    I need to find 2 parts for my truck.

    1. transmission shifter linkage. The long rod that runs vertically down the fire wall. TH350 or 700R4.

    2. Drivers side D44 knuckle. I need to find a D44 drivers knuckle that was off a chevy so it has the 3 bolts for the steering arm. I need this local to make sure it matches my passenger knuckle that is off a Ford or Jeep. Thanks

    I may still have the shifter linkage off my truggy. You just need the part that goes from the column to the pivot?

    I bent the longrod that runs vertically down the firewall to the pivot point. If you still have it I have to drive to PV High School tomorrow night so i have to go right past your house to get there. What do you want for it? thanks

    I was at Jeff's ( bigyellowjimmy ) house tonight and he has a open-knuckle d44 ( drum brakes!? ) with flat top knuckles . It had 3 bolt drivers side for arm , and flat top pass. side. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif If you remove drum brakes and hubs shouldn't disc brake hubs fit, since its open knuckle?

    I believe the knuckle would be same since disc were offered in 1970, the year orf the truck it came on. He really needs em gone so I am sure he would pull em and measure for you. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    As long as the knuckle has the 6 stud spindle design, it should work. There are also 5 stud versions (read early 44 and ford).

    The thing I have to worry about is the tie rod. Does it enter from the top or bottom of the knuckle. If it is the bottom I am SOL. thanks

    Would they both be the same from side to side? All I really looked at was flattop pass knuckle, and it DID go through the top /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I just got an answer to my question if the knuckles are the same. Apparently the spindle bolt holes are clocked differently which makes them not work correctly for a disc setup, so on that note I will have to pass. thanks though, I appreciate it.

    No problem, but I always heard you could convert from drum to disc by simply bolting disc brake hubs on?? Maybe not. Good luck on your search.

    [/ QUOTE ] Does that just mean your backing plates would be in different position ?
