    That 64-67 stuff is getting hard to find. We don’t have anything here except for a pair of spindles…and I don’t think JJ want to sell them.

    Yea, it’s dumb! I have spindles all ready to go. Dude on the samba wants $80/ea for arms? That seems ridiculous to me.

    I think you better buy them. Ridiculous is $800 each. $80 is reasonable.

    If you have the early arms and late spindles why don’t you use the conversion bushings. I know that some new link pin kits used to come with a conversion bushing so the link pin kits would be universal for pre ’64 spindles and also the post ’64 style.   I know Nate at  WagensWest had quite a few months ago.  That’s where I got mine from.

    I didn’t know anyone was making such a thing. I’ll hit up Nate, thanks!

    Mr WideFive hooked me up with some sleeves, so I should be good to go!

    Great.  I forgot Wide 5 had those too.  Trick to installing them.  I don’t have a press so I used a bearing race installer to put mine in.  I left my spindles out in the sun for about an hour and stuck the sleeves in the freezer.  I smeared some grease on the spindles right before installation. They went in smooth for me.
