WXLLIAM A.. Parnu-son, or FLIXT, MICHIGAN.
SIDE-SPRING VEHICLE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 356.954, dated February 1,1887.
Applcaiifn filed November l1, 1886, Serial No. 218,512. (No model.)
T @ZZ whom] i may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM A. Parse soN, of Flint, in the county of Genesee and State of Michigan, have :invented new and useful Improvements in Side-Spring SideBar Vehicles; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification. j
This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in what are usually known as side'spring side-bar wagons.
ln vehicles of this class it is usual to connect the head-block and rear axle together by means of Wooden side bars secured to the top of such axle and head-block outside the vertical plane of the springs, the ends of which are attached also to the top of such axle and headblock inside the vertical plane of the side bars, such arrangement being necessary to allow of the vertical action of the springs Without'being impeded in such move- 'ment by impingement against the side bars.
My improvement consists,`iirst, in Vsubstituting flat steel bars for the wooden side bars, and securing them to the under side oi' the rear axle' and head-block in the same Vertical plane with the side springs, and in the means for so securing them in place that the free movement of the springs will not throw them into contact with the side bars, as more fully hereinafter described.
Figure l is a plan viewof my improvement. Fig. 2 are details showing the construction of the clip and jack or hanger for securing the iront ends of the steel side bar and spring to the head-block. Fig. 3 is a detail showing the construction of the clip and jack for securing the steel' side bars and springs to the rear axle. Fig. et is a vertical central longitudinal section through one of the springs, side bars, and their attachments.
In the accompanying drawings, which form apart of this speeidcation, A is the rear axle, B the front axle, and C the head-block, all of the known and usual construction.
D represents a side bar, preferably made of tempered steel, and secured at one end to the under side of the rear axle, A, and at the other end to the under side of the head-block C, each end being thus secured by the means hereinafter described, and which are also employed to secure the steel springs E at one end to the upper side of such rear axle, and at the other to theupper side of the said head-block immediately above and in the same vertical plane With the steel side bars.
F is a brace, clipped at one end to the under side of the rear axle, A, near the shoulder, and secured at its other end to the side bar, D, to prevent lateral swaying.
In order to enable me to secure the parte together, andvat the same time to not interrupt the free) vertical and straightening action, of the springs When the vehicle is in use, and to enable me to malte the Work` stronger, durable, and cheap, I employ fasteningskk constructed as follows: A clip, c, embraces the front end of the steel side bar, D, the ends of such clip passing up through the head-block'O, and are threaded. b is a plate having a recess, c, in its under face to embrace the head-block C, and holes d to engage it with the arms of the clip, Where it is secured by the nuts c. This plate b has a. loop, h, formed upon it, through which a link, k, passes, 'which also connects with the front end or" the spring E, thereby suspending the front end of the spring to and in vrear of the upper side of the head-block and immediately over the side bar. The rear ends of the side bar and spring are secured to the rear axle, A, by-a clip, m, passing through aplate, n, embracing the said axle, and through the side bar, D, where it is secured by nuts o. The plate a has a loop, s, formed thereon, through which and a similar loop, t, inthe end ofthe spring E engages the link u, so that the spring and side bar are secured to the rear axle by this device.
that I claim as my invention isl l; In a side-spring side-bar vehicle, the combination of a side bar, secured at one end to the under side of the rear axle and at the other end to the under side of the head-block, with a spring located on the same Vertical plane with said side bar and secured at one end to the upper side of the headblock,in dependent of said bar, Vand by the same clip that secures the side bar to the head-block,
substantially as specified.
2. In a side-spring sidebar vehicle, the
combination, with the head-block, side bar,
IOO
and side spring7 of a clip embracing said headends of said clip, endl a recess, c, n-its under block amdl sidebar and :formed with a recess faceto embrace the head-block; said plate be- 1o to receive the former, and a loop, h, and Iche ing alsol formed with a loop, h, substantially links pvotally connecting said loops and side as and for the purpose specie 5 Springs, substantially as described. VILLIAM A. PATEBSON. s
3. The combination, with the side bar and Witnesses: heed=-block, of the clip a, having threaded H. S. SPRAGUE, ends, plate b, having holes d, to receive the E. SOULLY.
