Re: Request for help with a repair
Making one would be a machine shop operation since the bushing is both keywayed and tapered.
I tried welding it with my small mig welder but it wouldn't hold. I've got it right now at a local weld shop for repair.
As far as the second part that broke, the control arm, I was able to make a replacement with scrap parts I had laying around. Not a copy of the original but I believe it will work.
Hopefully, within another week or so, I can have the old gal back up and running.
