Re: I need a six by six u joint.

Hi, I reread your question and reply, as well as looked at the cross member that you have. I replied above with too many words! You are mating a Model A three speed transmission, with the underdrive, then to the Model A car drive shaft. You will use 2 STOCK Model A car x joints to do this correctly....

Re: I need a six by six u joint.

Not all pictures are transferring. Picture of remains of Mixing and matching x joint parts. Most of those early x joints are worn out so I use the newer ones. Notice the flanges on the cross member in some of the pictures. You can notice my 8 1/2" driveshaft extension in some of those pictures. I we...

Re: I need a six by six u joint.

Some of my pictures did not transfer, so here goes. A view of the other end of the 4 speed to Model A x joint. the front of the 29 cross member looking aft. How I attached the rear AA truck springs to the A axle. I used old fire hose to shim the space. Lastly the 4 speed to the underdrive connection...

Re: I need a six by six u joint.

Here is a comparison of the stock AA x joint and the special take apart AA one. You should not need this long one. It does not belong in any bell/clamshell assembly. It was only for use from the 4 speed transmission to the intermediate shaft, no torque bell.

Re: I need a six by six u joint.

Hi, Your cast iron cross member is just a support for an intermediate driveshaft for a frame extension. It cannot take a thrust from the torque tube loading without shattering into many pieces. You need to install a 28/29 AA cross member. The cross member needs to be an exact distance from the engin...

Re: I need a six by six u joint.

Hi, That diamond shaped dog sleeve mount on the rear of the underdrive is not for adustment purposes, because the X joint must centerline exactly with the centerline of the clamshell/bell stuff. That sleeve mount bolts to the 28/29 AA crossmember which is a fixed distance from the engine mounts (or ...

Re: I need a six by six u joint.

I don't think that you are providing enough information on what your intentions are. Putting the underdrive transmission in a Model A chassis is sort of strange unless you are making a slower doodlebug or trying to turn the underdrive around to make an overdrive. It is WAY too tall to make an overdr...

aluminum timing gear side cover

I have this AA truck engine with an aluminum timing gear side cover. I have collected 4 or 5 more of these covers over the years, in a box somewhere in my shop; lost forever. Anyone know what the intent of these are? Are they Ford or are they an aftermarket device? The only thing that makes any sens...

Re: Rear axle swap

Hi, I put Model A car axles under a 29 chassis with late 30 sheetmetal and early express box. Extended the driveshaft torque tube about 8 1/2". 4 speed, 28 underdrive behind that. 7.00 X 19 tires on stock Model A rims. weighs 800# less than with stock axles. 40's hydraulic brakes. Will do 55 mph wit...

Re: First AA

Hi, nice truck! That headlight bar may be original. I bought a late 30 open cab AA farm truck that was kept indoors all of it's life, no rust and mostly stock with the exception of a FABCO frame extension and spring set. It had the 28/29 straight headlight bar with the painted steel 30/31 headlights...

Re: AA serial #

I have a late 30 AA complete truck, no rust at all, with no frame number! I also have a Model A frame with no rust and no frame number. I think that some frames did not get a stamp, maybe the fellow doing the stamping was pulled away to do something else from time to time?

Re: 4 speed in 1929 aa

Hi, the three speed transmissions on the 28/29 trucks were not really strong enough for 1 1/2 ton trucks, especially when it was common for users to habitually overload these poor trucks. In 1939, if your three speed transmission or even a simple clutch failed, it would be easy enough to upgrade to ...
