I need you help. I was using my buddies taper bit on my pitman arm and broke it this weekend. I need to replace it quick. I seem to always break his crap. It is a 7/8 taper bit. Anybody have a place i can order two of them. One for him and one for me so i dont break his again. haha Thanks

The Ebay reamer above seems like the best deal.

Here are some other options that I found when looking for mine. The Snap-on unit is NOT a reamer- it is intended to be used by hand to clean up existing tapers. It WILL work but how well and for how long is the question. I was gonna use the $75 economy model fron BC Bronco untill I saw this thread. All the prices/ info are good as of last June.

TRE taper Reamer info.:

1.5" inch per 1 foot= 7.125 degrees=7 degrees 10minutes

FYI, here are some other specs I collected from the 'net:
· Big taper = .667-.776 (3/4 and one ton stuff with 7/8 -18, and ES375[

'67-'72 1/2ton & 3/4ton GMC] with 3/4-16 and dog-leg))
· Medium Taper = .636-.714 (moog ES150 with 3/4-16) FORD TRUCK F100/F250
61-65GMC TRUCK K1500/K2500 63-66
· Small taper (stock jeep XJ) = .531-.675

(there are quality differences, so shop appropriately)
BC Bronco $75/115
Afco # 80770 $120
Stock Car Products #R8201 $105
Goodson #TR-216-2 $80: http://www.goodson.com/store/templa...IID=4488&SID=5e498f813083aaa8c49cb1ea35162f15
Snap On # R121 $46.70

I could only find these suppliers online of such a reamer, obviously the Snap On model doesn't work well. This is where I found the info and has links to the mfg...
