This is a very neat spindle, uses T nut and washer, will drop front end way down, but for what car, thanks for information, Bob

They appear to be Overland 90 spindles. In the old days using Overland spindles in T speedsters was quite common. They give you a nice easy drop with no machine work. Overland spindles are a direct replacement for model t spindles.

In fact if you have a Overland 90 front axle it will fit right up to a T, even the perch holes line right up.

just sayin'

Not Ford spindles. The english drop frame Ford spindles looks lighter, more like standard US Ford spindles.
drop frame spindles and axles
In this picture, originally posted by ┼ke Ísterdahl, you can see Ford drop frame spindles on the two axles below. The top axle is a drop frame type while the spindle is of the US 26/27 type.

I've got a similar pair of spindles as in the top post - from Chevrolet or Overland perhaps?

I was going to say with that number on it I would be looking for a bowtie somewhere. Dan
