Re: Front spring perch question

A "farmer fix" for an out of round wishbone ball was to put a big flat washer in there to tighten things up. It does work.

Re: Tires

I bought mine at Universal Tire but all the Model A vendors can probably get them.

Re: Steering Gear

What Bob C said....look at swaps and avoid Ebay. $25.00 to $50.00 tops.

Re: Steering Gear

A and AA are the same. The 2 tooth sectors are better in my mind. Don't pay a lot as you are going to end up rebuilding anyway. Just get one so you can move it around while you try to get it started.

Re: New project, need advice

Nice little project and you are going about it the right way in my mind. get what you going and stopping safely and then start building what you want. I saw your other post about steering gears and the first thing I would would be to buy a complete steering column with wheel etc and install it so yo...

Re: Rear fenders

Keep in mind that the width is different as well. The A fenders are wider than the AA.

AA fenders are available...expensive but they are out there. The passenger sides are the hardest to find.

Re: frame paint removal

To answer your question I would need to know the type of paint that is on it now and what you want to put on it. If it's factory paint then just scuff it up real good and go from there.

Re: Installing a 30-31 hood and radiator shell on a 28

The deuce grille is always an improvement on any vehicle. Like I said in my earlier reply you needed to change to the 30 31 front cross member as the 28 29 is higher on the radiator mounts and it shows up on your truck. Your radiator is higher than your cowl. It's a little thing and if it doesn't bo...

Re: Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

Now that you replaced the front pulley and star nut were you able to turn it over without the starter installed??? I don't think you have a seized engine but you need to eliminate the minor stuff one at a time. If it doesn't turn in neutral with the starter out you have other problems.

Re: Finally acquired my '31 AA!

I just noticed that old GE refrigerator next to the newer one with a sign on it. I have one just like it and it's still working. I keep my beer in it. The blue light still works when you open the door. Can't beat R-12 for coldness.

Re: Finally acquired my '31 AA!

That may be a grain box on the back of your truck. The motor is from a car as AA's started with an AA stamped on the engine. Your serial number is stamped on the frame rail under the drivers side cowl. Also I am going to curious how Illinois accepts your title transfer. They voided out a bunch of pr...

Re: Flathead V8 Installation

Bob C is correct. The 8BA's are a real tight fit and need quite a bit of massaging to get into the A engine compartment. 8BA's are 49 thru 53. A 59A is a little shorter and is easier to install but it is still a lot of work. these are not bolt ins by any means. You are going to have to make new fron...
