Default Re: RHD Pitman arm

Thanks for your replies. Although I would have thought there’d be more RHD 1935/6s out there. When I dismantled my 35 phaeton for restoration it was noted that the drag link was making contact with the underside of the radius rod when on a lock. I have a theory this is why Fords decided to put a curved pitman arm on to lower the position off the drag link thus providing more clearance. Without more information or evidence of other 1935/6 vehicles fitted with this arm, it’s still only a theory
