    This is ynot321AB1 and I FINALLY figured out how to delete the messages so I can now receive your private message about the carb that you have.

    Just saw your post on the Wiper Hole thread, I've been trying to figure out how to send a private PM but can't quite figure it out yet. I'd love to get one of those from you if possible, let me know the $$ and how to arrange payment. Appreciate your reply!

    I see, from a September 2016 post that you have a spare steering arm for 48-52 Ford F1 pickup. I'd like to find one, if possible, otherwise I can/shall repair mine. The area that is in need of repair is the tapered hole where the tie rod attaches. Apparently, at some point in time, the tie rod end got loose in the hole and wallowed it out to the extent that the tie rod end sticks up thru the hole and requires a spacer between the lockwasher and steering arm to tighten. Otherwise, the lockwasher goes against the shoulder of the tie rod end and the whole assembly just "spins" in the hole.

    I can repair it by turning a new tapered bushing, drilling out the hole and pressing in the new turned bushing, but a simpler route would simply be to find another steering arm. If you still have a spare, what do you want for it?
