I guess I really should have updated this with the upgrade.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Default New arms Question

from what I am reading the aftermarket arm fit a 50;s F i spindle. For reference I have a couple F I axles squirl[ed away for future projects.
Tie rod problems like you described are usualy caused by not having the center lines correct, the tie rod can be bent and reshaped but the threaded portions should be on the same centerline , also when the arms are heated and bent the taper center lines should not be changed. I had that problem years ago when I used Olds spindles adapted to a ford tube axle.
