Changing king pins in 05 CV713 Granite

Recommended Posts

hello all, this is my first time replacing king pins and i have a few questions. is there a special tool that is needed  to remove the threaded cap that holds the pin in from the bottom? i used a air hammer to break it loose.  also how do you set the adjustment of that nut? any help would be appreciated!

I'm sure Mack or snap-on sells a tool for this, I made my own years ago... Used an old tie rod nut with flat stock welded on. 6e602f38ae06964dc6c3bf7a99d85258.jpg

Is that like a drag link socket?   I used a piece of scrap and adjustable wrench.   This looks much better.....    Sorry to hijack thread.

Thank you guys, I did find a OTC socket but now I'm having an issuer breaking the nut loose. The socket tends to slip off. Lol going to try heating it on Monday and see if that helps. Any other suggestions?

 First try to spray some weasel piss and then take a 90 degree scribe and work the threads. Maybe it will come out then without an air setup. I had to air chisel mine out but after I cleaned it up I could screw the new one in by hand. not sure if your set up is like my 1988 rd model pins though.

I used an air hammer to loosen it but it's tearing the nut up pretty good
