  1. Our A100 is one odd duck! ( look at the thread about headboard tail gate, roll down back window) can anyone tell me if the pics show A100 power steering set up stuff or if it's adapted along with the 4 wheel drive stuff. I think we're going to pull these parts out and replace with manual steering parts , this pump cries in pain when turning the wheel and the end seal leaks on the assist piston, there also seems to be some extra slack in the selector just behind the pitman arm...too bad the replacement drag link is listed for almost $300!!!!! Any cheaper options or suggestions?
  2. I have not been able to find the correct tie rod ends for my 1931 Desoto and am now looking for someone to rebuild my existing ones. Does anyone have a source to buy or rebuild? In the process, I noticed that the drag link seems worn. With the tie rod removed, I noticed some play in the wheels, steering and drag link. I am not sure how much play there should be. It does state in my service manual that drag links can be adjusted. On both ends of the drag link there is a large slot for a large flat blade screw driver. The manual says to turn these in all the way and then back them off one and one half turns. I cannot turn these screws. Has anyone ever adjusted these? Are there any tricks to loosening this? Seems like the largest screw driver is not really a good fit. Please see attached photos. Also note on the last photo, the nut that attaches the drag link. I tried loosening that nut and it turns on the stud about a quarter of a turn and then is absolutely frozen and will not turn. I thought that I could remove the drag link and then work on the adjustment outside the vehicle. That is a failure also because I cannot remove the nut. I have also attached a photo of my tie rod ends, just in case anyone knows where I can get these or have them rebuilt. Thank you Nick
