And what shop doesn't have a die grinder and vice?

Seems to me the shop is seriously lacking in basic tools.

Even if they would have to buy a new tool, charging the customer for a custom tool is far far less than labor time removing the gearbox.

In my case, taking off the steering gearbox was beneficial to inspect other components made accessible via the removal of the gearbox. Not all jobs focus on a single component that needs to be replaced, repaired, adjusted, etc.

It can be installed without any additional sealants.

The proof is in the application on the SD...........four years and not a drop of oil from this area.
Neither do I.

The Tech Manual has 615, 616, 617 Engines at 30 NM
I was not able to find the 617.95* Engineone

The Charts below are from the FSM. (Is there only 3 Bolts holding the 616 Housing?)

I used the 20-25 on 617.952 but did not have room to torque 2 of the Bolts so I replaced 2 of the Allen head Bolts with Hex Head bolts.
I was able to squeeze a 3/8" drive Beam Type Torque Wrench in there.

I can see why in one of the Posts the Mechanic removed the Steering Box. That way you have more room for the Torque Wrench and to remove the pieces of Old Gasket

Shops with vice are not uncommon; avoid them at all cost.

I'm probably going to remove the steering box to do it.
