These spindles came off of my 32. The previous owner started to install a steering box off of an early (50s) pick-up truck and traditional steering. I want to put in a Vega box w/cross over steering. I need to figure out if I can obtain different steering arms for these spindles or just purchase new ones. Actually same goes for axle since I can't seem to match the king pin size in any of my catalogs.

The king pin mics .075 Diameter, 6.250" over all length.

I don't have the specs with me, but, by eyeball measurement and "Geezer" brain they look like early Ford Econoline[/QUOTE]

Yup, they are. They're the second type, with the fat O-ring on the ends of the kingpins. I believe they went to that in '67(?). Earlier versions had threads in the spindle kingpin boss and had threaded caps with grease fittings over the kingpin ends.
