Worm Drive - Worm Thrust Bearing Lubrication?

For the worm drive axle, there was a rear axle housing cap (AA-4190) which had a fitting to allow lubrication of the worm thrust bearing (AA-4696). The cap's initial design had a pipe plug fitting as shown in the attached photo. It was the same as TT-1004. It was used to lubricate the worm thrust be...

can anyone tell me the shift pattern on my 28/29 Warford? It is a backwards h pattern and seems to be opposite of the model T Warfords.
I found this - it might help.

Re: Rear window glass

I'm in need of the rear window glass measurements for the '29 AA if anyone has them? The photo is from the May 1928 Service Bulletin. Note - I believe this is correct for the 82-A closed cab with high rear window. I suggest you make a pattern out of plywood and verify it works for the cab with the ...

Brought home a 1928 AA Express, from Eagle Creek, Or. Need the scale weight, for the state of Washington. Which publication? I can't locate it.
I found pages in a 1930 "Ford Truck Sales Manual" attached. This should help get close to the weight.

Re: Removal of rear brake camshaft bushing assembly

Thanks for the great photo Neil. Yes, it is the rear brake cam shaft that won't budge. And the cam is removed then? The bushing which the shaft turns in is brass and I don't think it is being reproduced. I suggest you use a driver which is slightly smaller than the shaft diameter along with a heavy...

Re: Removal of rear brake camshaft bushing assembly

I cannot get this assembly to rotate. I've soaked it in solvent. I've heated it and tried tapping it out but it won't budge. Any tips on removing it? So, there is a brake cam shaft bushing, rear brake cam shaft, and rear brake cam. There is no assembly? It looks like you have removed the rear brake...

Re: Help

The wheelbase is 131 1/2 and by the serial number on the engine,L315925 it was produced in 8/1928. That is a nice link in your signature. An original engine id would have an AA prefix. Consequently, the L315925 is just a restamped number and can not be used to determine anything as far as a date. T...

AA Identification

I picked this truck up for a friend, He only wants the body and he wants me to sell the chassis. I might keep it as it has been gone through and a lot of work has been done to the Chassis and engine. I really don't know what I have and was wondering if this truck is known to any of the members. I p...

1931 Paint Schemes

Does anyone know if Ford built AA's in '31 with custom paint jobs? In addition to the contrasting color of the fenders/running boards/rain skirts, would it be period correct if there was two tone colors on the hood/cowl/cab or accent colors for the trim? If the answer is yes, a reference to some pi...

For now I plan on leaving finish as is. Regarding screws - I tried the #12 screw and head was way to small. Picked up #14 and #16 screws today and size 16 seams to be the right size.
You could show pictures of you skid strips. They are likely modified from original based on what I have seen.

Re: Express bed boards

Putting bed wood in and I need some wood screws for a couple of spots in the bed strips that go into the wood rail. Does anyone know the modern equivalent size of these screws? As most of the wood had rotted away on bed I was able to salvage almost all original bolts with exception of these screws....
