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: 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: differential gear ratio

You are looking for a tag on one of the diff bolts that reads 7-36 which should denote the 5.14 gear set for high speed.

Re: Mud Flaps for dual rear wheels.

I found conveyor belt works like a charm, also Ice rink mats is another good source for material. I mounted mine to the bed cross member behind the rear wheels and left about 4" clearance from the bottom to the ground.

Newer Drums

Have been looking for a source for newer drums to fit my 31 AA, but to no avail. Has anyone found anything to replace the rather overused drums?

Re: Side View Mirror Bracket AA-17698 (14-11/16" long)

I wish I had one to loan, two would be better. This is a problem on my truck, trying to see around the racks and what is behind. I wonder if a brass casting could be made up?
