  1. Hi, Does someone have a photo of a 1921 DB drag link that connects the steering arm to the left front spindle?. Assuming now I do not have the correct one for the car. The one I have appears to be identical to a Model A ford one. If I attempt to make it fit the internal parts will not work. Are both ends of the correct link the same as a Model A one but I have incorrect innards? One end will fit correctly but the other end will not. Anyone have one for sale?? Thanks.
  2. Great thanks. Someone is trying yo sell a DB steering wheel with 1 keyway.. Yes lur car has the horn button on the drivers door. There were so many parts that are wrong on our Touring I have to question every part we are restoring to be sure we have correct parts. Thanks for the clarification on this. Found out we have the wrong drag link bar for the steering so looking for the correct one also.
  3. Hi, person I was working with still not making wheel available. Is this a 1921 DB wheel? My steering shaft has 2 key ways for wheel to fit over. Is it still for sale? Thanks.
  4. Hi, yes the ends come apart. Adjustable plug on ends then spring and hardened cup. Ball fits in then other hardened cup a spring . Parts I have do not make the ball tight.
  5. Yes! The drag link is hollow with grease fittings at each end. The parts install from the ends. Just do not know if the drag link I have is correct or not. Found a couple more in the back seat along with the one I believe is correct for the Dodge. Will try rare parts as you suggested. Thanks.
  6. Checked out Rare parts No Go!!
  7. Hi, I found a drag link in the back seat of the Touring we are restoring. It is missing the guts on each end. I tried Model A ford parts and they fit in the ends but the springs come up too short. Looks like each end has a different length for the parts to fit in. Is this correct? Also the full length of the link is 27 3/4 inches end to end. Is this the correct one for the 21 touring? Trying to secure parts and want to be sure I am rebuilding it correctly. Looking at a parts book it appears there are long springs on each end and the inside cups have tails that fit into tube to secure it. Thanks for any help on this, Don.
  8. Looking for the guts for the drag link that connects the left front spindle arm to the steering box arm. Either the complete unit or the innards for both ends. Thankd, Don.
  9. Hi, the drag link is correct for the touring. Well it turns out the drag link had a small chink in it. I was able to straighten it out. The model A drag link parts although fit inside the ends they come up too short for the link so I will have to hunt down the guts for both ends. Thought that was way too easy if they fit. Thanks for the info!!
  10. Hi, Today's challenge is restoring I believe the correct drag link that connects the steering arm to the left front spindle. I found it in the back of the car and it is bare with no parts inside it. I tried Model A ford innards and they look like they fit. Would this be correct Also the hollow link rod is bent a bit near the end of one side. Should the link have a bend from the factory or has someone bent it . Thanks, Don.
  11. Hi, there were 2 sleeve bushings in the lower end. I replaced them..I agree with you that there should either be a lower seal or an end cap. Mine is missing the end cap if that is what should be there. Did not know if something else should slide in there as it is about 1 3/8 inches from the end of the box and where the worm shaft ends.Just a smooth bore where I pushed the new bronze sleeve bushing in. I can machine an aluminum plug to seal it off if that is all that fits there? Thanks.
  12. Hi, I cleaned up the steering box and replaced a few sleeve bearings. It came out great. My question is at the lower end of the steering box I have a hole which I can see the lower end of the steering worm shaft. It is about 1 3/8 inches deep and about 1 1/4 inches in diameter. It is machined out and appears something was once in this hole. I have no idea what fits in here. Does anyone know what is missing on the end?? Thanks Don.
  13. Fantastic, it looks like I have the newer wheel ( 24ish) in cast Aluminum and will need to locate a cast steel one with it attaching on the underside of the round wooden wheel. Contacting a site now to see what they have. O.K. That part of the restoration has been solved again by the forum. Thanks as always Don.
  14. Hi yes I watched his video. My problem is, do I have the correct steering wheel? Is there anybody on this site that has a 1921 and can verify which wheel I am supposed to have. Do not want to restore an incorrect wheel. Thanks.
  15. Hi, Thanks for the replies and appreciate it. My question is if this steering wheel is correct for a 1921 Touring before I invest any time in it. Some thought it was for a later car, Thanks.
