It only sat outside at the shop for 8 months. That couldn't have anything to do with maybe some broken rings from rust in the cylinders.

You can just replace the 2 outer ends. There's no need to swap steering boxes.

take a break, it'll go easier tomorrow. Me, Bob, Shaky, and Callahan spent about 3 hours fighting with the trans on the bus the first time we installed it. Just didn't want to go for some reason. I replaced the front mount about a month later and had to pull/install the whole thing by myself and was prepared for another battle, but it went back in with no problem. Somedays they go together easily, and somedays they are a pain.

You need to quit messing with this one anyways and focus on the ragtop fool!

ahhh, yeah I took the 67 axles out of mine, but Callahan and Bob took charge of putting the 68 axles in, while me and shaky were messing with the shiftrods, so I got to miss out on that fun.

Won't move up and down and around, or do you mean it won't spin?
