1949-1954 chevy spindles

im fabbing up the steering on my 30 olds, and for simplicity, i was hoping to use a 49-54 chevy steering arm,
before i go and order the part, hoping it will work with my 30 olds axle,

can anyone tell me the distance between the top two holes on this particular spindle?

thanks
Brian

As a moderator I have watched this thread with interest

The 49 to 54 spindles used to be a real popular item in the Hot Rodding world......but the 37 to 48 Ford spindles have all but taken over now. The Ford spindles are so popular that they are being reproduced now.....

I am doing a reply to this question....in hopes that with a reply...it will be back at the top of the threads and maybe someone will have a answer. I have had many 49 to 54 Chevrolet spindles in the past.......but have not used them in the last 15 years or so....

Glad to help ya out. I use the Chevy spindles on the T Buckets. I like em better than the Ford spindles. I just find them easier to work with. They are a little harder to find though.
