Made this magnet gap gauge last week. Others have done the same ... just my 'spin." The original piston pin has a brass bushing which I threaded to take a stainless probe. Bill Crosby made the bronze insert in the rod bearing area.

Mark;
Very nice! Great idea on the bushings in the rod and in the adjusting end. If I had a lathe at the time and if I had thought of it, I would/could have done the same thing. :-)

Those clamping collars look familiar - John Regan pinion bearing kit collars? :-)

Those collars are like the collars you can get at AC supply houses. They are used to lock bearings, pulleys and etc. on shafting in air handler units.

That's a great idea for sure!

Isn't that an "X" rod? Dave
