Correct Idler Arm for 67
« on: March 26, 2011, 04:51:03 PM »
  For anybody out there looking for a CORRECT Idler Arm for a 67, this one is correct.  As some of you may know, most of them out there don't match up correctly.  I just received one of these, and it matches up perfectly to my old one.  Little more expensive, but if you want it right.

 Forgot to add, I know the picture don't look the same, but he explains that in his description.

Out of curiosity, what is the casting number on it? Will you post a picture or two so we can see what he's offering? Thanks.

 Maybe I miss stated.  This is not a NOS GM part, but it does line up perfectly for proper geometry.  I am attaching 2 pics., the new part is a little heavier casting.  The casting # on the new replacement is; 14  256    04.   My original part # is; 3908385  8  GMT.   I had a MOOG  K6099  which was listed as correct for my 67, it wasn't even close to matching up to the original.

Thanks for posting the comparison photos. A picture of the NOS one would be nice to see but I was mostly interested in seeing what the guy from ebay was actually selling. Thanks.

   Sorry that I haven't thought to do this earlier.  I now have pics. of this Idler Arm installed, and the geometry looks perfect.  I am posting pics..  I am very happy with this Idler Arm, the little hump on top even matches the Pitman Arm.
