Default Shepherds Crook for UC

I am looking for a shepherd's crook (track tensioning bar) for a universal carrier. Reproductions are welcome. Any leads would be appreciated! Thanks!

Is your carrier an early model with the brackets on the front plate for stowage? If not, then just the regular adjusting cam and bar might be the better choice for you. Repros are (or were) available from John Bizal at midwest military.

I have made the shepherds crook before. You just need a suitable length of 1" square bar and lots of heat. I simply matched mine to the previously mentioned stowage brackets.

Rob, thanks! I have a MKI* and would like to put the shepherds crook on the front slope. I am missing this particular tool and the brackets that hold it in place. It is not beyond my capability to make one.The mounting brackets seem to be easy enough. I donít have any dimensions other than what you just sent (1Ē square bar). I can work from photos to layout the exact dimensions. It just takes time and patience. Any advice would be welcome such as the diameter of the large curve. Thanks!
