Bonney54 Posted January 11, 2019 Share Posted January 11, 2019 Hello everyone, I am wet behind the ears to the this forum thing and looking for some help on finding parts. I apologize now if I posted this in the wrong place. We are in the middle of restoring a 57 b model and have been coming up high and dry on alot of parts. Watts mack pointed me in this direction, saying that some of you fine folks might be able to help me out. Right at this moment we are looking for kingpins, tie rod ends, and a solid drag link for a FA-522 steering axle. For the king pins I need a set that is around 7.97 in length and has bronze bushings in the top and bottom. My local mack dealer crossed a number to a stemco kit k533m but the pins are too wide at the top and wont fit through it the axle. Also the top bushing is a needle bearing instead of bronze. The new bottom bushing is a spiral screw in so thats ok. The pin is also about a half inch shy due to it coming with a thrust bearing that will not fit into my king pin nut. I'm about out of resources here. Everyone I talk to says they cant help. For the tie rod ends this truck has the early style that are female ends with a male tie bar. I was told they are rebuildable but can not find parts anywhere. Seems to be a pattern here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
