Do I have the wrong frame bracket ? When trying to install the pitman arm on steering shaft the spark rod is to close to steering shaft. The end of spark rod keeps the pitman from seating on the taper of the steering shaft. The bushing in the bracket is 7/8" OD X 3/4" ID.
The quadrunt that your spark lever slides on might be bent towards the dash a little letting your rod to go to far down, I had that problem one time I sawed the end of the rod off just enough that cleared the pitman.
