    Yes, exactly. Those rods are for the E'28 when there was no separate e-brake and the left handle activated all 4 wheels as the "parking brake".
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      Close. VE rods were adjustable without upset for return springs. Early 28 were adjustable with the upset. May to November 28 rods were non adjustable with upset (shown). Then with the intro of the single piece cross shafts the adjustable rods were brought back. BTW, there were diameter changes too...but I'll let you look them up.

        Did you mean "not shown", as I don't see any upset in the two pictures?

        I have a couple of these somewhere in the parts pile. Had a hard time finding some when I needed them, but after I sold that project I ended up with some. Weird how things like that work. Rod

          I looked for years and couldn't find any.
          When I stopped at Bert's in Denver I found several in his barrels of brake rods.

              Beleive it was June to Sept of 28. Even though the Dec 28 Special Coupe I had years ago had them on the front. Had adjustable rods on the rear. Rod

                Non Adjustable Brake Rods...2 different lengths?

                According to the data there has always been, to my knowledge, just one length of the early/mid 1928 Non Adjustable Brake Rods.

                That is being 52 inches in TOTAL length. (Centerline to centerline of eyes is 51-1/2)

                Now, I have run into another Non-Adjustable Brake Rod that is 52-1/4 inches in TOTAL length. (Centerline to centerline of eyes is 51-11/16).

                This is...

                The non-adjustable brake rods must be non-existant...been looking for some for 3 months now.

                Anyone have any that are decent?

                Thanks.

                The brake rods that came with my 1911 project are pretty much straight. The picture shown in the suppliers catalogs show a couple of bends in them . What should they look like? Art...

                I have discovered something I haven't seen before. I was going through the 3 or 4 pairs of rear radius rods to pick the ones to use on my phaeton's rearend and noticed something I haven't noticed before. The brackets for the brake rod springs are different for some of them. The most common ones are the ones in the third picture - maybe 29 radius rods?? The brackets that are sandblasted are from a...

                What is this issue here, both front rods slide over the adjusting nut and bend rods from time to time. I see there were 4 different arms but standards say they were assembled interchangeable at assembly. Anything to learn here? To fast in turning corners? I have installed the deflector shields from long ago which stopped it but is it necessary?

                I recently acquired a 1915 "project" roadster and have a problem with the brake rods being too short to adjust the hand brake properly- brake lever only goes back, about half way to where it should rest and adjustments not possible - have replaced the brake pads and compared the position of the cam levers (on the rear hub) to my touring car and they appear to be tilted about 15-20 degrees...

                Brake Adjustment Procedure:



                I've noticed posts about sticking brake pedals and poor brakes. If the brake rods are not set up correctly , the brakes will be poor even if all parts are new . Here is how I do mine . I first adjust the brake adjustment wedges at each wheel with the brake rods disconnected at the clevis end . I start by adjusting the wedges at the rear wheels...

                I dropped my engine off at Schwalms this week for a short block rebuild. It turns out it had "X-connecting rods". The rod shafts have an "X" rather than an "H" shaped casting. Ora indicated this style was used on late '27 T's and very early A's. I had not heard of these before. Apparently there were issues with the X design and he does not re-babbitt and use them...

                All four of my model A's were severely molested and weather worn when I bought them. Many parts including the emergency brake carriers were either missing or were of questionable correctness. Anyway, I am trying to find the correct emergency brake carriers for an early 29 and mid 29 vehicles. I know they aren't seen when installed, but nether the less I would like to use the proper carriers. I...
