Re: New project, need advice

The nice thing about the A and AA as they are fairly similar-the AA is just beefier. Might drop the pan first and clean out any sludge and flush the rad to make sure it is clean.

Re: New member with a question about non-factory parts

The heater is a Ford option at the time. How well they work is anyone's guess. If it even hooked up to the inside of the cab? If you want a heater I would install one of the cast iron ones. as far as the braces, I saw something mentioned about bracing a cab like that in really late 31 some where. Mike

Re: Can anyone tell me the shift speeds for the 4-speed?

This is how dad explained the 4 speed to me. Start engine, engage 1st gear, let out clutch peddle, truck moves, shift into 2nd. That granny gear with those steep gears will pull anything. You may want to start out in 2nd so you will be able to go more than two miles and hour before you shift.

Re: Help for the newbie

Hi Sean, Welcome, if you can work on an air cooled VW, then the Model AA truck should be no big deal, other than everything being English. The mechanics are about as complicated as your Chevy, with the obvious peculiar quirks to the AA design. Just remember everything on an AA is mechanical-no big d...

Re: Bed identification question.

Looks like a custom bed. Judging from the original metal.

Re: Original old Ford truck film advertising

The two bodies that I thought were really cool were the expanding motorhome body (I thought that was a modern invention) and the last truck/special delivery which had stained glass in the side panels.

Re: lights discharging 18- 20 volts

I have the exact same set up on my car and when I run with the lights on I discharge around -2 amps. Parking lights make the meter flicker but that is about it. No lights and I am charging around +8 amps or so.
