    King Pins

    HI,

    Does anyone know where I can get a set of king pins with brass bushings instead of nylon for my '69?

    Thanks!

    King Pins

    I bought my brass set from "Rare Parts"
    P/N RP30418 details:
    Brass Bushings-
    Length: 1.260", OD: 0.940"
    Pin- Ø 0.816" x 5.389" L
    Thickness: 0.532", Width Of Keyway: 0.458

    FYI here is my list of pins

    King Pin Set GM 3854004: M-2314, Dayton 300-169, GM 3928439, Moog 8494B, Moog 8494N, Flagg FKP41B, Flagg FKP41N, TRW K502, TRW K502B, KA251, KA251T.

    Looks like the "B" suffix is for brass i.e.
    AFFINIA KA318 (Brass)
    Moog 8494B (Brass)
    Flagg FKP41B
    TRW K502B

    64-70 same parts

    FYI - I bought a 15/16" hand reamer to get the brass bushings to have proper fit.

    I had them done - cost me $925 - the shop took weeks to find the metal bushings.

    I paid $500 in 2008. Adjusting for whatever...a thou sounds about right.

    ALWAYS ask here for parts. Shops dont have a clue where to find parts for earlies.
