Anyone have hitch that bolts to worm gear housing?

Cool. Good luck. Put my name on the list if anyone has 2 they can part with.

We will probably find a chicken with teeth first.

Looks like something pretty easy to cast and machine, but expensive. A lot easier and cheaper to have a welder reconstruct a clone of.

Cool, now I want one. I could also make one like Terry said since I have extra end caps.

Ye of little faith....Sure it is a long shot. But I know there is one and I already have the chicken.

Iíve sort of been looking for one as well. There is another version that I would like but I donít have the picture handy. I would say I know where one is but canít get the owner to let it go. Yes to hens teeth if you want an original. As odd as it is I am guessing few know what it is if it was laying around. I am glad you asked just to see how the thread goes. Put me on the list that seems to be getting longer.

Tim, that is the one I have been looking for.

Oops, fat finger. Thanks Tom

Tim, if you would like more pictures let me know. This "hitch" is mine and is going on my TT. The differential bracket is separate from the hitch. The hitch is a Buttler Coupler made in Hesston, Kansas and the great grand son is a model T guy, so it adds "story" to my truck. The coupler itself is not hard to find but I have never seen another axle part. Jerry

Jerome, I see now what you mean. Similar to what Bob is asking for. Back to hens teeth. The pictures here I have saved so I am good. Will just keep looking. Thanks for sharing. TS

The top one that Bob posted could be made and would not require still more parts....aka the coupler. If someone were to cast these up how many here would be interested and what would be the upper limit on what you would pay?

Those are really neat, I'm thinking how great they would be great on my doodlebug and on the TT. I would love to see some cast up!

Jerome, I would certainly be interested in one, either one.

Jerome, you may have already asked the grand son if he has the the original molds but he maybe never looked? Erick

As far as I know Larry knows not were they went. I would of helped to get some made.

The top photograph in this thread is the hitch on my 1918 TT. I am in Scotland, so not handy to get a copy. It was made in Otley Yorkshire,pic of manufacturer taken in the 40s.

Trophy if I use a generational term. Just very cool period option. Thanks James.

By the way, it is interesting it was cast in the 40s for a 20 plus year old vehicle. Maybe that says the TT was not obsolete yet?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Tim Smith on Friday, January 05, 2018 - 08:16 pm:

Or the picture is from the 40s I guess. My misunderstanding.

I'm interested in procuring one for my TT. Thank you, Jack

I'd like one like the first picture in the this thread.
