This is more for period fettlers who like to use proper bits. If you love to use modern "Rose" joints and other bits of current crap, you wont even be remotely interested. If you have a mainly original Ford chassis like my nephew Hughie, but hate the random death lunges, as your, otherwise stock-chassied hot-rod seems to decide of its own free will to be taking you into the nearest stone wall as you career down your country track. These Panhard bars he made have completely tamed his Model A roadster which is now a pure pleasure to drive. The starting premise was to use only Ford parts, keep it simple, and preferably not too visible. So as neat as possible, no ugly brackets hanging down, not too much chopping up of Henry's precious metal. So why not buy one of the many proprietory bars available to the hot Rod community? Well, they all looked a bit crappy to us, and its way more satisfying to make your own, no? You need some 3/8" steel plate, some 3/4" square bar, 2 ford tie-rods complete with ends, and 4 weld-in tie rod balls. The pics should be self-explanatory. Remove front spring plate and weld on 2 pieces plate as here, plus ball. Heres another view. This off set to one side of the spring plate lengthens the Panhard rod as much as possible, taking into account that we are making the chassis mount (as opposed to axle mount) here in the middle, not in the ideal place, which is as far away from the axle mount as possible. Here is the axle mount. A piece of 3/4" square bar, drilled and tapped for 2 3/8" bolts, and a tie rod ball welded in the centre. The axle needs to be drilled to mount this block. As close to the radius arm as possible. Offer up the tie rod end first to check clearance. You gotta luv the old stock bolts! Heres what it looks like Front view There will be some that say a Panhard bar must run from the chassis one side to the axle on the other side. For a racing car this may be true, and is without doubt ideal. However, if you crawl under your A, you will see you have to mess quite a bit with the chassis in the area in question. This is a compromise, that is now fully tested, and works a treat. The appliance of (bush) science to the rear end follows immediately! Tom.
