  • Shock Arm Manufacturers Mark

    Getting ready to clean up the rest of my shock arms to possibly come up with a set with matching marks and correct style. What are the most common mark? Also I have not yet bought the revised JS. Were there any changes made to the shock arm section? Planning to buy new JS in Sept. before going on Junk Jaunt so I can look closely for items needed correct parts. Rod

      Steve schumack (sp?) Has a great book on shock & arms. don't know if it's available through the vendors. If I remember. na, spicer, houdille & possibly ford made arms. Center parting lines, side parting lines, and markings are some of the differences.

        Jim is correct above, i copied this out of the JS anyway's


        The Model A used two basic styles of shock
        arms, which were characterized by either
        an edge forging-die-parting line or a center
        forging-die-parting line.


        Initially Ford manufactured all Model A
        shock arms using their own forgings and
        forgings from suppliers. As production
        accelerated, Ford continued to produce shock
        anns, however, additional sources were
        required. This included the three other shock
        absorber manufacturers, Houde, national
        Acme and Spicer as well as other suppliers.

          Should have the shocks taken care of soon as I am working on a deal to trade our pile of cores for 2 sets of rebuilt shocks. Will see how it works out in Oct. I know I have some later arms that I will offer to trade with someone once I see how close I am to having arms with matching marks. Rod
