Finally got back to work on my El Camino. Figured out the center link, it clears the frame. Though it looks like it won't fit, once bolted in it fits like a glove. Found that because the pitman arm rotates at a slight angle across the horizontal plane, the center link lifts slightly as it moves from rh to lh turn.

Got the tie rods in and roughly aligned the steering.
Had two zerks that wouldn't go in. I'll have to get replacement fittings and tap the holes.

I'll add pics to my journal later in the week. Tomorrow I hope to finish some of the engine bay wiring.
