1934 - 1935 Lower “A” frame yoke pivot pin

Recommended Posts

I am rebuilding my 1935  lower  ‘A’ frame but the pivot pin that goes thru the yoke is not good.    It’s a 1” diameter pin with cross drilling’s to get grease to the two bronze bearings.     Both pins are in need of replacement.   Is there a nos  pin available ?

pont35cpe,  I contacted the guys in Ca.   Rare Parts.   Cherry was very nice.    I  have found that some King Pin kits (80/90 series) have a diameter of 1.062.   I think that can be centerless ground to get to the correct dia.     Also, the  38-90   'A'  frame in the same position has a 1" dia pin that seems to be identical to the pin on my '1935'  yoke.   I have cross referenced these pin dia. with  my service manuals so this may be good.    I have let the guys at Rear parts know what I've found.    It should be interesting what they come up with.

Rare Parts in California had a great replacement.  A better design than the original design....
