Tapered Reamer

Flipping the steering over the knuckles requires either new knuckles or a tapered reamer. Fortunately for us, this isn’t our first time playing with these tie-rod ends and we had a tapered reamer on hand from Parts Mike. This is the company’s inexpensive reamer, and when we got it at least five reamings ago, the company told us to use WD-40 rather than expensive cutting fluid to lube it. So far so good. We haven’t chipped or dulled it in all that work, and it worked just fine here.
