Not sure of the exact size. You may need to measure the ball joints with a caliper if you decide to use the pickle fork. I have used both a pickle fork and a ball joint remover as referenced in the previous post. The latter is a safer bet with regard to preventing tears in the ball joints and it is easier to use in tight spots.
Just for reference there are pickling fork attachments for air hammers if you have a compressor. Just saw one the other day at my local Sears.
JC Whiney have a couple of joint separators at a fraction of the cost of the IAP model. Buy them both and you will be able to separate ball joints and tie rod ends without damaging them.

Has anyone fitted an engine and gearbox to a 105 with at least the front half of the propshaft fitted. i'm contemplating trying this as fitting the bolts to the donut while lying on my back under the car is a pain ( i'm getting too old for it too ).
Here in Portugal we are under lockdown so opportunity to give the Spider a wash. It is a 1973 1600 Junior. All looks good now BUT horn started working whilst putting car back in the garage.The buttons on the steering wheel do not work now but the horn goes off by itself when manouvering the car...
I noticed that the 164 & 168 guys have a very active thread about what they've been up to, and I think us Spider guys and gals need to get with the program- so I'm gonna start and see what happens!
Today was a very good day! It was a beautiful warm, clear day in South Florida, and I'm sorry to...
