No wear or NOS I have some clips to go with them $50.00 includes shipping
The one on the left looks pitted. The one on the right looks like it has a pretty good "sway" to it that looks like wear.
If these have a Ford Script on them, have no pitting, and have no wear, I will take them. Let me know.
Adam, you and I think alike, but if the pits aren't too bad they will hold more oil!
The pits are very light could be a shadow on picture I don't feel any wear. Non script. $40.00 now.
Larry, I know you are being funny, but many of the people that read the classifieds and forum might believe that... I've even heard "experienced" machinists say that (usually to adios some substandard work out the door)!
If a journal of any sort is pitted, the percentage of pits (even if only a couple thousandths deep) equal that percentage, or more, of a reduction in bearing surface. Pits also prevent an adequate oil film from forming, which means metal to metal contact. (Maybe not a huge factor on shackles, but it does come "into play")
Pitted shackles would be just fine on a show car that sees 50-100 miles a year... They could provide adequate service for a decade or longer.
