    Default Parts Identification

    DSCN4702[1].jpg

    I'm working on my parts inventory which now spans 50 years of trading and acquisition. I have almost all of them (large and small) in a database, sorted primarily by Harley part number, but also searchable by description, model, condition, etc. However, the part numbers are the most important field. I started this effort in December when I gave up my shipping container, and am finally nearing the finish line in this interesting, but sometimes tedious and frustrating effort.

    As suspected, I have a box of 'orphan' parts and, in an effort to not wear out my welcome, I've attached only one of the several photo I've taken. I certainly remember these parts and have come across them over the years, but memory fails in my recollection of their application. I've spent considerable time in the parts books but they've defied my efforts and I'm stumped in identifying them.

    As shown in the (hopefully) attached photo, all of these brackets are cast iron (or similar), about 1/4" in thickness, and parkerized. The caliper is shown for scale. Can anyone help put with the correct part numbers and applications (Robbie)?

    Bill,
    The three hole and the long "Y" shape are part of Buddy seat hardware. The 45 degree off set one looks familiar, I'll think on it. The tri-lobal sort of symmetric one I am not sure of.

    Thanks Robbie,
    I (again) checked the buddy seat exploded diagram in my knucklehead parts book, as well as my '49 through '57 panhead parts book and and didn't find the the Y-shaped buddy seat brackets, so I still can't determine their P/N. Maybe they appear in an accessory catalog somewhere where I can glean the P/N? However, the straight, 3-hole brackets might be might be P/N 13314-36 (52543-36), 'Seat Bar Mounting Plate (2)', which appear to be shown in the buddy seat group. What do you think?

    OOPS! I just reread your previous post and you did state that the 3-hole bracket was for the buddy seat. So the P/N and description for the Y-bracket still remains a mystery (to me).

    A vernier doesn't have a dial, Tom!

    That would be a dial indicator, the ones with dials that is.

    PS: I had a partner spill wicking-grade Loctite into his Mitotoyo full. I felt bad, not just because it was my Loctite.

    And a venier is a scale.

    So what happened with the loctited calipers?
