I need to change the bolster on my 1956 Cub. I have been looking for a 1956 bolster but have not found one yet. I did find a 1953 bolster today that looks good and the price is right ($100). I have heard that the bolsters were made heavier after some point in the mid 1950's. Would the 1953 bolster have been made before this change?

From '52 thru the end of production, they have the same part number (350 886 R2). If there was any change of any significance, I believe they would have change the part number's revision (R#).
