I purchased a bunch of spare parts about 4 years ago, front axle complete with 1912 wheels, BUT today l decided that the spindles looked ok to come off and go into the spare parts box... just in case ...
The passenger side ( RHS ) spindle has part # 203.4 ED and a ford logo on the other side.
The axle has the ford brand front and back with ED next to it, but has that W in a sort of multi layered rectangle box around it right in the middle on one side only ... and a 5 both sides.
The parts were purchased just south of Geelong- Victoria Australia, so l am going to guess this was a Canadian origin chassis.
The axle its self - seems to look more sturdy/heavier/more solid that that of my 2# 13's and 26 Tudor axles.
It has the pointy pyramid shape on both outer edges, so its certainly earlier than 1926.
I'll post a pic when l work out how to get it out of this damn phone/...
Trans Sue Williams had a mark like that.
Any idea what years from to ???
Here is a roughy pic of it .... bugga its upside down now...
I started a Forum thread in 2010 regarding that M on our Fordor's front axle. I think that the general consensus was that it is an aftermarket axle by Western Auto.
Here is the link to that thread. Regards, John
The Transue-Williams mark is a T and W superimposed over each other, surrounded by a triangle. The one pictured above is something very different, but I don't know what. Maybe it was aftermarket, or maybe it was just a different supplier to Ford.
Here is the picture of my front axle . JP.
The Windsor Auto company - Canada...
I have one of these on my '26.
