Idler arm 1966 V8 with PS, help please!
I am redoing the front end on my 1966 V8 with power steering.
When it comes to the idler arm I am puzzled. Take a look at the picture attached. On the left is my brand new idler arm (from MU ref DA64M), and on the right is the old one. As you can see they do not look alike.
For a power steering car, MU recommends to change the stock bushing to BA64. I am going to do that.
As you can see, on the new idler arm the bushing is pressed downward, while it is pressed upward on the old arm. I looked at many pictures on the net and I could never find a consistency from one dealer to another.
What tells you the proper position of the bushing? Will it cause any problem if it is upside down?
