Default Nelson Bros. Model T

My 1 3/4 HP model T Nelson is gonna need a wrist pin soon. Aren't they from a Model T Ford engine or something? Can anyone give me a short-cut or a part number that I can reference or something?

I appreciate any advice,

Bruce

Their advertisement bragged about having 17 parts in common with a model 'T' Ford...Don't know about the wrist pin. But if you find out, let the rest of us know too!...Mine is gonna' need one real soon!~

I'll try to remember to check my parts box tonight Bruce. I'm pretty sure I have extra wrist pin bushings, but I don't know if I have extra pins.

Are you sure it's the pin and not the bushings? I just put a new bushing in my Connecting rod of my Nelson T. Found the perfect bronze bushing in the little hardware drawers at Tractor Supply. The new one I bought was too long so I just trimmed it down and squared the end up with a lathe. It's the engine I posted the video of a couple of weeks ago.

Bruce, I only have bushings. As I recall, I only had to polish the pin when I restored my engine. Like Hank, the bushing was shot in my connecting rod.
