Default F1 Pitman Arm 4.5"

Does anyone know where I can find a 4.5" pitman arm to fit a F1 steering box. The 6" doesn~t clear the split wishbones. The arm is splined on one end and a hole for tie rod. I have an original 6" ford pitman arm.

i think the '35-'36 arm is 5" long, and it will fit.

Dick,can you bend the arm you have to clear. A 4.5 arm would give slower stearing. I have a 6 arm with a F1 box and it steers perfect with a hoop arm on the spindle.
