Remove the frame side dirt shield using a
gasket scraper. Some steering gears may
have a screw-in dust shield. Use 1/4" allen
wrench to remove screw-in dirt shields.
Using a center punch, make two reference
marks on the bearing cap and corresponding
marks on the housing. A single reference
mark should be made on the cylinder head
and a corresponding mark on the housing, so
the gear can be reassembled in the same
configuration (Figure 87).
M E TA L FROM THE PUNCH OR
HOUSING CAN INJURE AN EYE.
Remove the relief valve plungers from both
ends of the gear. This will protect them
from damage during repair (Figure 88).
