The large backing plate rear spring perch's are they the same for all models, I can't find a part number for them in any of the parts suppliers catalog, I have a damaged perch I would like to replace. It is fitted to a large backing plate Ruckstell.
Chris, as far as I know, all the large backing plate rear perches are the same. I have never seen either those or earlier rear perches in the catalogs.
Send me a PM if you need an idea on how to rebuilt damaged/worn perches.
Allan from down under.
There are lots of old useable ones around so they're not reproduced as far as I know. I have an old Chaffin's catalog near - they have pictures from the old Ford parts book.. it's 3843-B, same part for left and right hand side.
If noone PM's you offering a perch, then I'd guess any of the vendors would have extra used perches for sale - just call them.
An easy to find part. The late ones have a hole for the oiler, the early ones don't.
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The large backing plate rear is a 26-27 the spring perch is different it comes out straight from the backing plate housing. Ed
