OK... so I phoned a pile of local machine shops locally here... I explained that I needed some holes reamed out to 7* and all of them said due to liability they would not touch automotive parts..... so I phoned the only local automotice machine shop and they said no.... then I phoned a bunch or tool places and did not find a 7* reamer....


so now I need advice... what do I do??? where can I get this done or get a reamer???? Snap-on or mac have them???

thanks again guys!!!!

If you can not find one these guy's will be ale to help - this is where I got the one I have cost me $50 - they will send it out the day you call -
WFO Concepts 530 268 9494

I did not see any comments about how far to ream so either you know or are not thinking of it - So, if it is the didn't think of it - do not over ream it is easy to do the knuckles are really soft - so ream a little then fit the end in the hole, then ream a little more - go only as deep as you need to go until the nut goes on just far enough to get the couter pin in then stop - be sure not to over do it....

Yep, thats the plan... I am going to place the reamer in the side of the knuckle that already is tapered, then tape a line around the reamer were the knuckle is to give me a baseline....

thanks for all the tips!!! If I cant find one locally, I will be contacting people on this list by the end of the week

Cheers
