King Pin Removal


New Member
Is there an easier way to remove king pins? I've done this job once before on a 70 F100. It involved me beating on the old king pin and heating the housing. Is there an easier way than that? Is there a tool that can press it out or am I stuck on my back beating out the old ones. These are from a 66 F100 and look pretty much the same as the 70 did.
What I would suggest is soaking them with brand name penetrating oil. This stuff has really come a long way.I use it at work all the time.If you have access to a press and somebody to help hold the axle.I installed a set in a jeep and the guy parked it out side in a snowbank without greasing it first .Next year same story locked up.
