Re: spindles

Later model spindles have larger (taller) bushings along with a different appearance. They will fit a Model A axle.

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

Re: '47 front gravel pan bumpers

'47 front gravel pan bumpers

Long ago I removed a couple front gravel pan supports from a '46 for use on my '47.

These pieces clamped to the bumper irons and had a rubber cushion that went against the bottom of the pan.

Yes, Lockheed is a double anchor design; while Bendix is a single anchor, self-energizing design.

Re: Posies Front Spring install 1937

I weld a piece of flat bar to each clamp so they just clear the crossmember when tightened. I also usually have to add a spacer (or washers) on the u-bolts so cotter pin hole comes out right.

Springs look like they are too long. From the appearance they look like springs for 12" brake. What's the part number?
