Pretty much gathered what I need to move along on Velma, our recently rescued '24. The two long brake rods are missing so I think I'll just make a pair. I found a set of the clevis gizmos so I just need to thread the ends of the rods and put them in place. My question is, "how long, threaded end to threaded end", should the brake rods be? FYI: I have found a good set of used tires, tubes, radiator cap, gas tank cap, and some other stuff. The brake rods are next. Thanks
From an earlier thread, quote from Dan Treace:
"All rods'09-'25 are same length. 54 1/8" overall from the tip of the yoke to the end of the threads on the cross shaft end."
For additional clarity - the OEM rods have a formed yoke at the rear and the threaded (cross shaft end) at the front.
Be sure to slide the brake rod support onto the rod before you thread on the front clevis, or you'll be taking it apart again!
Note that the rods for a '24 have some bends in them to clear the radius rods:
Originals are only threaded in the front. They were 54-1/8" from the split end to the end of the thread 09-25. You may have to bend a upset for the rear end where they cross the radius rods.
Thanks. Just what I needed. Velma and I are grateful.
