Idler Arm to Center Link fit
« on: July 23, 2016, 11:08:02 PM »
67 with PS. What type of fit should there be between the stud on the center link and the bushing on the Idler arm. loose, slip or light press?
Mine seems pretty sloppy. Is the bolt replaceable? Any source for a new one?

Light press would be my choice of the three.You can take them out ,which I have one during restoration however I am unaware of a substitute to replace a damaged one with other then from another center link. They are still so prevalent that it is easier to source a complete center link.
