Front Wheels - 20" heavy
duty spoked bicycle type wheels with pneumatic tubes and wide
tyres for appearance. The wheels suggested include 3/4" roller
bearings for a fixed through-shaft and hub flanges suitable for
mounting a disc brake.
Wheel Support Blocks -
These are the main front axle support assemblies - they incorporate the tilted king pin axis and the Ackerman
geometry steering arms. They also provide support for the
bicycle style brake disc callipers.
Beam Axle - Wooden structure
reinforced with internal steel ties to support the wheels. The
vehicle loads are passed down through the suspension springs
almost directly into the wheel supports and the beam axle itself
sees very little bending loading. It is however sideways and
torsionally when the voiturette turns or brakes.
Panhard Link - Provides
effective lateral location of the beam axle over its range of
Suspension Components - Coil
compression springs and radius arms.
