My 87 had a 5/8 hole diameter.

I guess I could just wait and not be anxious. I could actually cut the rod end off the old one and use it with the bolt for the new one, duh.

I am going to fiberglass and I am going to have to do the swap and deal with the rod length too. I was going to use the old one with threads and a insert in the middle like I saw on the one booster swap.

Holy Frelling Moly! I left skid marks... the first ones in a dozen years! I didn't hesitate to weld the hex sleeve to the boster shaft. I just put a narrow piece of tape on the shaft near the booster, and a vice grip in front of that on the shaft to absorb heat. The tape never showed signs of heat after the welding.

Willing to bet the wife would argue the no skid marks comment but I digress....

Not the sharpest bulb in the box....

Question:
Could you thread the rod and then use a union, instead of welding?

the rod is exactly .500" so you will need a die to fit that. I tried my 1/2" die but i couldnt get it started.

Don't worry about the welding, unless you don't weld, then worry about it a lot.

Not having a welder means you are perpetually figuring out the 2nd-best way to do almost every Jeep project.
