Here are three different vintages of the Hudson repair arm. The thicker beefy set have a 1918 patent and the thinner set have a 1921 patent date. The single unit is also a heavy casting and only has "MOTOR SUPPORT ARM" printed on it and nothing else. Looks like they found out that the extra metal used in the first ones was not really needed.
