Why is the locking pin for the pinion axle never available in the catalogs? We’re do I get one?

The pin that holds the pinion gears on has a small drift pin to keep it in place , I need the drift pin. Moss and Victoria have it listed as unavailable .

Any decent hardware store should stock a suitable spiral roll pin that should do the job.

About that little spring pin which holds the drift pin in the differential. It is 5/32 x 1".
The size was not stocked by any of the local hardware stores, so I ordered it from Grainger ($15 for a bag of 500).



I kept 10 and gave 490 to Robert Kirk, reach out to him and not only can he get all of your other parts, he can provide that too.
