I do not think the arms were stamped, I do know the blue band say s Overdrive on it.

Wore out three sets of tires already!
I am thinking that those preformed bendix round brake straps are correct for the kick back hubs also

Mare sure your hub is an actual Overdrive before replacing an arm, I've seen a few fakes now where stripes have been repainted or they just have the wrong internals. A true blueband will have the cog driver move independently of the smooth shell driver. The yellow and red band internals have the cog mounted to the smooth shell driver and another driver that's not visible due to the dust cover.
I wish I had taken pictures now, but I've been looking at stingray date stamped arms. So far I've had some 68s. I'll add pics of the one I still have later...
The replacement arms have no date stamps on the back and I haven't found date stamps prior to 68, but I've not been able to examine everything that I'd consider original either.

An AD or KC serial Stingray if I remember right, Blue band Overdrive stamped A 8. The guy said he didn't want the 2 speed, lol so I traded him 2 regular coaster wheels for it.

And I can't find pictures of it, but a wheel I serviced and put an index spring in for dad was off of a 68 MiniTwin. It was a yellow band with an offset arm stamped H 8, also was a side stamp S2.

I have some other Bendix 70 and 76 hubs with stamps on the backs of the arms, but I haven't a clue what they came off of. Curious to see what other guys have come across for stamps too...
