here you can also see the frame bracing/box section


The drag link ends are '28-'34 Ford tie rod ends .
The shaft is 3/4" heavy wall tubing threaded to 11/16 by 24 tpi left hand and right hand threads

Note the "Canadian farmer steering wheel"

I think that's called a "tiller" wheel.

Also note the Canadian open car, full of Robertson fasteners. Beautiful work Les. Tom

Les, when I was about 15 a couple of hot rod guys in the neighborhood removed a steering wheel for some reason then decided they needed to go to the parts store for something. Off they went with the "Canadian farmer steering wheel". I was aghast but they got there and back, about 3 or 4 miles.

Do the 28-34 Ford tie rod ends look like the original style?

They're the same shape and dimensions. They are rougher surface. I guess they are cast ductile iron
