So I am rebuilding my M-416 and got a new 3500 lb custom width axle from texas trailer. I burned my new spring pads on and painted up the axle. I also have new springs for the 416. I noticed the spring centering pin is too small for the center hole on the spring pad. Is there a place where I can order a custom centering pin. I suspect others here have run into this issue. I really dont want to have to weld the hole on the pad shut and drill it out to the right size. I also don't want to have to drill out the springs for a larger size pin (which I have seen others do),
Why not just drill out the spring pin hole on the perch? That seems easier to me.
