Can anyone tell me a part number for the proper type of reamer I need? I know it needs to be 13/16 and the needle bearing has to be installed to support the reamer to do the job.  Taking a break from body work and getting the sub frames built up.

Aces,

I borrowed one from a friend, but it looked almost identical to this one.

He had drilled a hole in the end and tapped it to accept a bolt so it could be easily turned. Then he used some thick tape to match the inner diameter of the bearing to be used as a guide.

Sorry. The link in my first comment was all jacked up. Click the link and it should work now. Looks very similar to the one sold by fastenal. I deal a LOT with Fastenal and they are quality, but definitely one of the most expensive options out there. I've not used the sit eI linked to. It's just the lowest price I could find on the right specs.
