His is 1.12" (1-1/8"?)
This is what they look like in general

Joe, for what it's worth, I did not find a local machine shop to ream mine either, but I did find an independent alignment shop that had the equipment and knew how to do it. I dropped off the spindles, new bushings, and pins and they were a perfect fit the next day!

Wow! Thanks for the replies fellas. I've never seen any of those types of reamers.

So the bushings are removed first, new bushings pressed in, and then both reamed in the same action to keep them lined up properly. Makes sense to me.

Reamers

On the adjustable reamer the cone goes in the bottom to center the reamer, you set the adjustment to the correct size with the upper & lower nut and then feed the reamer down through the bushing.

Well, I've searched the web for a reamer in 1.129 size (the spec is 1.129 to 1.131). I mic'ed my new pins, and they're 1.129 just like Ross said. I haven't found a reamer that size, adjustable or otherwise.

On another note, we had the granddaughters over for a while this morning so I got them all in the cab with me. It's a tight fit, and the littlest wasn't happy after a short while (which I kinda expected).

So, when I was mounting the flag holders to the bed, I also secured two chairs back there. One is for my son and the other for a granddaughter to be named later. Probably the 3 year old. We can strap her car seat to the chair if needed.

Then, of course I had to test drive to check the security of said chairs. I continued the drive until I hit a milestone. No vehicles were damaged in the hitting of this milestone.

Click the image to open in full size.

I tried to get a pic just as the odometer turned, but that's gotta be as unsafe as texting while driving. She had 25,720 on there when I got her in July, 2011. Of course the speedo cable was broken, so I have no idea what the true mileage is. Not exactly a daily driver, eh? Haven't quite caught up to Ross and his wild adventures to and from Truckstock.

To be honest Joe, I worry about the little ones in the cab or elsewhere -- be safe!!

They won't be in the truck without seat belts until the parade starts. And then, if I hit 5 mph it will be unlike last year. I want to have the 10 year old next to the door, and she has enough sense not to open the door!

If one is strapped into a chair on the bed, her daddy will be watching her. I think we're good, but I understand your concerns.

Joe, I'd be happy to loan you my reamer, but it's not quite big enough......only goes to 1.125".
Surely there is a shop in your area that can do the job?

My son knows a guy. He's going to check with him for me to see if he has one big enough.

Just a suggestion - you might try some local hotrod/custom places and/or people. They may be able to recommend a machine shop to do the work.

A local NAPA said they could do mine, but wanted 3 hours of shop time to do it. With the help of a mechanic friend, I found a local machine shop that was able to do it for $40.

Your bushings are on the small size for a shop that does semis, check with one of them.

All good ideas guys. Thanks. I'll be checking on this soon. Unfortunately, I have to go back to work tomorrow.
