Star & Durant Reamers on Ebay

Ok Durantonians I have a question for you. There is a set of Star or Durant Reamers for sale now on Ebay. I think Bob has bid on them. What the heck are the for? what would you Ream?

Re: Star & Durant Reamers on Ebay

Hi Mike

Reamers are used to bring a brass bushing to the correct size.

When you press a bushing it will become misshappened and need to run a reamer into it to bring it to the correct size.

These would be used anywhere there is a bushing on our cars. King pins are an example, wrist pins would be another.

Those reamers have a pilot on them to align two bushings so when they are reamed they will be in perfect alignment. This is especially true for king pins or wrist pins.

Hope this brief explantation helps........
