58GreenMackB Posted July 13, 2017 Share Posted July 13, 2017 (edited) Hey all. Just wanted to give everyone an update on what all I am doing this summer. I found out the kingpins are bad on my 58' B model so I took the front end apart. The only issue I currently have is that the tie rod is slightly bent on one end. However, I think it is reusable if I cannot find one. Here's the vendors I used for parts: D & D Automobilia - They are recasting my steering wheel. Great to work with. Their attention to detail is amazing. rareparts.com - Rebuilding/Finding Replacements for my Tie Rods. Hust Brothers - Brake Shoe Relining Greensburg Machine - Spring Rebuild/King Pin Installation (Local Company) Watt's For Everything In-between NAPA - NCP 2621571 - King Pins (Have to research this for an FA505) Okay so my question is has anyone removed the pins out of the springs? I see there is a bolt that retains the pins. Any tips or tricks on how to get them out of there? The FA505 axle will be removed before I attempt to remove the springs. As always, I appreciate everyone's input. Edited July 13, 2017 by 58GreenMackB 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
