A great find and a hard part to find
1909-13 tie rod end yoke
I have a few for sale 125.00 each plus 8.00 postage in the USA
This isn't an early part but it's nonetheless a somewhat rare one. According to Ford, it was used from December of '16 to October of '17. Before 12/16, the piece had a pronounced Y shape rather than the U shape on this piece; after 10/17 the bolt was moved 90 degrees and was then parallel to the road.
Tried to find the two I have to post a comparison photo but can't lay my hands on them at the moment.
Looks like they would be perfect for a speedster in building.
The piece advertised was used with the removable ball with the straight shank. It can be substituted for the earlier Y shaped yoke because the hole for the ball shaft works with a 3/8" x 24 tpi bolt.
T straight shank ball is 7/16" and will not fit, I see the difference now between u-shape and y-shape
I guess I got excited when I found these, the yoke than has no place for stud, or bolt is still a puzzle
here are some photos of what I found in this box, Bob
Wouldn't the yokes with no ball or clamping bolt be for the early, "fixed ball" tie rod ?
I'd sure be interested in a couple of those d.s. inner sleeves, if they're NOS !
If that yoke takes a 3/8 bolt, it's as R.V. says.
This is the piece for the early tie rods.
