I used a Snop-on R121 reamer to do my steering and it worked great. I did try to use it with cutting oil and it took forever. I decided I would probably never use it again and ran it dry with little wear and much better results. Once I ran it dry it cut like a hot knife through butter on two knuckles, a pitman, and a TRE. It only cost me $40 off the Snap-on truck and it's showing little wear after the reaming I used it for.TORC said:Don't waste your time or money on the Snap-on reamer. It's just not up to the task. It's worn out and doesn't cut worth a shit anymore and I didn't even get one tie-rod end reamed.
You should be ok. 5/8 is what I predrill holes to before reaming.SeanP said:thread hi jack.
I drilled my pitman arm to 5/8's when I was running heims. I am building a new steering using the 1 ton TRE's. Can I re-use my pitman or do I need a new one because 5/8's is too big?
