Touché! I like that one.. :lol: But for really "agricultural" you can't go past an '09 IHC highwheeler :shock:
Yes, by "looking after" it'd be a matter of getting in before the KE digs itself a stress raiser ditch in the eye.
I still find the knife edge system weird - very weird, but then I do come from a pretty much conventional motoring background (veteran cars exempted!)

everythings different on a 2cv, in a good way, a lot of it was well thought out and very well engineered, but there are a few things which are a pain in the but!

I've seen somewhere a suggestion that the hex-type* aren't as satisfactory (strong?) as the non-welded (round) type. Any comments?

*they do look a bit agricultural in concept and execution, I feel.. :|


far from being agricultural they were a common eingineering solution to reducing friction in such scientific instruments as the common kitchen scales :lol:


the old forged eyes were better but then some of the pattern parts now available seem to have missed the point and are simply made the same shape as the originals without thought to the function , and thse show some very strange wear patterns after short mileages

2many's picture above is a knife edge still in its first flush of youth :lol:

By agricultural, I was referring to the welded hex item as opposed to the single/forged item, not the use of the knife edge principle. Away from the kitchen scales example, are there other automotive applications of that principle? I'd be interested to find out. I still reckon it'd be feasible to use high quality (strength) rose joints (female rod ends).
I would have said that the crack in 2many's photo was in its first flush of disaster, BTW ;)

have i lost the plot, or can the knife edges only go through the shackles? (bits attached to the arms) one way? i seem to remeber swearing a lot to get them lined up
