Could everyone who has a 47-53 please confirm for me that their tie rod ends are either male or female. I just got a set and they are female ended. They aren’t even close on thread size ether. All the trucks I’ve ever had are all male ended. And I’m a little mad right now and want to make sure my information is correct before I lose my blank on someone.

Here’s what I’m dealing with.

Not a tie rod end. Maybe a drag link end?

Most of the male tie rod ends thread into a sleeve, which your new one looks to incorporate. The sleeve could be tossed and the female end screwed on to the tie rod. But if the thread size is wrong, I'd say you got the wrong ones. I'll check my truck when I get home.

The new one is female threaded the whole way down. My original tie rod is female ended. The tie rod end is male threaded.

I look forward to seeing what your truck has on it. I appreciate it, Kevin.

All the AD trucks I’ve had have had male threaded tie rod ends.

They sent you the wrong part. My tie rod ends look like your old one.

My ends are female threaded, but they're the old spring loaded type with the big screwdriver slot. Both the tie rod and drag link.
Here's a pic.

My 52’ 3100 has adjustable socket type ends and the steering arms have the ball mounted to it.

Interesting. LMC Truck has the tie rod and tie rod ends that are the same as the one's in Tim's link and as found on Kevin's truck.

BUT that is not what's on my truck. I have the tie rod ends and tie rod same as Fox has. Maybe Canadian truck were different in this case?

Or, maybe the tie-rod ends have been changed to readily available "sealed" and non-adjustable/non-serviceable units.

My guess is that many have been changed ("upgraded") over the past 60+ years?
