WTB 1931 20" split ring wheel locks

Post by dlevy » August 1st, 2017, 7:01 pm

Hi,

Does anyone have 2 nice split lock rings for the May 1930 and later AA 20" steel wheels?

These have the <90-degree notch at the end.

and should have the “FIRESTONE ☆ 30X5 ☆ DT ☆☆☆” or “☆FIRESTONE ☆ 20X5 * DT ☆☆☆” on the ring.

See the picture borrowed from the AA forum website http://aafords.com/aa-chassis/aa-1000-wheels/.

"d3" is what I am looking for.

Thanks,
Dave

i may but they sure wont be as nice as those in the pics. Useable yes but not super pretty... usually the nice ones arent loose...

where are you located as they are big and heavy to ship.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm in New York. I just need two rings, not the whole wheel.

Thanks,
Dave

FYI - The term plateable would mean void of rust pits so the split lock ring could be cadmium plated and look original. I have found very few which don't have the outer edge marred with hammer marks which need to be ground/sanded in prep for plating.
