Does anyone have a front (suspension) pin that goes through the trunnion? I think the threads are marfed. and I am having an impossible time getting a nut on it. Stripped. I popped out and got a tap and die kit. Alas, the dies are M8 then M9. but I'm pretty sure this /pin/bolt thing is M8.8 so ...

The complete kit with bearings is only $20 at Mercato , look here. Don't know if anyone's selling just the pin. If your bearings are OK, but the new pin is loose, you'll probably have to put in the new bearings & that's a bit of a PIA ( penetrant+heat+ a lot of pounding in my case). Good luck.

update: Was looking for something else & turns out somebody does have just the pin.
These guys
have all kinds of odd, sometimes desparately needed, but hard to find parts.
