1929 wire wheel hubcaps

I just listed nine wire wheel hubcaps on ePay. I lost my three AA fords in a fire, total loss, started by an idiot and a propane burner. Of course this low-life has nothing, no insurance. I rarely drove the trucks so had practically no insurance; so my loss. I put over 40 years in these trucks; 1930...

Re: worm drive drive shaft

You really don't need to replace the rear pin as long as the front pin is in place.

Red tubes

Just curious; when was the last red rubber inner tube? I wanted to know how old the Goodyear tube in my tire is.

Re: worm drive drive shaft

Make sure you don't use a gear oil with EP additives, it will destroy you bronze gear in no time.

Re: What happens when a flat occurs

When the rim lip and ring are in good shape there is no reason to fear these rims. That being said, years ago I connected a snap on connector to a six-foot hose connected to my inflator; then you can stand behind or to the side when you inflate the tire.

Re: oil for worm drive rear end

I use 600 w steam oil. Whatever you do DO NOT USE any oil with ep additives, this will destroy your bronze worm gear.

Re: POWER STEERING

Find a '73 Chevy power steering unit. These have a valve operated by the steering arm which activates the steering ram. You need to make a bracket for the pump and line it up with the water pump/fanbelt. You need to modify the linkage between the steering arm and the front spindle. Bolt the ram to t...

How much weight?

A few years ago I had a friend who used a '31 AA flatbed in his cement block plant. He would regularly load 15000 pounds and drive the blocks a few miles to delivery. The loaded bed sat squarely on the axles, the steering was a little squirrely and it took a couple blocks to start slowing down but t...

Re: Tires

High-pressure tires are compared to "low" pressure tires by doubling the last number and subtracting this from the first number; viz: 32x6 would be a six-inch would tire on a 20" RIM.

Re: Windows and window tint

I think the window tinting would look cool, along with dingle-balls hanging from the front window, lowered front end and a plastic Jesus staring out the front windshield.............
