1924 DODGE KING PINS

Recommended Posts

I need king pins for my late 1924 Dodge..  My king pins are 7 1/2" long, 7/8" diameter, with spiral lubrication groove, copper bushings at top and bottom, thrust bearing, and slot for tapered retaining pin.  The pins being marketed are actually a bolt with a nut, 6" active length, 7 1/2" total length, bushings at each end, no thrust bearing, no spiral lubrication groove.  QUESTIONS:  What do I have?  Has my axle been changed?   Where can I get new pins and bushings?  Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi 30s, Firstly check the part # of the front axle It is cast onto the axle on the right side front between the spring perch and the kingpin pivot If your frame # is below A 204877 the axle part # should be 18303 If your frame # is above A 204877 the axle part # should be 32409 .

Maybe they are not original pins that are in your car that is if they do not have a hex head From the info that I have the hex head pin went up until late 27  I hope that I have been of some help Ron

Based on the posts above, I must not have a 1924 front axle.  My axle casting number is 10872.  My frame number is A 27-736.   Can anyone tell what axle I have?

There appears to be a number missing from your frame number They have 6 numbers  Going by Myers production dates Frame #s starting with A 270-000  started on March 3 1925. Are you missing a #? The # you have found on your axle does not match any on the DB 1915 to 1933 parts book Can you post a photo of what you have?

Here are some pictures of my axle.  Hopefully someone can identify it.  The axle casting number is 10572, instead of the number 10872 which  I previously listed.  The casting number appears on the left front and on the right rear of the axle faces.  The plate on the floorboard says 608041.  Thanks for your help.
