I just learned that there is a left and right front spring perch
I need a pair for my 1914 but Langs or the other suppliers do not list perches for this year. They only show 1919 to 1927.
Where can I buy an excellent set of these perches
Thanks
Garry Potter

If you plan on driving the car I would do one of two things for safety; use the newer perches with the under axle wishbone or use the over axle perches with a brace. There have been a number of cars that have had the front axle fold under using just the over axle wishbone. You can still use your 14 front axle, just change the spring perches and add the newer wishbone.

To tell the left and right of the early perch (early '19-09) with the wishbone hole above the axle, look at the wishbone bore. The 'counter-bore' hole should face the wishbone, or rear of the axle. The 'straight' side of that hole is for the nut, and is flat and faces outboard.

I'm pretty sure that by 1915 the bosses no longer had the center drilled hole. Ford had designed a special chuck for holding the perch while it was machined, so it was no longer mounted on centers.

I think that it was the other way around as far as the perch having a center boss on them. Early had no centering boss which was center drilled for turning. Near the end of the above axle wishbone they added the boss and the boss remained on the perch when they used a under the axle wishbone. That is if my memory is correct.
