Re: FAQ for AA dummies?

Toshik, if you are shopping for the right truck to use, try for the four speed with the High speed rear end. It will get up to 45 mph pretty quickly and almost 50 on the down hill. I had to alter my seats to fit and I am 6'2" and 236 Lbs. Use my truck every chance I get hauling what ever, where ever...

Re: How much weight?

Can't say I have been that heavy for sure, but I have had serious weight on it and it never had a problem with it. I moved my father's collection of parts in three loads with my high racks installed and loaded engines, rear ends, springs, and transmissions and axles and well...you name it. Truck wor...

Re: Finding reverse gear and floppy gear shift

One thing I've noticed is when cold the trans may be sticky to find reverse.
I usually give the engine a good rev up and it slides in no problem. After the trans lube is warmed up I have no trouble at all.

Re: Fluid capacities?

If memory serves me, yes I believe so. That big rear pumpkin has a lot of room in it.

Pretty sure I used up most of three quarts of 600W when I filled mine up to the top plugs on both.

Re: Spring Bushings

Hand filing was only done on the final stages and it wasn't difficult as long as you have a new replacement bushing to use as a guide. I started at the out board edge and file until the bushing fit and then worked all the tight areas until the bushing could be slid right up to the pivot mount. after...

Re: Spring Bushings

The spring pivots can wear a heck of a lot on the bottom. I flipped my frame up-side down and welded and filed them back to round to fit the new bushings. It took some time but I don't believe they'll ever have to be done again in my lifespan.

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...
