    The drivers side knuckle on my 60 is mucked up. the hole for the TRE is messed up.The guy I bought it from must have drove it with a bad TRE for ever. The hole is egg shaped. Any suggestions on how to repair it?????

    go highsteer or buy a dendenbear knuckle /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    seriously, you might be able to have it welded up and then reream it for the correct taper. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    You should be able to find a shop that can braze up the hole and then reream it to standard a TRE hole.

    You will probably find that histeer could be cheaper. Assuming you already have x-over.
