  • Locking washer
  • On the steering of my 1946 2N under the steering wheel cap there is two nuts and a locking washer. Iím looking to replace mine itís warn out to the point of no return. I have replaced the shaft and bearings now I need the lock washer and there is no number for it. Where can I find and buy a new one looking for a number on it or any info. In the manuals itís under nut and washer with no part number as far as I can find.
    Thanks Rich

  • Did you try the MPC? We have some of the OEM MPC's in our MANUALS forum for free downloads -see LINK below. Steering boxes, wheels, and related parts changed throughout the years so be certain you have the right one. Only one lockwasher is shown, p/n 351544, 15/16" ID x 1-1/2" OD, internal on the shaft. I suspect you have more than just a lockwasher worn.

  • Thanks Tim thatís the correct one 351544-S the nuts are fine just the lock washer is warn out. Even if I google that number no washer comes up as the manual put it itís special. This is a sweet manual also. I will save it for reference. So any clue on a lock washer?

  • You wouldn't expect any of those old parts to come up nowadays. They are no longer serviced, but a few items and hardware are made by Dennis Carpenter and sold by him and Just8Ns. FORD TRACTIR was out of business by 1991. Many parts made thru aftermarket suppliers and use the same part numbers but they are not made by Ford and a lot are not quality parts. Like I said, may also have other issues in the column. Looks like there is a bearing too --- might also be junk. Lockwashers just don't wear out and/or get ruined.
