As always Scott super nice work!

Now it is time to shovel snow? You moved way to close to Santa’s North Pole!

LOL

Thanks Hank

We just got 3-4 inches along with 45MPH winds. It appears to have all blown to Denver

Thanks, Dave

It was an interesting project and a natural variant to the kinpins I did a few weeks ago.

Good project. Those are definitely needed. Perhaps next winter you can add the spindle bolts! As far as I know they were used in 1915-16.

My unrestored May 1917 roadster originally had manhole cover oilers in the king pins and tie rod bolts.

However, the manhole covers are steel and not knurled.

I replaced the king pins and tie rod bolts because they were worn out but I still have them in my possession.
