Steering Arm Help

Postby tmays » Thu Mar 14, 2013 9:48 pm

How do I go about replicating the tapered hole that the steering arm lock bolt goes into? Thanks

thomas , i do not know how a home shop would do that . maybe one of our cubbers with a machinist backround could think of a "home brewed" way to do it . coppersmythe.............................................

I believe George Willer had made a tapered reamer for that, but all of that requires a pretty good machine shop both to make the reamer with the original taper, and then making the hole at the correct angle. Unless ou intend to do it on a regular basis it is cheaper to buy another spindle. Many of the people on the site will have them. If the bolt is broken off in yours, just insert a punch in the hole on the back side and tap it out.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

PO replaced the tapered bolt with a large set screw. I needed to replace the arm. Set screw broke off. Looks like he may have drilled and tapped the spindle. So it's shot unless I do what he did and I'm not doing that. So off to the wanted section I go

I have a pair of spindles if you are interested. I can look them over this weekend to confirm their condition. There are photos somewhere but I am not at my computer. I can post them tonight...just let me know. Thanks!
