pinto/mustang II tierod

I am using 71 pinto spindles and I am useing 89 mustang power steering rack in my 64 fairlane. The question I have is on the tierod ends the taper is larger then the hole in the spindles what do I use to make this larger hole to fit the ends. I thought about useing hym joints but I don't know if they would hole up for a street car the hole is only 7/16 now.

Your local machine shop can ream the hole larger. If you would rather DIY, get a reamer from Speedway. You want the 7 deg one.

Just one question Why are you using Pinto Spindles on a 64 Fairlaine?
Or did you do a suspension swap?

Thanks guys for the reply and I do have a mustang II type front under my Fairlane but it has 71 pinto spindles that was used for drag racing with a 71 pinto rack. I am changing to a 87 mustang power steering rack for the street and this is where I ran into the tierod end trouble.

Thanks Dave

Ok, I rather figured that was what had been done.

Willies 36 had the answer to your problem. If everything else hooks up either get a reamer and ream the holes to the proper taper and size or take them to a machine shop that can do the job. That would be a regular machine shop and not an automotive machine shop. Take a tie rod end along so that they can get the measurements. If you detect a "duh" factor go to a different machine shop.
For most shops it is a simple and quick job that will cost you a few bucks and you will be on your way.

I haven't found the machine shop around B'field that will do it for 'a few bucks'. Granted it is a quick and easy job but I found it was cheaper to buy the reamer and do it myself. And now I have a tool with which I can make as many tire rod holes as I want. Comes in really handy in my Mysterion clone project since Ed Roth used more than 20 tie rod ends in the chassis.
