broken nylon pusher/puller rod
If that nylon flexible rod is what broke, then you can take it one step beyond what Willwren said.. drill out those rivets, clean it all up nice.. you can melt what'* left of the nylon as it is crimped into the metal, then carefully "uncrimp" the metal to accept a new nylon rod. McMaster-Carr (big supply house) has nylon rods, I can't remember the diameter of the rod you need, you'll have to measure it.. You can get a few rods for practically nothing, especially if you have a McMaster-Carr near you, just drop by and pick it up. Carefully cut to length and crimp it together, reassemble. A bit time consuming but fun as heck to repair these things better than new for a fraction of even a boneyard antenna. My Olds eighty-eight is running such a repaired unit, The one ear-marked for the bonny project has this, I have one on the shelf ready for whatever, just because I had the rod in stock and a broken antenna on the parts car, and my 1995 Olds eighty eight that I sold to a co-worker is about 4 years on this repair. Total cost for nylon rods, about 10 bucks - works out to 2.50 per antenna. Mike
