Franklin series 9 and 10 spindle (steering knuckle) differences

Recommended Posts

Hello. Can anyone tell me if Franklin made different length spindles for the series 9 and 10 cars. I am speaking specifically about the distance between the inner and outer bearings. The 1917 series 9A that I have measures approximately 3" from the outside faces of the inner and outer bearings. It seems to me that this distance increased on later models. I am just looking to get educated on the differences here on only the series 9 and 10 cars. Thanks in advance.

Barring anyone having firsthand knowledge I would suggest you research the parts manuals and drawings on the club website to see what differences there are between the 9A, 9B, and the following series 10's

It looks like Series 9B lengthened the spindle nose by 1-19/32". This is why my Series 9A spindles will not fit my Buffalo #4 wheel hubs. I don't suppose anyone has a pair of 9B spindles they will part with?
