How do you separate the pitman arm from the drag link on 62 Lark?

I'm swapping the power steering for manual. I do not see how to separate the pitman from the drag link? Where is the bolt? How is it attached?

If you're inquiring about the center link - on the end of the tube is a large screw - you have to back that out and then the ball will come out of the link.

Take a look at my post about 1/2 way down this page...

In it you can see the centerlink and a on the end is a cotter pin - you need to take the cotter pin out, remove the screwed in plug so you take pressure of the springs and buckets, and then if you're removing the pitman and steering pump you should be able to lift them out of the socket they go into.

FYI - Don't be surprised if you end up needing to take the tie rod out as well - I've never removed the pitman / steering gear by itself so just a heads up.
