Thanks George. I bought the 1" ends back to Northwestern Auto and they did find two new ends that had the correct size and thread (7/8-14). That is a real odd pitch for threads on a tie rod. Most are 16 or 18 TPI. My tie rod ends were the early take-a-part type that is evidently different than the later ones that you referred to (1"). The number on my new 7/8 tie rod ends are TP24. Anyway so that is one more item that is taken care of as ready my PA for touring.
I am continually amazed at the inventory that Northwestern Auto Supply has. It might be worth while for members to check with them for possible solutions to hard to find parts.
