I am looking for what I believe is a spindle stop for a 1951 chevy 3100. I have one and I am missing the other. Where is the best place to locate one?
Might place a request in "Parts Wanted" forum. Plenty of bolters have lots of stuff laying around.
Please explain where the "spindle top" goes and what it does.
spindle stop . bolts to front axle when turning wheel the spindle hits it before hitting axle.
I agree with Forty-9. Ask around.
If not. Got a torch? Welder? Flat bar stock? I’d build one. Make sure it’s heavy duty. 😉
Parts manual list the stop: PN 365527 '41-'55 1/2 ton AL, BL , you can widen your search, or just make one. They bend easy so I doubt anything other then hardware store store steel is needed.
thanks guys. I think i will build one. probably easier than finding one. lol
Easier than bending would be to cut one out of a piece of thick angle iron or tube. If you lived in my neighbourhood, I would give you a hunk of 2" x 2" x 1/4" thick square tube; after cutting away most of it, you would be left with what you need.
Thanks Gord&Fran did not think of using tube steel excellent idea. I think I might have a piece laying around.
