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

Got her up in the air, Man, those steelies are heavier than the budd wheels on the dually! I toss on a wire wheel , and oh, no! It won't go all the way on! I pull it away for a look, and decide to pull the hub cover off, and, aha! Perfect fit! So, I really don't mind not having caps for the wheels....

Re: AA 1015C d4

I purchased two 20" wheels that are slightly different than AA wheels. The center hole dia. is 5-5/8, one inch larger and the ctr-ctr mtg holes are 4-5/8, 5/8 inch further apart than the AA. Otherwise they are identical. Anyone know what they fit? You can find AA wheel dimensions information at htt...

Re: rear view mirror and california registration

Thanks for the info everyone. Yeah i should have been more clear--the interior rear view is what the CHP is questioning. Bubby, The Ford's terminology "rear view mirror" means inside mirror. So, you was clear to my way of thinking. While I agree with what others are saying - you should not be requi...

Re: rear view mirror and california registration

In trying to register my long owned and long parked 1929 AA that the DMV has no record of. (thats another story) The Calif. Highway Patrol says i need a rear view mirror. I pointed out that they were not factory issued. They say I need one in order to register the truck. Rather then fight with them...

Hinge Installed Mirror Brackets

I bought one of these, it's pretty darn good. you'd have to locate and drill your own holes. FYI - The hinge installed mirror brackets fit the 82-B closed cab hinge (1.71" height approximately). The 82-A closed cab hinge is higher at 1.777" approximately. It might be possible to grind down the 82-A...

Re: differential gear ratio

Block one drum / wheel from turning. Mark the other drum / wheel. Clamp a vise grip to the end of the drive shaft and see how many turns it takes to rotate the marked wheel one full rotation. You can compute the gear ratio from that. FYI - You need to divide the number of drive shaft revolutions by...

Re: Place to post photos

Is there currently or has anyone overthought of a central location for posting photos of their AAs. I see so many cool looking trucks in people's avatars, however cannot really get a good look at all the details due to the small photo size. Thanks, Kieran Kieran, There are many photos of AA's on th...

Re: Wood hoist paint color

I have a Wood hoist and gravel box on my '31 AA. I'm repainting the entire truck, including the gravel box and hoist. Does anyone know what the original color is on the hoist (cylinder/pump and mechanical mechanism)? It appears on the mechanism there might be a faint light green color. Per the RGJS...

Re: 88-A platform Sills?

Makes sense cause a lot of the original AA trucks I've seen the AA88084 sits a little forward on the AA-88030 side sills. I've also noticed that on some 82-A cabs the rear sub frame cross member had 2 notches possibly for body stop AA-5122.(that another topic) Thanks again Neil Bob F Yes, the 82-A ...

Did a '29 frame have stamped steel running board brackets?
Running Board Brackets were converted from forged steel to stamped steel during the same time period for both the A and AA chassis (late 1928 to early 1929)
