I have a USA 3 bell that’s 18.5 in diameter doesn’t have the upright. I’ve located a American Casting Co Birmingham AL 3 upright. I think it will work based on measurement but I’m not 100%. First question is are all #3 bells the same. Second question…who made the “USA” bell?
I was told thise USA bells were made in a foundry in Alabama in the 70s and 80s. They made a lot of them..They used the Ross Meehan type cranks but looked a lot like CS Bells of Ohio firm. They use to be plentiful but getting more scarce every day….
