I'm getting ready to rebuild the Ross box on my V6 Cj-5. I know, I know, I should go to Saginaw, but the Jeep is too original to chop up. I've got my CJ-2 for that. After looking at various threads here and there, I'm wondering if there is any consensus on dealing with the Pins. The options I've seen are: Buying a new shaft from e-bay: SECTOR SHAFT 15/16 807478 Fits Ross Steering Box M38A1 M170 V6 CJ5 G758 | eBay. I worry about the quality of likely made-in-China parts. Especially in my steering and especially after reading about a batch of 4-cyl reproduction shafts that fractured leaving no steering control at all. Grinding the swedges off the back of the existing pins, pressing them out, rotating them, pressing them back in and welding where the swedge used to be. This seems like a good and cheap solution, but it's unclear if welding the part will cause issue with heat treatment or cracking. Heating the swedge until red-hot and turning the pins with vice grips. Again, it's unclear what the effects of the heating on the part will be. Using John Deere pins. Ideally you could swedge them in place, but I'm not sure I can do that. Perhaps heating red hot and using an air hammer with a flat head? If not, welding the back side? It's also not clear the John Deere parts are dimensionally correct. I've only found speculation they would work, but not anybody having actually used them. I'd like to hear what's worked well for others or any reasons to cross some choices off the list.
