Default Snap-On spring spreader

Need some help.

Does anyone have any info on the snap on s9023 spring spreader?

The snap on 1936 and 1937 catalogs I have seen on line all refer to it having a ball bearing ratchet assembly to take the thrust. I do not see any bearings in the one I just got. Am I missing something?

Thanks,

Will

Will, I believe the thrust they are referring to is a bearing like the Model A king pin bearing. I have the 9023 spreader but no C shaped part for rear spring. The ratchet is just a reversible ratchet. The thrust bearings are between the tubes and screws.

Mike- thanks for the link to the patent it shows exactly where the bearing is in the nut.

KR500- I just got the c shaped part to go over the rear end center section. You are right, the bearing is just like a king pin thrust bearing. Mine was so dirty and nasty that it did not move at all. I took it out and after a good soaking in lacquer thinner I was able to free it up.

I will post some photos after I finish cleaning it up.

Will
