Hello,
Before I posted in the wanted section, I'm curious if anyone knows of a resource selling new spindles for my 1948 half-ton?
Getting ready to put king-pins in for the first time, and I have one spindle eligible for retirement.
Thanks
Steve

No one makes/sells reproduction spindles.

Make sure you the seller guarantees that the spindle is useable.

Or buy it cheap enough and take the risk yourself. Probably better to buy a whole axle, or find an unwanted one free.

I wouldn't expect many sellers to guarantee an old used part, or they might and it'll be an expensive used part.

Grigg, I was thinking the same idea on whether to just hunt down a whole new axle...
