Help! 74 F100 4X4 Cab Mounts?
I'm doing a frame up restoration of my 1974 F100 4X4 and have it prety much all apart. The cab and all the front clip is off the frame as is the engine, transmission transfer case etc.
The problem I'm having is that I can't get the 6 rubber cab and radiator support mounts apart. I bought some new urethane mounts to install, but they use the origional steel parts of the old mounts and I cannot get those !@#$@@%@% things off. I've followed the new mount manufacturers recomenddations as to how to remove them, but they are rusted, or frozen solid. I've beat on them with a single jack and punch but only one has come apart and now I'm afraid I may have ruined the others.
If anyone knows where I can get some new mounts, or how to remove the old ones without ruining them, I would love to hear about it.
