Front Brake Operating Pin Comparison

Shown here is a comparison of the A-2075 and B-2075 front brake operating pins. These are NOS pins which I also had cadmium plated.

The operating pin is located inside the front kingpins (spindle bolts) and relays the force and displacement from the actuators attached to the spring perch to the brake shoe roller wedges inside the brake drum.

The A-2075 pin shown on top was used on all 1928 to 1931 Model A's and is 7.250 inches overall length.

The B-2075 pin shown on the bottom was used on all 1932 to 1934 Model B's and Model 40 and is 7.750 inches overall length.
