• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

1974 Travelall control arm bushing

I am rebuilding the front suspension and steering on my 1974 Travelall 100 with the FA-5 front coil spring suspension. The only item I can not locate is the lower control arm bushing. The bolt is a 3/4” diameter, the outside diameter of the bushing is 1.69” and the overall length is around 3.3845”. I have tried IH Parts America, rare parts, and generic poly bushings by size with no luck.

Anybody know where I can buy these or is there an alternative?

Thanks

I ordered the bushings and unfortunately the ones listed for this vehicle did not fit. They looked correct but were a loose fit rather than a press fit. However, Errol in the parts area did some research and found another company that said they had a bushing that would fit. Great customer service when a company spends the time to do a parts search to send you to another company!

The part arrived today and fit perfectly. Even though Rare Parts does not have the part listed in their catalog for this vehicle (I even called them and they spent much time looking) the part came in a Rare Part package. The numbers are as follows:

Rare Parts
Diamond Series
RP16694
16694-2I47A
Control Arm Bushing (5)

Hope this helps somebody else with their 74-75 Travelall or pickup with the FA-5 front coil spring suspension
