I have a few NOS spring perches I want to sell. I need to know for sure the year and side. They have oiler holes, and are all the same side. I think they are right side but unsure. two are spoken for, so will have 3 left to sell. I could probably figure it out, but it is faster to just ask .. :-)

Have you heard the one about the fellow carrying a case of dynamite? When he dropped it, it exploded and blew away the entire left side of his body! It really hurt for a little while, but he is all right now.

They are all rights.
I usually just look at them from the side and visualize the fit and position. The problem with that is that there is just no good way to tell anyone else how to do that.
Early perches, however, are easy. The hole where the wishbone fits into it has a chamfer (angle cut) on one side. That side goes to the back, the chamfer is for the radius cut on the wishbone to fit into. The nut bolts down on the front and prefers a flatter surface.
Sometimes you can find one that has been cut or worn on the front side also, but that seems to be rare.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Thanks, I looked at them like you said you do, and decided they were all the right side, but just wanted to make sure I was thinking right. Thanks again ...
