Tie Rod thread size and dia

Does anyone know offhand what the thread size and diameter of the tie rod end
for a 86 Sami?
I am thinking about changing the rod ends to hiem joints.

Thanks
Wayne

Re: Tie Rod thread size and dia

I can check my spare. its in the back of the truck. I know the local stockcar shop has a wide variety of ends and
threaded tubing just for making race car tie rods, If you swap to Hiem's you may need to just drill out the
taper in the knuckles anyway. when I go to cross over steering to get rid of the Z-link I am going to use
the parts from the stock car place. good luck. If you need I can find the dia and pitch for you.

Hey Glenn,
That would be great if you could measure the thread pitch and diameter for me. Would save me a great deal of time, something
I don't seem to have enough of. I would like to have the hiems in place before Zookin in 2k!
I just sent the waiver in on Monday, you should have it in a few. See ya in September
Thanks
Wayne

Re: Tie Rod thread size and dia

here's what I was able to figure out. the ends that go into the knukle threaded part its 12M -20(The 20 on my
pitch guage) and the main part where you adjust the length of the tie rod is 19mm and 18 on the pitch guage.
I couldn't find a die that would fit so I had to measure that way. Don't know how much that will help.
If you go to a hiem joint you are going to have to make a whole new tierod arn't you? or are you trying
to get some that will fit? I really don't understand how you plan on doing it.
Let me know if you need anything else in the way of measurements.

Re: Tie Rod thread size and dia

Glenn,
Thanks for the measurements, I was originally thinking that I could change all
the rod ends on the stock zuki inner tie rod and drag link. As it turns out I can only change the tie rod end on the drivers side and the one at the pitman
arm on my Z link. So I think that this winter will be a good time to make all
new linkage for my steering so I can swap in hiem joints.

BTW - I'm all set for "Zookin in ZK"

Thanks
Wayne
