I am looking for some Thomas changer rods if anyone has some. I need 24" and longer and have a slot in the bellcrank end for a cotter pin. Would take some shorter ones also. These rods are smaller in diameter than shobud or msa. thanks Winston May

That is standard 3/32" rods used by many builders. When I re-rodded my Carter, I bought 3/32" stainless welding rod through Amazon. You might visit some local welding shops and see what they have. You could also try Michael Yahl at psgparts.com . Or even some of the current builders and see if they will sell you some. You will probably have to drill and tap them yourself.

I got enough to re-rod my D10 Carter for around $10. This is what I got.
