Re: King pins

Just curious, anyone know why A has thrust bearing on top and AA on bottom? Old one ton Chevys and GMCs I used to work on had them on bottom like AA. (Sorry not a very good picture) Good question, pretty sure they can be installed either on top or on the bottom (I think I've done both) but as you s...

Re: Spring Bushings

Filing by hand seems like it would be almost impossible to get it completely round again. Any info the tool or where the picture came from? Searching Perch tool does not result in anything useful that I found. The picture came from this web sight, I think the tool changed hands over this sight, I w...

Re: Spring Bushings

I welded mine over head and filed them, not as easy as welding them inverted but I didn't have to take the truck apart to do it. You could remove them and have a machine shop bring them back to spec then bolt them back on with high grade bolts, getting them off is a challlenge. perch tool.jpg or you...

Re: Steering worm removal.

I've heard good things about the f150 boxes but If you stick with the original consider a shortened pitman arm, hardly noticeable from the original but makes for more responsive steering, i guess the theory being one needed all the leverage they could get for unpaved rutted roads, it is one of the f...

Re: Warford Packing

I've been working on my Warford and would like some input on the packing. On the parts list it shows two pieces of packing (#2048) specified for the rear support (#2044).

Re: So whos headed to IOLA in 2 weeks?

I can't think of too many better ways to spend the day roaming a good swap meet. I believe this cab is an unaltered original (except for the roof), check out this gas tank, I wonder if the writing is from the factory.(maybe a repair?) lots of anti squeak/"friction" tape and even rubber washer behind...

Re: 1929 AA tanker

The AA truck is a 1 1/2 ton truck; that's 3000 pounds load. A gallon of fuel oil weights 8.2 pounds. Divide it into 3000 gives you roughly 366.
Don't forget to and one thousand pounds if you have dual wheels.

Re: Finally acquired my '31 AA!

From what I have been told is that it hasn't been ran in over a year and last needed a rolling start to get it started. Thoughts on what that might be? Any info from the pics you might have is greatly appreciated. Ryan, Great looking truck you've got there! and to think it was your grandfather's, h...
