Re: Assembly order?

Hi folks, just getting ready to bolt stuff back together on my truck and am trying to figure out what goes on first, does the three speed warford bolt up to the frame then engine/transmission goes in, or can I drop in the engine/transmission then attach the warford after, I'm just not sure if there...

Re: Running board support bracket color

I'm painting the fenders and running boards on my '31. The color of these parts is not the traditional black. The frame will be black. My question regards the color of the brackets that connect the running boards to the frame. Are these L shaped brackets painted the color of the running board, or t...

Re: Top wood replacement

When removing my old wood I found a mastic/tar substance between the wood and metal. Is this original? Is it necessary? It is original and necessary if your cab will ever be in the weather or washed 8) Fit all the wood first. I used roofing tar on the final installation and cleaned up excess. Every...

Re: 29 express spare wheel mount.

Wow - that is great. An original carrier for a 1929 AA express is about impossible to find. Let us know how the tire fits once the express body and running board are installed.

Re: Axles too long?

Hub caps will not clear the axles -to long. The rear end was disassembled to install inner seals but axles were what came out of it. I believe I have enough room to cut 1/4 inch off nut and axle and then re-drill a hole for cotter pin. I would try the shim fix I mentioned above before cutting the a...

I will try and install some hub caps tonight. I was worried the rear end went together wrong.
FYI - If you assembled the rear axle from other axles, then the worm drive without emergency brakes had longer axles than the worm drive with emergency brakes.

Re: Axles too long?

I put some wire wheels on a August 29 AA with a worm gear rear end and I noted that the axle and axle nuts stick out of the rim about 1/4 inch on both sides. Anyone know possible cause? I checked several of my 28/29 rear axles which have the steel spoke wheels and the axles are out further than the...

Only the piece that is riveted to the gas tank is still there. Can I weld something to this piece to make a bracket? I haven...

Re: Speedo cable

Now I am confused. I didn't want a new casing and can't find the other end of the cable, so I can't measure mine. My truck is late '29. I see various cable repair options but none have the keyed end I need. Ideas? FYI - Ford's initial part names were "speedometer cable" = the outer part and "speedo...

Does anyone have details/instructions of how to sew material on the '29 sun visor? Thanks. ron
It takes a special sewing machine setup. I suggest that you talk with an upholstery shop and see what they say regarding the equipment needed. Some details of the one I had sown are attached.

Re: Looking for some advice on AA trucks

One question I have is on the inside of the back cover, there's an Express bed with high sides on it. Any of those survive? I actually like the shorter Express bed, but was curious after seeing that. Alan That is the 242-A Heavy Duty Express - few survivors - more at http://aafords.com/open-bodies/...
