Restoration Ford M8 #9880 parts availability

Post by Chimera6 » Sat Jan 06, 2018 3:58 pm

Hi guys,
A very good friend of mine is currently restoring a FORD M8 #9880 withdrawn from a shooting range.
He is already quite ahead in the restoration process and after 6 months of strong effort the turret and body look both very good. Now he focuses on suspension and he definitely needs to replace some broken parts. After exploring all the solutions in France and Europe, where we both live, he searched unsuccessfully the web for those parts as well. This is why I am asking for your help, in case some of you guys can give a good advice about any place in the US where we should find those parts.
All the references come from ORD SNL and Fig. 11.6 BOGIE :
- 2 x Pin B246809
- 2 x Nut A330164 (1”1/4 x 12F)
- 8 x Washer A330165 (A very specific one)
If some of you are interested, I can post few pictures next week.
Thank you in advance. Regards.
