Default 1940 Inner Fender Yoke

Where the yoke sets on the front crossmember does the spring for the mounting bolt go on top of the yoke or on the bottom side of the crossmember.

Top of the yoke. Also put a small piece of frame welting between the yoke and the cossmember to avoid squeaks.

Nut on bottom or top side.

The bolt comes up from the bottom. Thus, the spring, flat washer, slotted nut and cotter pin are all atop the fender brace. There is a small piece of what Ford termed 'anti-squeak' material between the brace and the cross member. Duck cloth, available at any fabric store is very close to the authentic material.

Thank you, appreciate the help. I forgot to take a picture when I removed the yoke thinking I would remember the sequence of how it came apart. CRS has kicked in 👍
