Well this project has come to a complete standstill.
I would like to the thank the idiots at the sterling axle plant and ford for making a complete piece of junk.

I'm not sure how to sleeve something that is a friggin oval.



it is about 3" at the widest point, and a hair under 2 7/8 at the thinest.

Called alro steel and 2 7/8 .250 wall is gonna cost me around $100.

so I guess I need to find someone with a lathe and make some from the old d60 tube.

maybe I can make a 3" slug, wrap it in sandpaper and attach it to a drill and go to town!

if you can help, please let me know!
