I only know the siderod was found down the embankment many years ago. It does have J1 and the inspection dates stamped into it. Someone tried to remove the bronze bearing while it was there because it has chisel marks and pieces chipped from the bearing. They got the brass grease fitting. It must weigh close to 300 lbs and would be 5 feet if it was straight.
