Re: Another AA lives

You've been working on this for quite a while. Glad that you were able to get the engine up and running again. That's always a good feeling. If you would like to email me a couple of pictures I can post them for you. I'll p.m. you my address. You've probably already done so but re-torquing the head ...

Re: Idaho requires vin check

If you find them under the bed I think that you would be the first to ever do so. I once found a second stamping of the identification numbers stamped on the inner right hand side of a Model A Coupe frame. Odds of that happening for you are unfortunately very slim. I think you will need to lift the ...

Re: Idaho requires vin check

It will be on the top of the frame to the left of where your left foot rests while driving. Unfortunately you will need to lift the cab and splash shield to see it. If you don't have much rust you might be able to lift things just enough to make a paper and pencil rubbing to get an impression of it....

Re: high speed rear ends

I think that you have a very early rear axle assembly. What does the speedometer housing on the drive shaft look like?

Re: high speed rear ends

Brian, you can jack up one rear wheel, put it in third gear and using the hand crank turn the engine over by hand. Count the number of rotations of the engine needed to make the wheel in the air go one full revolution. Just a little over 3 1/2 turns of the engine to one wheel rotation is good news. ...

Re: back fire seems to run lean

Glad you found where the problem is. Be sure to test the carburetor out after you get it cleaned up before setting it aside as a spare. I would be hesitant about adding in an inline filter. They can cause more issues than they solve. Check to see that you have a pencil filter in the tank fuel shut o...

Re: back fire seems to run lean

If choking it makes it run better then it is most likely that there is a chunk of crud in the carburetor. Pulling it apart and blowing it out is a good first step. If that doesn't help then a complete disassembly with a soak in carb cleaner is in order. Be sure to check your fuel filter and check th...

Re: Chronology of the 3 and 4 speed and under drive.

I'll take a go at it. Others please feel free to correct me with what I don't get right. The 28's and early 29's came with the three speed transmission the same as the cars. The dual high transmission was an option for the trucks with the high speed worm drive rear ends. In mid to late 29 the worm d...

Re: warford install, shift tower hole

The hole under the seat would be on the 28's and early 29's for the dip stick to check the oil level in the Dual High. Original surviving under the seat floor pans I've found are none too common. Finding a way to save it in tact as much as is possible would be a plus in my book.

Re: Maple floorboards

ModelAkid - Only one cutter bit is needed to make them. Just a single pass for the female. For the male it takes one pass on each side to cut it. Is a bit of a bugger to get the male centered, the right thickness and depth to make a joint that fits snug but can still slide. Considerable trial and er...
