These came with some parts I just bought for one of my other machines. Does anyone know what they are or what they are for? Thanks.
Looks like pilots for a reamer set. The small diameters all appear to be the same.
I believe they are mandrels for the rod alignment fixture. They will allow the fixture to work for Fordson, Model A, and even Chevrolet, as well as other makes. I have the fixture and would love to have them if you decide to get rid of them ...
You are correct, one end on all of them are the same; 1 1/2". The other labeled ends range from 1 1/4" to 2 3/8". If they are reamer pilots I don't know how the smaller ones would work, not that I have a better guess.
That is definitely it, I had a feeling it was something like that, but I expect an expanding mandrel for most connecting rod checkers. The rest of this machine may still turn up so I dont think I will part with them quite yet, but I will be sure to let you know if I do. The gentleman I got them from was still going thru the stuff he salvaged from an old machine shop.
Ryan, keep your eyes open for the "sea lion" shown in the ad above. They are very hard to come by and are usually missing from the set.
Right behind Donnie, if you decide to peddle them and he doesn't take them - took me "years" to find the "sea lion" for mine !
