Cheap and inferior parts used in connection with the steering control are. liable to cause accidents of a very serious nature. You Risk Your Life When You Use Ipiitation Spindles In a recent test the tensile strength of the genuine Ford Vanadium Steel spindle arm was found to be oyer 100% more than that of the. counterfeit machine steel The arms were submitted to shock, and the counterfeit arm broke pulling force 'equivalent to pounds applied to a. cross section. Ttyj same pulling force applied to_a corres- ponding cross section of a genuine Ford spinidle arm did not even change its original shape, In order to the genuine spindle arm it was necessary to apply a pulling force of pounds. The spindle arm is one of the vital parts en- tering into the control of a car, and by using spurious parts in such places, Ford owners are risking lives and property. Genuine Ford Springs versus Imitation. Springs Genuine Ford front and rear springs are made of yanadium .spring steel having a tensile strength of pounds per square inch, and an elastic limit ..of pounds. Every spring is tested the factory. Front springs are subjected to a pressure of pounds, in the fatigue test the average gen- uine spring .will stand strokes before breaking. Rear subjected to a pressure of 2000. pounids' and the average genuine spring absorb 40, QCO strpkes before breaking. Imitation springs are generally made of car- bon steel having a tensile, strength of only pounds per square inch and an elastic limit of only HSjOOO pounds.. In. ordinary service they scon flatten out. YoiTare merely protecting yourself and avoiding repeated repair bills when you, demand genuine Ford parts.
