Application ltiled February 11, 1886. Serial No. 191,628. (No model.)
To aZ/ whomj it may concern.-
Beit known that I, CHARLES M. BLYDEN- nunon, a citizen of the United States, residing at Riverhead, in the county of Suffolk and State of New York, haveinvented certain new and useful Improvements in Vehicle-Gear; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the saine, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to letters or figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
Figurel of the drawings is a representation of a plan view. Fig. 2 is a front elevation. Fig. 3 is an enlarged plan view of the reaehconnection. Fig/I is a vertical section of the saine on line x at. Fig. 5is an enlarged vertical section of one end of the axle. Fig. 6 is a transverse section of the same on line y y, and Fig. 7 isan enlarged transverse section through the center of the rear axle.
My invention relates to the running-gear of vehicles; and it consists in the construction and novel combination of parts, as hereinafter set forth, and pointed out in the claims.
Referring by letter to the' accompanying drawings, A designates the front axle, and B the rear axle, of'the vehicle-gear. These axles are inadc of thin parallel bars GI),- ot metil, either curved upwardly at their ends or without the curves, as may be desired, said bars G D being welded or secured by bolts to the sides of short axlearnis E E', so that there is sufficient space between said parallel bars C D for the spring F to pass between from above downwardly to the under side and couple into links G G, the latter being connected with suitable bearing-plates, H H', resting either on the top of or against the under side of the axle arlns E E. The bearing -plates H H are secured to the axle-arms E E by bolts I, passed down through the inner ends of said bearing-plates, and the outer ends of the bearing-plates are secured by clips or bolts J J. The clips .I J on the rear axlearins also connect' the rear ends of the reach-braces K K thereto. The ends of the springs F and F are provided with eyes L, which are connected between the lower ends of the linkarins of the links G G by transverse pivotbolts. The bearing-plates H'I-I have each a space, M, cast in over the belt-hole N, to receiveapiece ofrubberorleather, O. This piece of rubber or leather O is forced inits seat with the bolt M, that connects the upper ends of the link-arms of the links G G' to their bearing-plates, and causes a constant pressure on top of the bolt and prevents rattling at this point.
-In this running-gear I aim to provide a strong connection of the reach andfront axle, and one in which the kingbolt Q will be relieved of all strain. This laeconiplish in the following manner: Between the parallel bars of the open axle, at the middle ot the same, I secure a casting, a, having four radial arms, b, with bolt-holes b', through which securingbolts b2 are passed into the parallel bars of the axle. The hub c of this casting a has its enlarged axial bore c provided in its middle line with a washer or washers, d, of rubber or leather. 0n the inner faces ot' the metal straps or irons e e are provided integral bosses or spools f f', which are long enough when in place in the bore c of the hub to extend to the internal washer or washers. The spools and washer or washers d Ell the axial bores c of the hub, so that when the king-bolt Q is in place the strain will come upon the bosses or spoolsf j, and not upon the king-bolt. Vashers g g are interposed between the ends of the hub c of the casting a and the straps or irons e e. rIhese irons c e are connected to the reach R by bolts and nuts h h. The reach is connected to the rear axle by hook-clips t' t', or in the saine manner as that described -for the front end or in any other suitable convenient manner. An axle constructed as this one is constructed will be found to be lighter and yet Vstiffer and stronger than if constructed of a single bar.
Having described this invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, 1s
1. An axle having separated parallel eonnecting-bars between its journals and a casting secured therein for connecting the reach, substantially as specified.
2. The combination of an axle having curved parallel connectingbars between its journals ICO and asprng clipped at the ends thereof and adapted to move between the said bars, substantially as speeied.
3. The combination, with an axle having curved separated parallel connecting-bars between its journals, of the spring, the bearingplates on its journal-arms, and the pivoted links connecting the bearing-plates and spring, substantially as specified.
4. The combination, with the downwardlycurved open axle having the parallel bars between its journals, of the casting secured between the said parallel connecting-bars, the
reach provided with metal connecting plates and bosses on their inner faces, and the kingbolt passed through the connecting-plates, substantially as specified.
5. The combination, with the open axle having the parallel bars between the journals, of the casting provided with the attaching-arms zo around its hub, the reach provided with the metal connecting-bars, with bosses on their inner faces, and the king-bolt passed through theconneoting-bars and said casting, substantially as specified.
In testimony whereof Iafx my signature in presence of two witnesses.
