Looking to buy a AA157 under platform wheel carrier for my 1928 82-A truck with 88-A platform. This version mounts completely to the underside of the platform.
FYI - You need an AA131 platform wheel carrier - not AA157. This might confuse some.

Re: 28 AA Front Spring Dimesions?

Would this crart also work for 30-31's ? I replaced some of mine with pasanger car rear leafs. Seams to work fine but now i can fine tune with help from your chart. My truck is a 29cab 1930 chassie. Actually your cab would be an 82-A and that is a 1927 through June 1930 cab. The 1930 -1931 front sp...

Re: 28 AA Front Spring Dimesions?

Thanks Neil, that is exactly the information that I need. I did not realize that the springs are slightly thinner in the centre. I will assemble the spring and re-check the measurements. I also read that it is good to grind a slight taper on the underside at the ends of each leaf so that they do no...

Re: 28 AA Front Spring Dimesions?

The attached drawings are based on Ford engineering drawings for the AA-5310, stock, 12 leaf front spring. The leaves are slightly thinner at the centers. So, only the outside edges of the leaves would make contact. I have seen early 1928 rear spring leaves with embossed Ford script in random locati...

Re: 31 hard top conversion

I'd like to convert the cab on my 31 82-A to a hard top and therefore eliminate the fabric top. I found a company that sells the sheet metal to fit inside the original top. It's my understanding the late model 31's had a hard top option from the factory. Does anyone know if the hard top requires th...

Re: 1931 Ford AA coupling shaft (long wheelbase)

Does anyone know what kind of spring (how long etc.) is supposed to go between the coupler shaft (with the funny looking female spline) and the spline gear on the transmission end? This is not the kind with the regular U joint The attached is the AA-4822 with dimensions provided by Bud Valerius a n...

Re: exhaust manifold to inlet pipe donut

Anybody know where to get the do-nut gasket from the exhaust manifold to the inlet pipe? The one in my '29 is shot. I remember years ago they had asbestos in them. The Model A catalogs I've looked at don't carry them. Maybe another year one will fit? FYI - The original Ford setup did not include an...

Re: 28/29 bevel gear high speed value

I have 28/29 high speed bevel gear (not the 30/31) complete with torque tube and speedometer gear. It is free and has good oil with no water. Just wondering if the rarity of these in high speed makes them more valuable. Based on my research, the bevel gear rear axle shown below was only released fo...

That's the cap for rim - I have all those but is there a dost/ water cap that goes on the hub flange under the spoked rim?
There is no cap listed for the hub flange. As shown above, the AA-1130 "wheel hub shell cap" is all that is listed.

Re: Putting Wire Spokes on the '28/'29

Anyone have picture of what the original cap looks like? FYI - These hub caps were snapped onto the wheels without the tabs being bent (unlike the A chassis hub caps). The tabs will break off if bent (and many show up that way). There were five different stampings for these 1928/1929 steel spoke wh...

Re: What was the original Ford finish for the AA truck shifter rod?

Thank you for your response. My goal is to restore my AA to be a fully functional driver I still want it to look right,as a Ford product. The shifter on my 31 model A station wagon is bright, nickel I think. I have 3 rusty AA truck shifters, I can’t tell if they were once bright like the car or not...

Re: Flatbed

Copy that! I've come up with some very convincing Frankensteins that give some old timers fits, but Henry was a frugal guy and these were just work trucks. My "29" is actually an early model '30 with a '29 body, rolled off the assembly line like that in June of 1930! FYI - All Ford commercial vehic...

Re: What was the original Ford finish for the AA truck shifter rod?

Did the 1930 Ford AA have a black painted shifter rod or nickel plate, cadmium plate? Quote from page E-44 of the RGJS: "The dipped, gloss black enamel finished lever length was 17-3/8" to 17-1/2" as a straight-line measurement between the gear shift lever spring seat (under the cap) and the bottom...
