Some people had suggested a BMFH and a fork. But I had already separated the
tie rod from the joint. The problem is getting the tie rod end off the shaft.
Someone from another list suggested a pipe wrench instead of vice grips cause
the vice grips kept slipping off the shaft.  Well, that was a great
suggestion. Now I have grip but not enough muscle or leverage on the
adjustable wrench. SOOOOO I'm going to have to find a pipe to add leverage.  A
little more liquid wrench and another try tonight. It's getting late and I'm
tired. Oh well, such is the life of an MG owner. (-:
