I am in need of pictures and or description of how the seat backrest for an enclosed cab is fastened to the cab. Neither cab I bought had any apparent fasteners to attach the springs to the cab. I have scoured the internet looking for any picture that would provide a clue what holds the springs in place.
Both cabs have four 3/16” diameter holes in the center panel along with four sets of 3/16” holes that look like they could have been used to attach hinges. The lower set appears to be for an access door or panel that would cover the fuel tank similar to the one on my ’20 Touring. Did the truck cab originally have a dust panel under the seat spring? Any help and pictures would be greatly appreciated.
Hi William, I cannot help with your question but do have a set of three seat springs for the TT cab. I bought them from snyders and never used them. If interested, I can dig them out for pictures. Tmorsher@icloud.com
Tim, my second cab came with a new backrest spring and one used bench seat spring that seams to fit the seat frame okay. I think the backrest spring may not be correct and could be narrower than an original. Pictures with a few measurements would be a great help to determine if my springs are useable. Bill
Whaddyoo care how the #@! seat springs attach ? An old TT truck ain't good fer nuttin, cept fer pluggin' a ditch, mebbe. Just push it in and cover it up with dirt !
I will get them out for pics and measurements tomorrow. If you would like to send me a note so I can mail them to you privately , so we don't upset burger further.
There are two slots and two screw holes that attach the backrest springs. The springs have a pair of spring steel extensions on the top that slide into the slots and a pair of extensions with rings bent in them that are attached at the bottom with the screws, to the lower part of the panel.
Forgot to say, the slots are punched into the upper seam.
What upsets me is that I can't get mine to roll yet to get it to the ditch ! Hehehehe !
