Default Re: RHD Pitman arm

I used A Model A drag link on my 33 because it had a bolt on steering arm which is straight rather than the slightly angled forward stock arm. The Model A drag link is shorter than a 33/34 and does not put the steering on the sweet spot of the box in the straight ahead position. It was a bit out on mine and would be worse on a stocker. I replaced it with a made up adjustable drag link.

Thanks for your replies. Although I would have thought thered 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, its still only a theory
