Default Question for Rob Love......

Tie Rod Ends........ made of "unobtenium"

.....our in house parts guru who as connections with current army trucks....

Hi Rob

Looking for suitable tie rod ends for our CMPs...... hopefully something that fits the existing rod thread without expensive machining and strong enough for an over built CMP.....

I got some M9XX or M8XX series 5ton truck: NSN 2530-00-303-4923 LH
and......M9XX or M8XX series 5ton truck: NSN 2530-00-211-6111 RH

do we ever use anything like that in Canada...... apparently Eastern Surplus as them...... from the web pictures they look very similar...but are they the "same"????

I am going to take one tie rod part, some model on early CMP were rebuildable....... take pictures and measure the taper, thread size etc.

Meanwhile I will be blowing some of the forecasted 30 cm. of wet heavy white s**t overnight.

Anybody else crossed that "unobtanium" tie rod bridge please chime in....

Hoping that the results my be helpful to other shaky CMP owners!!!

PS Here are photos of my tie rod end and one that I bought out of curiosity listed as fitting a GMC 1947 to 54 HD truck....... looks like a midget and now will be a nice paper weight.......
