I have one like the bottom two. It has a Ford arm installed for the speedometer setup. The spindle isn't Ford, note that area where the outer bearing rides is not threaded and takes a lock washer with wider tab. Mine does not have the grease fitting. It was suggested that they might be Chevrolet.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :roll:

Notice the flats on them and offset arms;
Early 1922 Parts Lists show spindles with integral arms (one piece). These were described in a letter to the branches dated February 2, 1922:

T280C Spindle assembly, R
T281C Spindle assembly, L

“Starting Feb 6th we will begin making shipments of the above assemblies. The T-280C will eliminate the use of T280B spindle body, T7715B spindle arm, T77 nut, and T82 cotter. The T281C will eliminate the use of T281B spindle body, T7716B spindle arm, T77 nut, and T82 cotter. For some time you will receive both types… We will advise when full production will be new style.”

Then on another letter, dated May 17, 1922, the following”
“We have temporarily discontinued the manufacture of T278D and T279D, spindle assembly right and left. Therefore do not order any more until you are notified to do so. The above assemblies may be replaced with the T280 and T281 spindle bodies and the T7715B and T7716B arms.”

(T280 and T281 are spindles without the bearing cones, T278 and T279 are the same parts with the bearing cones. The one-piece type were never used again in a Model T.)

Mark's observations are in sync with mine. If I can post such observations before potential purchasers enter the fray, I do so to help. Once a buyer has entered the fray, such observations may queer a sale, and I am hesitant to chime in. How do others feel about these matters? I work from a base that presumes our vendors would not knowingly offer parts which are not accurately represented, so offering advice should help educate vendors and purchasers, thus avoiding any problems with a sale.

I agree with you Allan - no way a set of '09 - '10 one piece spindles would sell for $80.00 !
