Default '34 Front radius rod ball caps

Are the ball diameters, top & bottom caps the same for Model A through early V8 or are they different ? Thank you Fordbarners.

As I recall, at least some the Model A bottom caps were cast steel, whereas the V8 era caps were stampings. Further, no rubber ball bushing was used on Model As, which suggests that the caps were smaller in their inside diameter. There was no top cap used in the V8 era as the recess for the ball and its rubber bushing was stamped into the center cross member.
