Mine is in pieces, but I have acquired a complete rear suspension. The brass tag is from one of two that where cut up because the farmer couldn't sell them. As you can see I'm in HB CA. Always willing to share info. Bob E.

Bummer... He He... That was because you are on the beach...

Any chance you could send any pics of the pieces the second axle mounted on, I want to compare with mine.

Here's more info from F&F suspension, these casting numbers are how I identified it was same as mine. Top spring clamp plate #FAA 16-A / Bottom spring clamp plate #FAA 16 / Frame saddle left side CAA-7 / Right side CAA-8 / Center Pivot Block LS-RS FAA-118-19 / It has 4 leafs in bottom spring and 14 leafs in top spring. Sorry about the angle of these pics but I have limited space. Bob E.

Hi Bob, yes I have, but the photos aren't quite clear enough of the actual mechanism. Thanks. Dave
