track rod end help

In my quest to build a better mousetrap, I have come across a problem with the steering rack fitment..... or the track rod ends to be precise, I'm using a minor rack that has some beefy 5/8" track arms, with a 5/8 UNF thread, my problem is now, that I need to fit it all together..... it dosent, the Track Rod end tapers are too big for my steering arms so I now need to find a pair of TREs that are the right 5/8 thread and the right taper.... I'm not keen on having bespoke parts on consumables, what I need is below, can anybody help with that I need or is there a source that I can use to find what I need.

I suspect maybe triumph spitfire/ herald/ vitesse, but unsure of the rack thread, if it needed to be bigger then tr6 would be a good candidate. will look for a parts manual tomorrow

Donít think the Triumph items would be any good, it was a common mod to fit Triumph TREs to classic Miniís that had negative camber lower arms fitted due to the Triumph items being longer, Pretty certain classic Mini was never 5/8Ē UNF

Would it be possible to machine a couple of adaptors to go from 1/2" to 5/8" alternatively use rose joint track rod ends.
