Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By joe gallagher on Wednesday, December 16, 2015 - 12:58 am:

can anyone tell me how to install front spring perches (left and right)...does the small center hole on the top of the perch go towards the rear of the car ??? .... also when installing rear spring perches 0n small drum rear axles how do you determine the position as there is no key way so it can be located at any angle ???.. Thanks for any help ... Joe Gallagher

On the front perch,the lathe hole goes toward rear of car. Your rear perches should align themselves as the rear spring is straight up an down,while the drive train is on an angle.I leave them slightly loose and then tighten and cotter them once spring is in the frame.

Just as pictured in the Model T Service Manual, which you should buy...
