Re: pics.....

I know that technology changes in 4 1/2 years. Why can’t I take a pic with my phone and post it here? It keeps saying file too big. My phone is my computer. I have questions to ask you all, but it’s no use asking without showing pics of the problem.

Re: Canadian AA fire truck

I guess there is no need for a horn when you have a massive siren under it.
That is a great looking fire truck.

Re: 3 speed shifter

I'll take some pics and post them here this weekend. I'm sure it is factory painted black. The parking brake is also black. It is mounted on the tower at the front.The ratchet that the pawl goes against is different also. One has 4 teeth and the other has 5 teeth.

3 speed shifter

For my 1928 AA, is the shifter and park brake lever black or chrome? I have one of each available to use. I am guessing that the commercial trucks were dressed down. Would the black one be the correct color?

Re: Branford Canadian Cabs

I am understanding that not all the trucks were made with a metal back wall. My truck has a metal back, but a parts truck I have access to only has (had) a wooden back wall. I can take pics also, if you would like. Markt knows more about them than I do.

Unfortunately, I don't think those are the same caps as what I need. The ones I need are specific to Canadian AA trucks. The ones I need are posted a couple of comments up the page.

Re: Newbie AA

That cab is not a Canadian brantford cab. But it looks like it is in good condition. Someone else will have to tell you what exactly what it is.

Re: Newbie AA

Welcome to the group. Where abouts are you located at? As noted above, there are a lot of differences between the Canadian and US built trucks. What kind of cab do you have? I have a Brantford cab on my 28 AA. What year is your truck? What type of wheels do you have?

Transmission differences

I am working on bringing a 1928 AA back to life. It came with two transmissions (one with the multi disc clutch plates, and one without) but no engine. I have bought an engine for it and it is at the rebuilders place. We hope to take the head and oil pan off next week to see inside for the first tim...

Headlight bar lengths

I have two different length headlight bars with my AA. The one with the headlights attached is older looking. I have new looking bar with nothing attached to it. I can't seem to find any measurement online for the proper one. The total widths are 41 5/8"and 42.5 inches. Which one is correct?
