What I found from an old sheet from Balsters was EWC 540, EWC 541, and Wards 431. No other brands or models on the list for that part Q455 but that doesn't mean it couldn't have been on an Oliver, Dearborn or other rebranded EWC running gear from that time period.

Thanks for taking the time to look at that! I'm gonna attach a pix of the gear if came off of. The wheels/ rims were originally yellow. The gear looks like it was orifinally green then hand re-painted with a different color green. You'll see on the front it has an additional bolster. I'm thinking it used to have a spring under it. The back has the standards (brackets for stringers) mounted on the base though. It didn'thave an additional bolster for the back when I salvaged this thing. Is there any other way to ID this gear model? I'd sure like a copy of those sheets you got from Balsters. Shoot me a price and I'll send the check.

That gear never had a spring under the bolster, that is what is called a rocking bolster so that the gear could flex on uneven ground without the bed having to twist and the back axle if you look at it is raised so it is the same height as the top of the front bolster for the bed to set level. In other words the back spindale are droped from the axle while the front spindals are straight out in line with the axle and without that bolster and they could be converted to a fixed position instead of the rocking feature the bed would set too low it would not clear the steering mechanisem and tie rods.

Thanks for clearing that up for me Leroy. I'm actually releived to hear that. I was afraid I was going to have to find another Bolster and spring mech. to put it back original. I guess what screwed me up was a 1951 add I saw for a EWC spring bolster set up on both bolsters. I'm learning a ton about gears everyday. Got this twisted old thing from an old Irishman farmer that lived down the road from me. After he passed I took care of his place for a summer as his family members all lived out of State. I didn't take a dime for it, they just said come and get what ever old machinery was around that I wanted, they were gonna scrap it all. This gear had grease fittings in outside of the hubs. I had never seen that or this bolster set up before so I took this. It took me an hour to cut it out of the hedge trees and stickers. I see now the grease fittings were added by somebody along the way.

It's new maiden voyage is gonna be this summer with a load of kids on a hay rack ride. Were gonna swing by the grave yard and say hi to Harold and let him see his old gear all fixed up!! We're getting there slow but sure.
