As E718 said, any auto parts store should be able to help you, if you take in the old one so they can get the appropriate measurements. I worked at a NAPA for 14 years, and being in a farm community, we frequently had to refer to the charts for tie rod ends, to find one by measurements. The measurements required are the minor and major diameters of the tapered part that goes into the steering arm, as well as the diameter and thread pitch of the large rod that threads into the tie rod adjusting sleeve and the length from the end of that large rod to the middle of the tapered rod. Remember, that there will be both left-hand and right-hand threads, where it threads into the toe-in adjusting sleeve. Unless Hagie has something really "off-the-wall", finding greaseable tie rod ends should be no problem. If you find a counterman who starts asking questions so that he can look it up in a computer, get a different counterman who knows how to use a printed catalog!!!
