I stripped the paint off my engine skid to prep it for painting. And with the amount of moisture in the air I didn't want to leave it bare metal but I'm not ready to paint it yet as I want to move the hole for the oil drain. So I've got to get it up under the Jeep so I can mark where I need to cut for the new hole and then weld in a filler plate in the old hole.
It's done it's job once you look at some of the gouges in it.
Cleaned up and ready for some primer.
And some self etching primer for now so it doesn't rust.
OK for all of you who are more experienced than me. The tie rod is now doubled sheer so I was looking and wondering if I should build a bracket/tab to make this end double sheer also?
I don't see a way to make the end at the pitman arm double sheer but making something on the high steer arm shouldn't be that hard to do if it's a needed thing.
