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.

Although I'm in the UK, I have a US spec 1976 Spider Veloce 2000.
Unfortunately, the steering box has cracked and looks unrepairable.
I can get a replacement European LHD box, but the box that I have is different in that it has a Universal joint on the link between box and wheels.
My 94 Spider S4 developed a new problem. Ever since I pulled the dash pod to replace some dead bulbs the Tac starting jumping on acceleration. Idling no problem very steady. What would be the cause of this sudden problem?
Thanks In Advance for any trouble shooting suggestions.
Does anyone know of a source for the rubber ring in the VVT solenoid mount? The solenoid's female thread seems to be pressed into this and it is deteriorated and seems to be a source of a small oil leak while the engine is running.
I have heard that there was a bad batch of repro 2L oil pumps that were out there a few years ago. I got a new, unused oil pump with a batch of parts and trying to figure out if it might be from that lot.
Does anyone know the vendor or any markings that would identify such a pump?
