I found this drag link while going through my parts, it is different from other drag links I have on the ends. The ends are not as robust as the others. Is this a 1909-1910 drag link or? It is 30-11/16 long. It is the rusty one on the left.

Ed - If you can find it via "keywords" or Google, or whatever, several years ago, Royce Peterson posted a very detailed thread that fully explained, complete with detailed dimensions, all of the various length drag links. As I recall, there were at least five different ones, and I firmly believe that there are quite a few "T's running around today with the WRONG drag link in them. FWIW,......harold

I saw that Harold, but it does not give a description of what the 09-10 drag links originally looked like, I haven't seen one like the one shown above before.

Ed, 1909-10 drag links have threaded ends which are fine thread. The 1911-12 have coarse threads. 1913 is the first fixed end style and the end is pinned to the rod.

I figure this one is an aftermarket, no pinning, seems like all one piece.

Here is the 1909 - 1910 drag link with 20 TPI fine thread on the adjuster at the steering column end:

Here is the 1911 - 12 version with coarse thread on the adjuster. The adjustment should actually be at the steering column end:

Oops - the 1910 photos don't show the drag link sorry!
