Default Re: Welding a bead on the stub axle

Thanks Brent,
That has all been done, new king pins or spindle bolts and new bushes were fitted by a local engineering company.
The bushes were reamed and not honed with the result that they are not perfect and I assume the guy that did the job did not think a close fit was that important, being an old car.
As I mentioned, I have seen a post here where slight play could be fixed by a weld on the spindles.
Much appreciated.
