To provide additional clearance between drag link and front brake shaft housing, the end of the drag link, which was formerly assembled to the rear, is now assembled to the front. This necessitated relocating the lubricator fittings so they would be easily accessible when the position of the drag link was reversed.
When installing a new drag link, note that on one end of the drag link the opening for the ball arm is approximately 3/8 inch from the end of the drag link (this end must be assembled to the spindle arm). On the opposite end the opening is approximately 1 3/8” inches from the end of the link (this end is assembled to the steering gear arm). See Fig. 592.
