Another pintle bracket question
« on: September 12, 2021, 03:44:31 PM »
Is ther more to the bracket then the bent 1/4 plate. I see in don’s photo it looks like there is something between the bracket and the spring. Here’s what I’ve made up so far.

Looks like another square 1/4” reinforcing plate.

Here’s mine, the square plate Jesse mentioned is just visible, then there’s 2 circular bushes inside the bracket at each end. See photo from Ord 9.

Thanks guys,yes I have the bushings with the spring just didn’t know what else was supposed to be there. Chris the last 6 inches of the rear are from an international. When I got my track it was missing the last couple of inches of frame, they cot it off with a torch.
