OK another option: knowing that most full size pickups of the day used closed knuckle axles, and many of those were Dana built, have you looked into a steering arm from say a Ford? Dodge? IIRC you want to go crossover style rather than push pull correct? I believe all the Dodges were pushpull, but Ford tended to favor crossover.

I have asked about other brands, but so far no one has given me any feedback of an arm resembling the drawing I posted. Also, as I said, the arm I acquired years ago came from an ICH dealer, so I thought SOMEBODY would know which Binder it was built for.

Question for others... How was the steering set up on postal scouts? Is this maybe an arm from a rhd truck?

Maybe an M series?

Can anyone verify the material used to make the closed steering knuckle unit. Clearly it is a cast product, but is it steel of cast iron. I ask because I want to do some welded mods to it. A grind spark test is a bit inconclusive.

With the square bolt pattern on the bearing cap AND the closed knuckle steering system LONG obsolete, a trip to any salvage yard here in San Francisco Bay area is non-productive.

Closed knuckle isn't that obsolete. True the domestics haven't used it for decades but, Toyota used it till recently and IIRC Rover did too.
