Sae taper spline pitman arm

Sae taper spline pitman arm


I am currently trying to design a new pitman arm for a 1960's Facel vega.
i would have to design new pitman arm to fit to a rebuilt steering box.
does anyone have any dimensions on how to machine the 4/32 tapered splines?
any help would be greatly appreceated!!!


RE: Sae taper spline pitman arm

Plain tapers are in table 2 of J501, and splines are in table 1, but 4/32 tapered spline doesn't make much sense to me. How would a machine shop make the female part of a tapered spline at 100 units an hour? Can you post a picture?
