24-A Model, fresh from the assembly line?



I wonder how that lift works with only two arms on the same side.

It looks to me like there is a subframe mounted to the chassis of the Bus (or the Bus is resting on it). Presumably, that subframe consists of two parallel rails with two long pins running laterally through them. The ends of those pins would attach to the two lifting arms in the nearside of the photo.

If you look closely, there is a potential illusion in viewing the two arms, but they appear to be oriented inline with the length of the rails of the entire assembly, and they're action is in parallel with the ramps and up-and-down in the fore/aft direction, and so when it lifts, it resembles two railroad crossing arms lifting in the same direction, thereby translating the Bus in a bit of forward travel upon lifting, and then rearward again upon lowering. While hard to judge at the angle pictured, it looks like there is enough of an offset so that when the Bus moves rearward slightly upon lowering back down, the front beam would rest in the cradles, as would the rear torsion tube on its cradles. Does that make any sense?

There also appears to be a leadscrew down the middle, which looks to be for actuating the two lifting arms.

Just my two cents based on what I see. Of course, I could have it ALL wrong. Smile
