    I'm a half-hour north of Peoria on the Illinois River, three hours from Chicago if you do the limit.

    The adjustables on my benches have 45703-50 stem casting numbers and 45707-50 bracket casting numbers.
    None have the cutaway stops, and although 'orphans', they worked fine with 3.5g tanks.
    The '65 Parts Book lists part number 45709-60 adjustable stem and bracket for '58 to *, and part number 45708-50A' trees for '58 to *.

    But it also lists adjustable bracket part number 45708-50B for '65.

    I would have thought the stem would be different, not the bracket.

    Cotton,
    Take a look at these pictures. Would these be a 65' swing-arm triple tree?

    I'd have to smell them, Chip!

    They look like '58 and later non-adjustable ('solo') trees with notched stops.

    Somebody else will have declare their exact production: notches and such...
