PS box swap, ran into a snag.

I am in the middle of swapping my leaking ps box and have an issue. I am in the middle of swapping my ps box and am having some issues. I have to lines and pitman arm removed and have taken the bolt out of the steering shaft connector but can't get it disconnected. Is the some secret? I can see that the is a split in the connector but it wouldn't make sense to try and spread that since it is splined. Any suggestions?

Watch your local thread for the answer.

Did you completly remove the pinch bolt from the stearing shaft or just loosen it? Sometimes you have to completly remove the bolt before it will slide off as it fits into a groove on the P.S. gearbox shaft.

Hope this helps.

I saw a post over there this morning but haven't been able respond yet. Hit it with some pb this morning and will get a screw driver in there later today.

Yes I did take the bolt completely out. Guess I am concerned with spinning the steering wheel since it didn't lock like I thought it did. Don't want to add anymore work. Thanks.

Don't spin that steering wheel! It has a flexible coiled electrical connector inside the hub at top called the clock spring that will tear off its connector if the wheel is turned too far.

No worries Jerry. That was why I originally asked the question because I didn't want to be replacing the clock spring and incurring all the cost that go with it. But it is all back together again and I didn't break more than I fixed.
