• 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.

Hi Steer

I am working on a SOA on my 76 sii. I have a set of flat top knuckles from an IH 8-lug disk front end. 2 questions;

1. Can I use these knuckles with my 5-lug hubs and stuff?

2. The steering arm is only on one side. The other side is flat top, but it's not drilled for an arm, instead it has the forged arm. The forged arm only has one mounting hole for the drag link/tre. Will this work with the stock sii drag link and tie rod?

Thanks.

These knuckles will work perfect. Send me your passenger side knuckle for machining and tapping of the hysteer arm. You will need a hysteer arm kit which I have several different kinds in stock. Best to call me and let me know your whole setup is so I can set you up with the proper arms.

Jeff, sorry it's been so long on this. Everything has been uphill seems like.

Anyway, I finally got the SOA done and with Chad's input, was finally able to get the z draglink hooked up so I can drive it. Now for histeer.

I would like to send you both knuckles. The ps needs to be machined and I can't get the arm off the ds. Also, I would like to have the forged arms removed so they're not sticking out there (if this step is really expensive, I can do it myself).

I will need to run the spacers under the new arms. I will run the two hole ps arm (for dl & tr), and the single hole arm on the ds (for tr only). I will need the dl and tr with 1 ton ends. I guess that's it.

Please pm or email a quote at your earliest convenience, and let me know an estimated turn-around time. Thanks a lot.
