Hey folks, Does anyone out there have a kingpin reaming tool lying about for an early Bugeye Sprite with front drum brakes that they don't plan to use anymore and would like to sell? Please PM me.
Thanks!
Mike

Just send kingpins and spindles to Peter Caldwell at Worldwide Imports in Madison WI. He’ll ream king pins to fit, install the proper number of shins under the reunion. Last two times I had it done in and out of his shop and back to me in a few days and price far less than you’d pay for the reamer. A satisfied customer.

And while you’ve got it all
Apart, add Peter’s rebuilt better than new shocks. Will make all the difference in your front end rebuild.

You do know that Peter Caldwell at World Wide Imports in Madison WI provides a turnkey service to do just that. NFI just a very satisfied customer. Ship him the Kingpins, reasonable price as he can also set up with correct # of washers under the trunnions. Becomes a strictly bolt on setup then. I shipped UPS last time and he had kingpins back to me 5 days later.

Thank you Jim, but we do not provide that service for drum brake spindles, and there never was a single reamer like was made for the disc braked cars. You have to work with adjustable reamers..... not piloted ones.

Or take an old drum brake kingpin and make a reamer.
