Anyone ever ordered a new screw on pilot for a ATI convereter?

Was using it on a 1.375 crank, but need to use converter on a 1970 460 with a 1.850 and a inner of 1.25. Have stepped pilot off conv. and it measures on the bigger step at 1.80 so if I cant get another I will have to turn it down in a lathe to about 1.245, this would make me have to get a bigger one later and I don't believe this inner step is supposed to be use , or atleast wasn't from factory this year.I suppose its concentric enough. If they sell them for less then a arm lol , I would rather just buy a 1.85 one to screw on and have both, thanks ..,ED

I bought one, its been quite a while ago, it fit really well and was well made. No problems with it, sold it after a while and never heard anything bad either.
I can't remember what it cost, but I don't remember it being too outrageous.
Hope it helps, I know it wasn't much

Big Broncos for life!

pilot

Got the 1.845 pilot but it was too long and bottomed out before pads touched about .200. Cut off and welded for stregth since left only one thread, Lincoln 1970 460 crank is differant i suppose. The inner hole was hammerd closed about .030 on the front from converter so i know it used the first big hole with a taper in front also.
