WTB: Front Axle Spring Perch for 1913 Passenger Side

Post by Darren J Wallace » Fri Jan 11, 2019 5:19 pm

Title says it all, looking for a correct one that is in decent shape. This is the one with the wishbone hole above the axle. Many thanks in advance!

Darren, do you mean the right side? I may also have one, but Chris is closer.

Hi Allan, Yes, if you're looking at the front of the car from out in front of the car, and looking at the left side, that's the spring perch I need.
To add to the confusion, my car has Hassler shocks on it so in order to use them, both the spring perches must be turned around 180 degrees, and then the entire axle has to be turned around as well so the angle for the axle's camber is correct. So in my case, the passenger side spring perch is in fact on the driver's side. :)

Darren, there's no confusion if you stick to left or right side. US cars are left hand drive, i.e. the steering wheel is on the left side. They do not become RHD when you look at the car from the front, or the side for that matter.

Hope this avoids confusion.

You don't turn the axle you swap the perches as well as turn them. It is the perches that set the angle not the axle. If you turn the axle you also have to swap the spindles.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :roll:
