Re: AA Trivia

Good info... But which "auto show" was it first shown? And which style? ( Now this is truly useless trivia). :lol:

Re: Chronology of the 3 and 4 speed and under drive.

That is correct about driving a stake in the ground. My Dec. 28, has low speed worm with the 3 speed. And that is really slow.. But the good thing is that at a good idle speed in low and 2nd gear, it is perfect parade speed!! ( only silver lining in a low speed worm). :cry:

Re: PTO shims and shaft speed

counting the teeth is the sure way to know the gear ratio. Go with that. Shim so that the teeth just have clearance. Plastigage will do the trick.

AA serial #

I have a 28 AA and I am a bit confused on SN identification. Are all AA frame serial #s marked with a AA? Mine dates to Dec. 28. But dose not have The AA. May be a star instead? Any clarification would be appreciated..

No Hammer involved but a good emergency fix for a farmer wife might be a broken fan belt. Truck over heats and stalls out. She cools it down with a bucket from the well and sacrifices her best nylons to fashion a makeshift Fan belt. (It does work for a while)
Fish net??? :shock: :lol:

Re: Underdrive question-no don't want to run it backwards

Or !! Switch to the low speed worm drive rear end. 7:25 to 1, and then add a Utillity TT over under drive at the rear end. The standard under drive for an AA is the way to go. I have a three speed, with under drive and low speed worm. Parade walking speed is , 2nd gear, in under drive and medium idl...

Re: Emergency Resuscitation Of A Dead Engine

Electrical issues are there. A simple short or open circuit will stop one. Distributor rotor some how popping off. The top of the distributor is held on with two clips. If they would pop lose, the cover could lift up and the rotor jump off. This may happen because of the use of the hammer. then to f...

I built my own. Not that difficult. If you have an old part to copy. Or, I have patterns for my '28 if you would like to use one if it is the same as yours. Better yet, I have an extra one if you want it. I'm in Hamilton, Mi..

Re: overheating

Been there! On my '28 I fought this for a long time. Finally found out that what I thought was the proper 'water' level was too high. I cleaned the system several times to get the block clean, ( and the supposed clean radiator). I switched to 50% antifreeze to get the boiling pint higher, and added ...
