Re: Spring Bushings

Thanks for all the input.

I do not want to remove my spring pivots so I am going to weld them up to oversize and then give it a go at making the Arnold Read spring pivot sizer tool.

Here is a picture of what I am starting with.

Re: Spring Bushings

That looks like the perfect tool for the job!

Filing by hand seems like it would be almost impossible to get it completely round again.

Any info the tool or where the picture came from? Searching Perch tool does not result in anything useful that I found.

Thanks,
Dave

I made new hard maple sills and I am making new cross members. I drew the cross members in CAD and can lay them out in CAD on t...

88-A Platform Measurement Question

Hi,

Can anyone please tell me the spacing between the holes in the sill plates/bed strips on the 88-A platform?

A measurement of the spacing between each of the 11 bolts in the skid strips starting with #1 at the first cross member behind the cab.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave
