Re: dual high paint color?

I checked six dual-high trans I have, one in a 20,000 mile original truck, and the only color I found on any of them was black. I can't believe any manufacturer would paint the inside of a gear case knowing the paint could possibly loosen and go through the bearings and such. My guess the paint was ...

Re: Dump bed hoist color

Matt, I'd say that since dump bodies were supplied by aftermarket companies they probably could be painted any way the customer wanted. I painted my Anthony dump body to match the cab color, but the subframe and frame mounted mechanicals black. A note on your earlier post about your Wood body. Accor...

Matt, Hydraulic oil AW46 is all we've used for years in our dump truck fleet.

Re: AA Trivia

Just wanted to add some more information on the 1932 Ford built trucks. According to George DeAngelis and Edward Francis book, The Early Ford V8, the Model "B" engine numbers started on November 29, 1931 with number 5,000,000. The 4-cylinder cars used a "AB" prefix to the number for cars and the tru...

Hershey 2018

Just a note to those guys that usually stop by my spaces at Hershey to say hi. Although the spaces in the Chocolate field are still in my name, I really moved to the Green field at spaces GBC 32,33,34 where I have a little more room. If I'm not there I'm probably out shopping. My phone number is on ...

Re: Erie wheels

Hello Rick, I'm also looking for some wedges for my Erie Wheels. I was going to check with a foundry I used before about casting me some new ones. Mine don't have the "Erie" name on them though and may be about 1/4" shorter than the one you have pictured. On the back side of the wedge mine have the ...

Re: Driveshaft bearing

If you check the August 1929 Service Bulletins, it describes the spline change on the driveshaft and the different u-joint that is needed. The new splines are shallower than the old splines and are squared at the bottom of the grooves instead of being rounded. The old style driveshafts can be used w...

Re: How to install a WARFORD in a 28 AA

The Warford made to use behind a 3-speed has a six spline input shaft. These used the standard u-joint to connect the two. The one for use behind the four speed has a ten spline input shaft, a special adapting gear to fit over it, a special coupling to fit the outer spline of the adapting gear that ...

Re: How to install a WARFORD in a 28 AA

First off, there were different input spline sizes between a '28-'29 Warford and a '30-'31 Warford. The '28-'29 Warford was made to use behind a 3-speed. The coupling shaft was just removed and the Warford installed using the original U-joint. Since the four-speed transmission is a little longer and...

Re: hyatt roller bearings. do they run hot?

Check the Ford Service Bulletins. My den is being remodeled and my books are packed away so I can't give you the exact date they addressed the addition of a extra grease fitting in the torque tube. It gives the exact measurements of where to put it. I think it was sometime in '30 though. Later torqu...

Re: Dropping out of 4th

Make sure the spacing washer (part #7063) is on the front of the mainshaft too. Often these get forgotten or lost. The Model A three speed didn't use one of these so some rebuilders don't realize that one belongs there. Without this washer the mainshaft can move back and forth too much helping to di...

Re: Power Take Off

When you mount a PTO to any transmission you want to check the backlash between the PTO driven gear and the transmissions driving gear. The backlash should be .006 to .012 between the gears. Do not just use the gasket that comes with your gasket kit. PTO mounting gaskets come in several different th...

Re: 28/29 brake hub

Cast drums can be cut on a lathe, but steel drums like most original A and AA used were pressed steel. To true up a pressed steel drum they should be ground on a drum grinding machine. The machinist was right, it can take around four hours to do one. I found an old truck brake drum grinding machine ...

Re: 1931 AA transmission has a BB-7222 tower ?

Somebody probably had the same problem you had with your original transmission tower with the worn out trunion pins. They simply put a BB tower on their '31 transmission. The shift rails and interlocks should be the same. One exception though in the early four speeds. A February 1930 Service Bulleti...
