Re: AAC Hub Caps

The Ford Motor Co takes a dim view of people using the Ford name on items for sale. To use the "Ford name" permission must had from the company and a fee paid. Those great Ford shop coats are no longer available as the manufacturer could not handle this fee. I recommend checking with the company bef...

Re: 1929 AA tanker

Ford determined that the truck with the flat bed and racks could handle 1 1/2 ton load. Presumably a tank would replace the flat bed so a comparison of the two body weights might be considered. Don't wish to flog a dead horse here. Best, Ed

Re: 1929 AA tanker

The AA truck is a 1 1/2 ton truck; that's 3000 pounds load. A gallon of fuel oil weights 8.2 pounds. Divide it into 3000 gives you roughly 366.

Re: WTB rear spring top bushing holder

When putting this back together don't forget this has to rotate. I've seen examples so tight no movement can occur. No wonder the ride is hard. I've heard arguments that this isn't suppose to rotate; my answer is why the grease fitting. One should be able to rotate the outside flat washer by hand.

Re: AA mail truck or other closed wood bodies

Aldie Johnson wrote a book which includes measured drawings. See postalas.org. These drawings were provided by the government to the various suppliers of mail truck bodies.

Re: Worm Drive - Worm Thrust Bearing Lubrication?

Since the AA worm drive axle is a continuation of the TT version a look at page 12 of the April 15, 1919 Ford Service Bulletins is advised. The article is entitled " Lubricating the truck differential". No mention of the housing cap. The Service Bulletins of Sept. 1929 page 375 lists the capacity on...
