Please identify these "helper" springs on my recently acquired '21 Coupe.
Well now that you are back from the TN hill tour, and up off the front of that running board.....
those shocks look like this style, there were several makes of spring lever shocks. Are some on the rear of the coupe too?
These popular H-D shocks, but the spring bracket is a bit different on yours, and the arm upper part seems a bit different too.
I have these H & D "shocks" on my '14.
I wonder if all of those aftermarket ever got around to thanking Henry for putting the world on wheels, so people would buy all those after market goodies ?
Thanks, guys. I should have mentioned these helpers are on all four wheels.
Rather than thank Henry, many of those thousands of small companies rather were sad at Henry for obsoleting the Model T in 1927.
The magazines in the twenties were so full of thousands of aftermarket parts for the T. Sears Roebuck also had a big catalog full of parts too. So many companies, and jobs, surviving on the Ford car.
Once heard a comment, while maybe un-true, sure seems a convincing argument to perhaps a part of the demise of the US economy. US market crash of 1929, that lead to worldwide depression, was in part, on the Ford car being obsoleted in 1927.
In the short span of less than two years, all those little companies, making those thousands of products for the Ford were shuttered. The lost of thousands of jobs, may have started sending the US economy in a spiral downward....just saying
