Post by: may17 on May 10, 2016, 05:26:22 PM
Located in Wisconsin north of Milwaukee about 50 miles Project started as a steering boot replacement and turned into a  now that I am here I may as well ? Adding new A arms bushings, wheel bearings etc.  My king pins and bushings are worn and I have a new set of king pins and bushings. I need somebody that can ream the bushings properly. Anybody have any ideas, I know I can buy a new reamer but this is a one time project I hope. Jed Krieger, ironwingforge@Gmail.com or 262- 689- 9065 summer is almost here and my baby does not work.

We just did the same! Find a good machinist to do the kingpins. The upshot is that you will a completely different car once you've gotten this out of the way. You can also buy a machined set, but they are considerably more expensive.
