my mind says this kingpin is dead
Edit : updated pic
you could prolly get a speedy sleeve on those spindles but that king pin is dead!
Who'd you bury?
Looks like a shallow grave next to the K5!
I'd say the spindle is useable,I've had worse that a bearing spun on,and I still got away with using it,yours dont look too bad...but I dont see any kingpins in the pictures- --what kingpin??...
yea the yard is really small ..
If it hasn't worn a crove just take a punch and swell the metal.
2nd pic is kingpin, yeah it's dead!
I don't see a kingpin?
Could someone clarify:
a. what a kingpin is.
b. draw little arrows pointing to where the kingpin is.
(Im not being sarcastic, im really confused). I thought the pictures were referring to a scored/worn out outer that may not be able to seat a new bearing.
sh#t sorry it was the 3rd pic not 2nd it sits on top of the "C' at end of axle tube. the cone shaped part that it pitted. i have heard the d60 is not a true kingpin setup not sure why, never worked them till the 60. but the cone shaped part is the "kingpin" in question.
third pic is an aerial view of a truck?
not sure what you are seeing but i don't see no truck just spindles and a kingpin!
lol I see it to, first 2 pics are of the spindal and the last is a overhead shot of a truck with a light bar on its top.
I'm guessing by your location that a replacement would be hard to come by. I would clean it up with some very fine sandpaper and run it.
lol my pictures is messed up ..should work now..
I know that Ord has new spindles , but if i can use the old ones i'm happy..
could i use some steel wool to clean em up?
here is that kingpin: http://memimage.cardomain.net/member_images/1/web/445000-445999/445508_8_full.jpg
even if you had a really bad spun bearing that ground a .03 or even a little deeper, as long as the heat from the damage didnt fatigue the spindle it is repairable. we do hitech super hard coatings at the shop I work at. I fixed both my d60 spindles cause they had spun a bit. the coating we used is so hard it will never wear out. boeing aircraft did a 6 month distructive test on this coating, they subjected it to all kinds of acids, corosive chemicalls, salt baths, extreem cold, and heat grit blasting, you name it they threw it at it. they could not find any measureable wear down to the ten thousanth of an inch, thats .0001 for those who dont know. the coating expert here said he didnt need to put that particular coating on my spindals, but since they were spraying a job with that coating at the time he told the sprayer do spray the spindals too. reguler steel or stainless steel would have been fine to use for my aplication.
Uh, maybe if you kept the greased and adjusted you wouldn't need to know that.
maybe he just bought it!! i recently inherited the same issues from a previous owner.
