King Pin Tool Help

Recommended Posts

In the 49-51 Ford Shop Manual, Section 2 for Front Suspension gives the procedure for installing new king pin (or spindle bolt) bushings. Their procedure calls for Ford special tools 3052 for removing staking burrs for installing new expansion plugs, 3110-N for the spindle bolt remover and replacer, 3110-A for the spindle bushing expander, and 3110-G for the spindle bushing reamer. Well, I can't run down to my local autoparts and pick these items up. I doubt seriously if even the Ford dealerships stock these items anymore (could be wrong - Ford still has many twin I-beam on their trucks and Explorers). For those of you in this forum who've done this procedure a few times, what are good substitute tools for performing this procedure correctly? <BR>

Who said I could not find that tool after all these years? Well, I will have to admitt it was not in the tool box that I thought it was.<P>Jim~~~ The tool that I have is listed a a "Combined king bolt bushing reamer and driver". PN -5155 .814 inches<BR>cars V-8 1937-l951 Plus a bunch or other cars and trucks. Do you have a car or truck?<BR>Check to see if the .814 is the correct dimension.<BR>later-jac<P>

Hi Jac,<P>Measured the pin. It is exactly 13/16" or 0.8125". Your 0.814" tool would leave ~0.0015" clearance which is perfect.<P>My e-mail address is...<P> james.milling@control-soft.com<P>I am in Houston, Texas.<P>What city/state do you live in?<P>Regards,<P>Jim
