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...

Re: aftermarket AA 1928-1929 wheels

Try Elliot Brown. His phone number above. I'll see him at the end of September at a flea market if he brings the wheels. I'm in RI and North Haven is an island off the coast of Maine. Not really handy. Best, Ed Hayslip

Re: First AA

Long runningboards were discontinued in July 12,1929 (7-24-29 Indianapolis Service Letter page 2) Your truck was probably an express. You'll need to replace the 1928-mid 30 headlight bar with the curved 1930-1931 style as shown on your car in the photo. Nice truck. Best, Ed

Re: Hello

The dual wheels on the back suggest this truck is an early 1930. Also the U bolts on the rear spring have the nuts on the bottom, a 1929 running change.

Re: 28 Windshield info

Snyder's Model A parts list A37323/24-AR called Model A Top Clamping Bracket. With a pair of these maybe a header of wood or plexiglass could be added to the top of your windshield. A view of these parts are on Snyder's online catalogue. Best, Ed
