Does anyone have a good extra spindle bolt reamer? Itís the first of many ďspecialĒ tools Iíll need in this journey I reckon. We have an adjustable that would work, but the right tool will work better! Thanks.

Tyler, I use an adjustable reamer, but you need the screw-on pilot and sleeve to keep the two bushing holes in alignment.

Hope this helps.

Allan, thank you for the tip. I figure there is probably a way to make a jig and a guide and make the adjustable work. But, for $93, I think Iíll just get the custom reamer. I have a feeling I will be using it again! Thanks Adam. Yes, I will take one. Sending you a PM.

Ray, adjustable reamers and their pilots are available for purchase here n Australia. The pilot is two pieces. A solid bar screws onto the thread at the end of the reamer,. A tubular sleeve with differing degrees of taper at each end, slides over the bar. These are all precision machined parts.

A one piece fixed reamer is probably quicker and easier to use, but there is no ability to allow for variances in components being fitted.

Scott's reamer is a good price. My only thought was that if you already have the reamer, the pilot may not be that much more.

Allan, Thanks for the description of the pilot for adjustable reamers. I haven't seen one before, but it made sense. I found a pic for anyone else who's curious. Bill

Allen,

Who makes the adjustable reamers and this pilot. Have done some looking into this very same topic with finding reamers manufactured in India, pieces of junk and China same ole garbage.

If the sell'em in Australia they must sell'em them in the USA.

Mark, nothing is ever simple. Like Allen said, "A one piece fixed reamer is probably quicker and easier to use, but there is no ability to allow for variances in components being fitted".

I am always looking for options. When fitting a new spindle bolt with new bushings as Mark states the tool he is referring to is the proper tool for the job. Also, fitting a good used spindle bolt with new bushings Allen's suggestion is a viable solution to that problem. Therefore, if at all possible the tools mentioned are of interest.

My method Is to align ream .001 under size and than roller burnish To size. I can hold a few ten thousands clearance because It Is adjustable. The material has a smoother finish, more accurate size and I can get the clearance I desire. Bill

John, here's my lot. They are all made by Sutton Tool nd Gauge in Australia. Not cheap, but your dollar is about Au 70 cents, so that helps.



This is the 1/2" one for kingpins. Note how the pilot screws on. It is run up to the nut with each adjustment of the reamer.
