Re: Watts Linkage - 1955 Caribbean

It is easier to remove and replace the watts linkage with the axle not hanging so jack the car up and put jack stands under the axle. Unbolt the thing. See if you can jockey the parts back together. You do not want to replace the pin with a bolt as it has shoulders to maintain suitable spacing. You can drill and tap it to take a button head bolt or do as I do: Squeeze the two plates together til they are seated on the shoulder. Make two little tack welds on the edge of the pin and douse the thing with water before the rubber has a chance to cook.
