Why not use a tapered pin instead of the drill rod.BillaVista said:Me love Bootie!
Because I was not re-using the stock Chevy tapered hole and split conical washer system for positive zero tolerance location of the steering arm (an excellent design, but requiring more expensive machining and the rob-you-blind Chevy hardware [see research page]), I needed another method for assuring a tight positive fit that won't loosen, develop play, and place dangerous shear loads on the bolts. The bolts alone are not sufficient since, in order to be able to fit the bolt in and out of the hole, there is too great a clearance between the OD of the bolt and the ID of the hole. remeber, the bolts are not for locating, just clamping.
