The drag link ties the pitman arm on the steering box to the left front spindle. By turning the steering wheel, you turn the left front wheel. Add the tie rod tube to run from the LF spindle to the RF and you turn both wheels. Never heard of "inner and outer" though.

Rack & pinion steering has inner and outer tie rod ends.

I just finished lubing my W22 but still have not found the Park Brake link/clevis the owner manual says to lube with chassis grease.

If anyone has found it, please post a picture.

My definition of inner and outer as applies from being in a position to lube the king pins. One fitting is "inner" or closer to where I am and the other fitting is outer or away from me. Simple terminology I thought. Possible leading or trailing might have been better.

Look up on the parking brake drum and you will see an assembly up there on the back of the drum. Just give a few sprays of a good quality lube on the moving parts. There isn't a grease fitting up there. 3 in 1 makes a nice product for the purpose.

Hey Ramblin, that was no dumb answer. That was GOOD info. My drag link must not be working right, because my MH does do a wheelie sometimes when I am drag racing and pop the clutch. I just can't stand it when those DP's try to pass me.

Case in point. These two coaches clearly have working drag links.

Absolutely ... an inner and an outer drag!

6.9 to be precise so we should be aware that the 5 Qt. plastic bottle of Mobile 1 (5W 30) is 5.1 Qts!
