    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?

    Hey there... I am brand new to the forum and someone mentioned that I should contact you regarding a heater core. Mine is a 1952 F-1. I haven't been able to find a heater core yet, any chance you have one that matches mine? I have a couple pictures of it posted in my thread I started 10-21-16 titled "and the new guy needs help..."
