Yah, there are swivel balls for the Railco bushed type and then there are swivel balls for the pin and bearing type. Surprise!

And I am guessing there is no way to mix and match between the two? i.e., change the upper king pin to accommodate the different swivel ball?

As an update to my original post on this thread, My swivel pins were fine. The "looseness" was from the bearings needing to be tightened up ever so slightly.

Jeff,

I have a set of D1 ABS swivel balls that should work for you. Up for a straight up trade?

BTW you can wire-wheel the pitted areas and fill them with JB weld for a pretty good result.

From what I have read, I was under the impression that you can simply purchase the correct upper swivel pin, shims, etc. and replace...

I will shoot you an email off list but definitely interested. In the meantime, I am in the middle of JB welding one of the swivels to see how it works out. If it works out well then I will proceed to do the other too

I have read different articles and have come to no definitive conclusion. However, I do know that the swivel ball that uses the sleeve/needle bearing (the replacements I purchased) will not physically fit inside of the knuckle I have. It seems that the process of making them fit would cost more than simply buying a new set of swivel balls!

There seems to be some parts sharing with the vehicles with ABS, due to the larger diameter swivel pins required to allow the ABS sensor to fit down through it's center. The larger "solid" pins (vs hollow for ABS) seems to be shared with the '93 110's as the swivel balls have the same part numbers ('97 D90's & '93 D110's). Further research is needed for these parts as even the factory parts book isn't clear about pins for the '97 D90's (these do have the hollow upper swivel pins).

I dunno about anything, but I can say that when I just rebuilt the swivels on the RRC (railco type) there is no way you could put a bearing race in the top cz there's no bottom to catch it. It would just push right thru the hole. the Railco bush stays in place cz it has a shoulder.

that's correct...any the hole is also somewhere around .05" too small for the 606666 bearing race.
