Bill;

Your tie-rod looks just fine; you cut the ends at a diagonal so the stress will not be concentrated at one point and added rosettes for good measure. Don't worry about it.

Sparky, the design looks to be in line with generally accepted practice and I wouldn't worry about that.
Check my PM for further suggestions.

Bite the bullet....get some longer steering arms, you could mock some up to work out how much longer.....those ones look a bit flimsy anyway grin grin

I used the same quickener in our liner.
Great minds think alike? Lol!
Those steering rods should be fine.
The silicon bronze filler was probably a good idea as the lower temps will have less effect on components than welding.

Do you have enough room for duplex chain and sprockets Sparky?
That way you can set the ratio that you want rather than what you get, you can also fine tune the ratio layer if you need.

Well I was up in the middle of the nignt so I went to the shop to set up the mill to drill the holes for the wheel studs.  drilled my test holes in a piece of 3/8 with the 9/16---probabaly will not work, not enough knurl bite --off to the shop today to buy the correct drill for the original studs..

Thanks for all of your feed back on the tie rods--this is what so great about this site there are folks that will usually end up on both sides and that gives one a HEADS up to rethink, reavaluate, and the one gets to make a "englightend" decision  lol  seriously thanks for the pros and cons  I feel confortable about our decision and especially about Marty skills who did the actual welding on this part!!

Sparky,
I used the Howe quickner box on my little modified street roadster, mounted it  backward to slow the steering down and probably have 5000 miles on it with no trouble.  I like the fact that you are putting the steering rod in the aero "shadow" of the front axle are you planning to do any other type of streamlining of the front axle and steering rod?

One way to eliminate concern about the welds on tie rods is to eliminate welds. How about 4140 quenched & tempered round bar. EZ to do. Call me.
