Owen, it looks like I have the one on the left. Is it hard to change out?

Repair Idler Arm 1947 Custom Super Clipper

After replacing my Tie Rod End on the passenger side, I noticed play in the Idler Arm where it connects Idler Lever Support. I am guessing and hoping that it's just a bushing worn out.
Has anyone ever replaced one and where can I get a replacement bushing.

You can take a couple of 2x2's fastened to another 2X2 making a U and place it at the front of the bottom of the engine and lift with a floor jack. Don't just try and jack it up on the oil pan. And it would be a good ideal to remove the two front engine bolts and than remove the whole bracket that's in your way. The motor mount looks like it needs to be replaced anyway.
Hope this helps.

I couldn't leave this along, so I took the Driver's side Tie Rod End off and found it has Righthand threads also. And the correct answer to why different part numbers was answer by 56executive. Because the grease fitting both point to the rear of the car.
So this is one for future reference.

I think the orginal question was if the tie rod end on the passenager side is righthand or lefthand threads.

Hi, I know this is old but I have to replace my tie rod on the passenger side also, so here's what I found. To remove this tie rod you have to turn it Counter Clockwise so, I guess that means it's a Righthand thread, and the grease fitting is position on the side of the tie rod pointing to the rear of the car.

Big Kev, I don't know if you have this yet, but it looks like good information on brake systems from the 40's.
Here is the link to the website:
