|Allen Wheel Casting: This is a photo of a Heisler wheel
casting made by Allen Models. The OD is ~
5.6" so the finished wheel will be about 5.25" ---
which would be 39.375" at 1.6" scale. One might be
able to stretch it to a full scale 40" ----a near perfect
model of the Cass 6 wheel.
The wheel is ~ 1.1" thick so there is plenty of material
in that direction.
|Rod: This photo shows measuring the rod
length. The length between centers is 66 inches so whoever
was holding the other end didn't have it exactly on center.
|Another view showing the structure of the rod and rod end.
The drawing below shows measurements of the Cass 6 rod. I
was unable to get a measurement of the pin size since it was
covered by the large washer. There is probably a sleeve
bearing between the rod and pin.
The Cass 6 Wheel and Rod drawings above are included in the
truck drawing that can be downloaded from the
