Brake Linkage Orientation

Hi, I have not been able to find the answer to which way the brake rods go in my 1931 AA. As you know, the rods have a fixed eye at one end and an adjustable clevis at the other end. Snyders says all the clevises go to the front of the vehicle (rear rods have clevises on the cross shaft and front ro...

Re: #6 Cross Member

Hi mikeg, The cross members I made are for the 88-A d3 platform bed. According to Neil's info on the forum, the d3 version is correct from mid-1928 to 2/1931. Attached is a picture from the AA-forum showing an original 88-A d3 platform. If you are interested in a set, please let me know. With the se...

Re: #6 Cross Member

HI Scott & Mac, I do not have a solution for the AA-88141 in terms of a repro. I am going to reuse the ones I took off my original cross member that I used as a pattern to make the repro. I can make the #6 cross member which would consist of the cross member, the inner shelf, and the 4 stake pockets...

Re: #6 Cross Member

Hi Slavalley, We should talk! I have just made a full set of the six 88-A d3 platform cross members. I just need to rivet on the brackets and rivet them to the side members. Here are pictures of 3 of them (#1, #3, #6). If you are interested, I could run a full set or just the #6 (back) one for you, ...

Re: Spindle play

Hi, Not sure if anyone else has had to replace their king pin thrust bearings (AA-3123), but I initially had a hard time finding them. There is no currently made replacement that I could find. I was able to get a very good original Ford pair, and I also bought a set made in Germany (eBay: https://ww...

Rear U-joint Rebuild

Hi All,

Is there a rebuild kit for the rear u-joint (AA-7090) on the 2-piece drive shaft available?

There was a post in Nov 2019 that referred to using modern parts with need bearings to rebuild it, but I could not find that post.

Spindle play

Hi,

I cannot find the spec for how much play is acceptable for the front wheel spindle to move up and down on the king pin.

I have about 0.007” spindle play. Is that within spec or do I need a shim?

Thanks
Dave

Re: Engine front support question

Forgive this question, but the judging standards refer to a black enameled castle nut and cotter pin.

So it was painted black or was there a special electro-finish?

Thanks.

So the top version was original and the Service Bulletins reflect upgrades?

Engine front support question

Hi, What is the correct engine front support? The parts in the top of the picture with the double spring were the pieces I removed when I disassembled the truck. The parts in the bags are what I bought from Snyder’s as a front engine mount kit with 3 individual springs and a spring plate. Thanks Dave

Hi,

I notice in the picture that you have some rims on the floor. I am looking for the late 30 early 1931 rims.

I assume those are staying with your truck, but would you happen to have any other nice ones for sale?

Thanks,
Dave

Re: 88A flat bed hold down hardware

Hi,
I have the same 88A flat bed with the metal spacers, not wood.
Snyder's sells them if you need them.
Any chance you have an extra short forged u-bolt?
Thanks,

Correct Wheel for a January 1931 Truck

Hi, I know this must have been discussed before, but I could not find the exact answer so here goes. What is the correct factory installed wheel for a January 1931 AA? https://aafords.com/aa-chassis/aa-1000-wheels/#w Would it be the AA-1015-C d4 version (from January 1931 - end of production) or the...
