a good puller, and a bearing separator helps.

Like Dan said.

Ideally a bearing separator and good puller. PB Blaster is good, but you might also have to add the "fire Wrench" to the equation. Heat out side of bracket, hit it with PB Blaster and let it get pulled into the joint. Repeat.

Then apply separator and Puller tightly. A big wack on the screw of the puller will usually break it loose.

All else fails grind or cut the barrel of the bracket, and get another one without oval hole.

I finally gave up on mine a few years ago. Got me a fine set of bearing splitters from the disposable tool store(Harbor Freight), used an old OTC puller that my Dad had used in his shop for years, added heat, beat the screw, and tore my fine set of bearing splitters to pieces. Mine was too close to the body, rubbed the sheet metal. It is now about 1/16" farther out, was all I could move it before the splitters became a pile of scrap

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
