37mm Reamer for front beam bushings
« on: November 28, 2014, 04:08:50 PM »
Anyone have a reamer for the front beam bushings in the Okanagan Valley area to lend or rent?
Installed new micarta bushings and the arms will not fit anymore.
I thought of sandpaper on a dowel but worried that I will not get a round hole.



Thanks

I ended up buying one from Acklands Grainger.

With my employee discount paid $68.

I am in the okanagan area if you need it. Worked great.

How did you find it for reaming the inner one? I ended up getting the factory tool which worked sweet. I'm not sure how you would be able to get the inners straight and true to the outer ones without a pilot like the OE tool.
