What's the Difference?

Recommended Posts


Between the Sovereign PS and non-PS steering arm besides one is NLA, undoubtedly more $$, one has a hole, one has a stud, and there aren't 10 or 15 of one of them in my parts pile? Distance of hole/stud from vertical shaft? Angle of arm from keyways? Anything else??

The difference is the stud is moved 1/2" closer to the spindle so that the heim joint will not hit the frame when turning. That is what I had to do on the ones that I copied. You can also use a shoulder bolt through the heim joint and a nut at the bottom.

Thanks for the photos Bill. They answer my questions well. I would guess another reason for moving the stud inward might be to provide more clearance for the cylinder from the tractor frame.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
