Hello, first post here. I’ve been benefitting from this community for a while and now I need help with something that I can’t find on the forum. I am replacing my steering gear and I had a really hard time getting the steering column off of the splines of the gear box during the removal of the old steering gear. Now I’m installing the new gear box and the install of the steering shaft has been one of the most physically challenging car repair tasks I’ve ever done. I have made progress in sliding it on with a ton of WD-40, but I just can’t get it on all the way. Before you ask, yes, I did align the flat spot on the splines with the flat spot on the connector. Is this normal? There a trick I’m unaware of?
