Re: frame paint removal

I would think you could do a pretty serviceable job with a wire brush and putty knife, but it would be tedious as the AA's have a lot of square inches to them. Power grinder with cupped wire and knotted wire wheels would help speed it up some too. I had my two daughters help me out with mine and we ...

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

Sound like the starter switch is allowing to ground out. Have you remove the switch for inspection? There is a card board insulator that prevents the switch copper contact from touching the switch housing. Should also be something to isolate the stater switch rod. After reconnecting the battery to a...

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

I think you are going to want to get that bendix gear moving again. Try knocking it back with a hammer and screw driver by tapping it on the gear teeth. If its jammed on something it may stay meshed with the engine which it won't like at all. Once you got it moving freely, clean the helix well but d...

Re: '28 AAR- How rare?

Nice looking truck! Too bad about the painted wheels. Yeah the opened ended Bumper is unusual too.
As for rare, I have never seen one as set up before.

Re: Emergency Resuscitation Of A Dead Engine

No Hammer involved but a good emergency fix for a farmer wife might be a broken fan belt. Truck over heats and stalls out. She cools it down with a bucket from the well and sacrifices her best nylons to fashion a makeshift Fan belt. (It does work for a while)

Re: Rear fenders

Re: Flatbed Board Finish Options.

I had similar feelings when I did the deck on the 31. I didn't want them shiny as I planned to use the truck. I did not want them to rot out either. I did not like the look of the Fir timbers as the were a bit too light. I stole and idea from Chip Foose and stained the grain with some cheap black sp...

Re: Trafficators - Anyone installed these on their trucks

While I find the trafficators are a neat historical feature, I don't think they will do much more than confuse today's drivers even more that they are. Spend your dough on some significantly bright lights and indicators in the form the cottagers will understand on sight. Not saying you can't put the...

Re: Looking for Information

Interesting Truck! Tell me is it an optical illusion or are the hood louvers at a slant?
I am digging the military style wheels as well. What still of rear end does it have?

Re: Looking for some advice on AA trucks

Allan, I would make one suggestion: find a man who ones one and start a conversation. These trucks aren't for the timid, everything in the chassis is bigger and more robust than the A models. I have a dually flat deck because it just looks more like a truck. Oh, that and the fact express bodies are ...

Re: new member

Hello Allan, and nice truck you have there. Tell me how and where did you find this unit? Was she local to you on the Sunshine coast?
