looking for a pitman arm

Hi everyone, So I am upgrading my front steering arms and I need/want to change my pitman arm from the standard defender one with the ball joint to the RR classic style pitman arm which is open and accepts a standard tie rod end from the drag link. Does anyone have one of these pitman arms and would be willing to sell it...????

thanks

RRC, that is the wrong one but I do appreciate the quick response. The one I am referring to is the tapered hole one, which on Atlantic is 160... So I am trying to find a used one for much less.

The later model Classics (92-95) have them too. I guess I am going to be calling all the local scrap yards!

SMOB, already tried them. Trevor is a great guy, they are now my main supplier of parts due to their customer service which they have given me.

XOMIGOD - that's the first time I've heard that Trevor hasn't a usual Rover part..

I have one on one of the legions of steering boxes kicking around in the barn. If you can wait for me to retrieve it, it's yours for stamps.

Any of the rover part out people will have one. You need the drag link too as it is a different length between the two set ups.

What do you plan to do about a steering damper?

Andrew, I have a RTE damper kit(less the damper) for sale. It will work with your RTC damper, too.

Brett, I wish I would have caught that earlier. I already got the relocation bracket and new drag link through rovertym.

I did actually end up finding a drop arm (after about 10 phone calls and a long time on the interenet) at a somewhat local scrap yard and just got it yesterday morning. But I greatly appreciate all the responses!

EDIT... I was looking for the thread showing a failure on a drop arm and found that Lucky8 has them for DIRT CHEAP.

http://www.lucky8llc.com/Products.aspx?ProductID=5831

Dood... get a new one. It's cheap insurance.

If you decide to re-build... IMO it's not worth the hassle...

the new pitman arm i need from rovers north is 160... that aint cheap when I can order one from England and get it sent here for cheaper than half of that. Its just a pitman arm too. Remove the rust and give it some paint and it's good to go!

A used one shouldn't have any rust because undoubtedly the power steering was leaking all over it. :D

I never mentioned RN... They do have a vast inventory and great customer support. I've purchased from them A LOT.

But for this part... I recommend going to a different vendor.

Did you check the link I mentioned on my previous post?

Justin at L8 has it for $33.

That works to your advantage when removing it.

But the effort in rebuilding it IMO it's more than the $33 a new one costs.

True you did not mention RN but I said for a price to show how expensive it is. The pitman arm you are showing is not the one I was looking for. I needed the one without the ball joint, rather the open tapered end which a standard tie rod end would fit in.

I just checked, since both my D90 and Disco have the "permanent lube of the pitman" feature, I think you are mistaking and this is not a "leak" but a well designed/engineered feature. On classic LR, it probably came standard, but I'm sure it'd be part of the HD package on a 2013 RR.
