M16 Drag Link

by Roger List


Does anyone know what the length of the drag link should be on an M16? I am interested in the length from the outer end of the link (not to the center of the ball on the steering arm,) but to the very end of the shaft, to the center of the tie rod end on the pitman arm end. I had my link modified to accept a replacement tie rod end with about 2" of adjustment,and I would like to know what the original length was. I can adjust it by setting the wheels straight and centering the steering gear but I would like to know this to establish a starting point. The end had been replaced before by butt welding a tie rod end to it so I don't know if that was set at the proper length or not. If anyone is interested I'll post a photo of the modified shaft soon. Thanks.
