Lift Road - Ramshaft Bolt Removal

Post by Captain_Sensible1 » Sun Apr 01, 2018 3:46 pm

This seems to be a very simple, possibly even a stupid question to ask, but is there a particular technique to use for removing the tapered bolt which attaches the 3pt linkage lift rod to the ram shaft on a DB 990 / 995 / 996? I've never removed one until yesterday. Trying to turn the head with a large socket & bar was enough to 'break' the taper & release one side, but the other side isn't being so helpful.

Any suggestions? Should I use a similar approach as you would when breaking the taper on a steering ball joint? Didn't want to start heating things until I'd asked others who had done it before.

Cheers,

Andy

Its a taper connection, as is a steering ball joint. The same removal techniques therefore applies.

Thanks Ollek,

I didn't want to start hitting things between two large hammers if that wasn't the right thing to do.

Cheers,

Andy

Put a spanner or socket on the bolt and apply pressure and hit arm with a hammer.
