Smaller Tie-rod Ends Needed

Posted by on January 26, 2009 at 20:27:20:

For my last race, I switched from 15" wire wheels with Dunlops to 13" alloys with Hoosiers (shorter & wider). I found that the wheels rubbed on the boots of the tie-rod ends to the point where another race weekend will wear them through.

My friend and long-time MG parts supplier Bob Ford at Brit-Tek searched all over & found Quinton Hazel ends that fit the tie rods. But, they are too small in the diameter of the taper for the steering arm. They are from a Spitfire.

I need to find ends that are smaller in diameter at the joint itself, but still have the 9/16" threaded end for the tie rods & taper from 0.514" to 0.565".

Anyone have any ideas?

BTW, what are these ends from? A Morgan?
