Mine has two flat irons, one is loose and one is welded to the engine side of the bone. How is that bolted to the engine if there is a ball on the other wishbone that is on top of the axle?

Your profile says 1912 T?
Some pictures of what you have would be useful. There were/are many variations of this theme. None of the original ones I have seen require welding.

I have a double wishbone set-up, nothing welded. I would if I could post photos, but my scanner is kaput. Perhaps I can get some reg photos and send along. It would be about 10-12 days to get copies back, and then send via snail-mail

I am not sure I understand your description. But the only ball is on the original above axel wishbone. The extra wishbone is clamped to the top one with several different style clamps.

There were many aftermarket ad ons to the early wishbone design in the attempt to strenghen it. Some were bolted on and some welded on. These are the extra supports that came on my '19 when I bought it....Michael Pawelek

Here's a link to five different period after market dual wishbones I posted here last year.

I have an original on my Town Car and a repo one on the Kamper

The bottom arms are not a late radius rod.

They are made out of 7/8" thick steel wall tubing. The end is flattened down and drilled for the perch bolt and the other cut to fit in the corner of the top radius rod.

Another style that did not go as far back on the upper wishbone is shown at:
