Can you do us a favor when you take photos of Parts for Sale -Take them on a blanket or something else as its Very distracting against a bunch of Gravel. I sure others would agree with me
Mark, do these have the thinner or fatter arms coming from the frame? And then for what years would these be appropriate?
Not certain. I know this style was used up until late 1920 production. Maybe an "expert" can chime in.
Starting in 1914 the brackets were made "thinner", especially where the truss rod bolts onto. Then in 1916 made even thinner, and used up until the stamped style. What is shown is definitely the "thinner/lighter" style.
Thanks for the education Tim!
Thanks Tim! Going through a pile of about 20 of them. Now I can sort for appropriate years.
Fred..if you have any with the thicker boss for the truss rod I'd be interested. PM me if you do.
Tim, I'm not trying to hijack this thread from Mark. I think there's at least one in the pile, but I probably won't get to look until Monday. If Mark has any for sale and wants to chime in, I would invite him to do so.
I only have the one set as listed above; however, thanks to Tim, I'll know the earlier style when I see it.
Fred...let me know. So often when dealing with the earlier types, it's catch 'em when you can, usually one at a time! I'll like to have a good pic of it naturally, but the fatter boss is usually pretty easily distinguished compared to the one's starting in '14. No rush.
It may help others to identify early ones if they check the end near the frame. The late ones like those shown in Mark's post are characterised by having cross section which is the same from top to bottom, like a diamond with rounded sides. The flashings from the forging process are at the top and bottom of the iron, indicating they are forged from the sides.
The earlier ones are much more pear shaped in cross section. In addition, the forge flashings at the frame end are on the sides of the arms, indicating that the forging dies came together from top to bottom.
That said, there are other differences, some of which are inconsistent.
Hope this helps.
