I ordered a repair kit from langs #2691RB and have some questions,
What taper is the top bushing and what size thread is needed for the bottom bushing
And drill size., And if anyone have done this repair and can give me a picture of jig used to do the job- Thank you all ..Lorenzo
Originally, Stevens made a kit for installing the bushings similar to the ones you posted. They used a special tap. Dan Hatch maybe able to help you on that, as he makes the inserts, but I don't know if they are exactly the same as yours.
It would be great if new Stevens axle repair tools were available.
Dan Hatch, I believe has also made the tools.
Mike, did he make the complete tool or just the reaming fixture?
Above is an original Stevens tool . I think Dan had posted the tools and fixture here on the Forum or may have email me. Believe he had the reamer and tap along with some fixture. I bought some of the bushing shown at the top from him.
Guys: All I am making are the top reamer(tapered), the bottom reamer/tap and both inserts. Looked into the frames, not enough demand. I sometimes find frames but am out right now. Dan
The better way to look at this is where are you and are you close to someone with a jig? I've done three now for club members - maybe you are close to someone who will do it for a fair price.
