    Hi,

    I have to change the upper king pins in My 60. I know the allen head size is 7/8 but i havn't been able to find a source for the tool. Can anyone tell ware to get one or if the Dana Spicer tools are availiable (number given in online manual).

    Also, to get the 500-600 ft/lbs of tourque on the king pins can I simply make a 5 foot long braker bar and weld a socket at the end of it to attach the tourque wrench (set to 100 ft/lbs) ?

    Thanks
    Russ V
