What part of a T are theses?

Post by Dan Hatch » Sun Jul 21, 2019 7:55 pm

I have a lot of NOS double threaded studs that are 3/8” SAE thread both ends, about 2 1/4” long, only cotter pin hole in ONE end. Does anyone know what part number they are or where they go on a T? Thanks Dan

I'm guessing but I think they are radius rod ball cap studs. The holes are for safety wire, not cotter pin.

The fine thread each end is found on manifold studs, but they are not drilled for a split pin.
The front radius rod ball cap studs on our Canadian sourced cars have a coarse thread on the pan end.
The radiator mounting studs are drilled for split pins both ends.
I can't think of any other studs used on T's.

These are not radius rod cap studs, they are NC one side. These are same size as rad studs but only one hole. Maybe after market? Dan

Hi Dan,

I believe that what you have there ARE front radius rod ball cap studs used only on the 1909 and 1910 cars. I am sure that the Ford engineers had a good reason to make the change. Best Regards, Bill

Could also be the studs in the early differential housings, Bob
