Great post, Jay!

Related topic to help educate a newbie :-) - has anyone done a back-to-back test with and without these devices and can comment on what if any real world benefits they provided?

I'd be interested in such research. I see Hassler shocks at just about every swap meet, so they must have been a very popular accessory. Either that or the same set of shocks keeps following me from swap meet to swap meet.

I have Hasslers on my '17. They offer a smoother ride but the effect on handling is evil. The additional pivot points allow the front end to get squirrelly under certain situations such as a washboard road in a curve.

I will be removing them some day. I like the ride and handling of a non - Hassler equipped Model T better.

Did Hassler only build shocks for Model T's or did they learn to expand to other makes?

My Hasslers are a 'pancake' style (not the usual 'beehive', - yes the castings are definitely 'front' not 'rear' axle.

Jay, Thanks for posting this information.

These brochures show that springs had different part numbers for different applications e.g. single/twin and front/rear, and Page 24 shows that these springs were originally color coded. I have springs that are different heights and diameters but no color coding (other than rust brown).

Does anyone know how to tell which springs are for single shocks and which are for double shocks? Maybe someone has original sets that could be measured and the results posted.

Thanks
