  • Patent number: 4175763
    Abstract: A vehicle comprises a frame, wheel carriers spaced longitudinally of the frame, and wheels on the carriers. A suspension system supports the frame on the carriers with connections between the frame and the carriers allowing relative rocking movement of the frame and each carrier about an axis extending generally longitudinally and centrally of the vehicle. Linkages between the carriers on opposite sides of the axis each comprise bell cranks having a first arm interengageable with the respective carrier and a second arm, and a tension link interconnecting the second arms, adapted to effect relative rocking movement in one direction of one carrier and the frame on relative rocking movement of the other carrier and the frame in the opposite direction, and vice versa.

  • Patent number: 4044428
    Abstract: A clamp for clamping a conduit to a support, the clamp accommodating any conduit having an outer diameter within a specified range of diameters. The clamp includes a pair of clamping straps, one for each side of the conduit and each strap has a stem portion having ears engageable with the channel, an intermediate portion having a window or cutout therein with bridge portions on opposite sides of the window, and an outer end portion. The outer ends of the straps are bolted together so that upon the ends of the straps being drawn together, the bridge portions of the straps conform to and grip portions of the outer surface of the conduit. The window, the bridge portions and the ears of the straps are so structured that the tensile strength of the bridge portion only slightly exceeds the strength of the ears.
