What is it ??

Recommended Posts

It might not be damaged.  Some can be taken apart.  I'm wondering if the hole on the opposite end of where the stud would stick out is for a cotter pin to lock the ball stud set screw and spring in place.   Some were rebuildable I believe.  Especially the earlier ones.   Much like some drag links were.

Oddly enough, the part # 2160 with different suffixes and prefixes is still used for many late model tie rod ends, like Moog and raybestos.

A picture from the end would answer the question as you would see if it's a bored cylinder or a split one like on a tie rod.

Remember too that in the old days everything was rebuildable.   I laugh when I see you could buy U joint caps and needle bearings separately.   It was the same with almost every part that could be taken apart on a car in the early days.   My guess is till a Tie rod end less the ball stud and retaining kit.  Might have been different by the type of car it fit.

That is true Randy. 34 Buick is the same as 34-36 8 cyl. Auburn, but the ball stud is taller.  I have rebuilt many of those.

How many you want?     Very typical of trucks/buses also cars, when we use to rebuild things.  The reason is the housing

is what takes the beating the ball stud is hardened.  Can't fall out because the ball stud goes through the bottom then a

spring, then a cap (like a freeze out plug) plus some are drilled for a cottor pin to capture the cap. Best to measure the

bore and measure the thread per inch & determine left or right threads.  I probably have 30 of those service kits for

9,000lb Rockwell axles...
