I know you're no a greenie here Craig, but a newbie might not
know that some of us are into those tiny details. And those tiny
details are what keeps the hobby interesting.
I mean....a cotter pin....three pages of discussion???

Well lets shoot for 4 pages. I am still trying to figure out what the purpose is for that cotter pin/slight swivel arrangement.

My guess would be that they needed it to slide to accommodate
different size tires Carl. The cotter pin was simply a cheap
inexpensive off the shelf way of retaining it. Could very easily
been a long clevis pin but then you would still need a second
part....a cotter pin.

Are there any other more modern trucks that have a similar rack that is compatible with our Stovebolts? This is a hidden, utilitarian item that I am not very "picky" about in a restoration to near-stock condition, so I may cut a corner here and look for something more findable at the local boneyard... if possible. Any suggestions?

I also read on another site a guy used a underbed carrier off a 1979 ford pickup

They sell aftermarket underbed spare tire carrier systems for the AD. At least Jim Carter was doing it for awhile, not sure if he still offers them. Going that route, you wouldn't have alot of fabrication to do. In truth, it wouldnt be that hard to design an underbed spare tire carrier. Rather than all of that sliding crap, you could just put a hinge on the back side. If that isnt your thing, a drawer slide. If I wasnt so busy already, I could draw something up.. so if I can do it, anyone can.

Cutting this one off an inch would be a lot easier than making one.

I agree. Even an extra 1" length to spread apart would not hurt anything except at a Concours show.
