Smile Shackles

Hi All,

Hope everyone is having a great weekend, i am chasing a couple of shackles for my 1942 1 1/2 tonne truck. The part number is,

01T-5777

Would appreciate if anyone has a couple of NOS ones that they are willing to sell, i have contacted Fred and unfortunately he does not have any.

or if you have someone i could potentially contact that may have a couple it would be appreciated.

Cheers

Corey

Are your brackets bad? or do you just need new pins and bushings?

Thanks Bob,

Apparently these are impossible to find new, suggestion was to machine mine. I will look into this now if i cannot get new ones.

Thanks for the info

Cheers

No my brackets are flogged out, hole is oblong so i will need to build them back up and have them machined.

How about boring them out and installing a bushing.

Why not just buy good used ones. I found a bunch for sale when I googled it. Tons of guys with frames laying around.

Hey Guys,

Just thought i would update on the shackle saga, so i ended up milling out the hole and inserting a sleeve, then installed a bronze bush,. Was getting nowhere looking for a descent shackle. Attached a couple of pics.

Cheers

Corey

Agreed, great work. Our pal Charlie NY saved a pair of '32 shackles for me by doing the same.
