Question HELP-drop pitman arm

Does anyone have a chevy drop pitman arm that I can borrow for test fitting? I only need it for a couple of hours. I'd rather not buy one then find out it's an inch short. Something with 3-6" of drop. My sector shaft is the one w/four indexing splines.

Scott, I have a 4" dropped Pitman arm off a Saginaw steering sector. I don't know if it is what your are looking for, or not. you're welcome to borrow it

Thanx Shack & James. Adam just dropped one off to try. It should get me close to figuring out exactly what drop & length I need. One of those lessons learned things, make as much space as you can for this kind of stuff and then add more! I've got such a small window between the pumpkin and the arm at full stuff it makes figuring the correct length critical.

James, I'm curious how did you modify yours? Did you cut and reweld? What kind of process did you use, preheat, mig/tig, etc?
