I picked up a pitman arm at Hershey (The one on the right) and when I got home, I realized it did not match the ones I have on my car, or the other one (on the left) I had in my parts inventory. What the heck does it go to? Does this fit a TT?
I'm just guessing, but the "improved car" has a lower frame in respect to the front axle (then have the earlier Ts). It would seem reasonable that the Pittman arms might be different.
John... I agree, but if you look in the parts books, it lists all pitman arms as the same from 09-27. So therein lies the confusion.
Maybe a Model N,R or S. What did they look like.
Seems like this topic has been visited before. I have several I've saved over the years but I cant remember if they have a Ford part no. on them.
I have one that has a slightly different angle but didn't think much about it. Its not as much as this one.
Scroll down to RV Anderson's post. Hope this helps.
One thing I haven't seen on this thread are any forging marks. That should indicate whether early or late? In addition, there were many companies making replacement parts for T's. Is it possible this pitman arm is one of them?
Thank you Gary... that is helpful.
Larry... The one on the left is marked "W". The one on the right with the steep angle is marked "Ford".
If the one on the left has the two axis dimensions of A = 2-27/32" and B = 4-1/2" as shown on RV Anderson's post, it is one I am looking for and would be interested in purchasing it from you if you are inclined to sell. Please call me if you are: 210-279-7864
Daniel.. That is the same one I have on my cars so I'll probably be keeping that as a spare.
So will the 'one size fits all' ones the vendors sell work on a 26 or 7?
Wonder if the vendors have had any complaints.
Hmmm, maybe the early torpedoes and runabouts were different. KGB
The drawing by R V Anderson is also on my Reserrection of a 1909 thread.
Iím on the road right now and canít upload the picture.
