    Rx2 pitman issue

    Yesterday my pitman arm ball joint sheared off at the threads. I wanted to ask if anyone has had something like this rebuilt? I know buying a new pitman arm for a LHD Rx2 is impossible. Rare spares? Or someone similar. The early Rx2s had the smaller diameter ball joints on the pitman arm and tie rod ends which is gonna make this a pain to find. Do you think buying a RHD pitman arm and eliminating the little locater key in the splined area may work on a LHD car? Any help really appreciated. I checked the taper of it vs a tie rod end and the pitman arm taper is bigger.

    Hi Ozzy, are the arms the same as rx3/808? if so they come up on ebay and trade me every now and then, as for the key in the spline, i don't know that there is a difference between left and right drive as in i've never seen them listed as so.
    i can measure my one when i get home and i think i have a spare rolling around somewhere

    Apparently early RX-2 stuff is easier to find than later RX-2 stuff.

    There was a thread on it on Ausrotary years ago IIRC.

    Tried Rock Auto?

    Rare parts can rebuild mine for $200. A mate is gonna post me one he had spare for now. If that one looks alright I'll clean it up and use it.
