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...

Re: AA Ford toe in

My 1931 Bear alignment book shows 1/32 toe in for 1928-29 AA's and 1/32 to 3/32 for the 1930-31's. The difference in these could be caused by the different caster specs. The caster for the 28-29 AA's is 1 degree and the 30-31 AA's is 3 1/2 degrees. The size of the rear tires could also make a differ...

Re: 28/29 bevel gear high speed value

One bad feature of these early style bevel gear rears is that the pinion shaft and gear is made as part of the drive shaft assembly. They did not use the splined coupling to attach the pinion shaft to the driveshaft. The torque tube is a different length also.

Re: 29 rear spring mount

First off, you will find that the rivets and rivet holes in the frame are not standard bolt hole sizes. The holes are larger that when the hot rivets are installed and squashed in place they conform to the hole size. If your going to use bolts you should ream the holes out to the next larger size so...

Re: 28 AA front axle

Ford sent out a Service Letter to their dealers and told them to check all AA trucks delivered before February 15th, 1929 to see if they were assembled with the Model A spindles and wheel bearings, and AA hub/drum assemblies that used these bearings. Originally the AA trucks also used the A axle and...

Re: HERSHEY show details

Kevin, just thought of something else that might save you money if you want to sleep in your truck. There is a Rest Area on I- 81 just south of the Rt 743 exit (the first Hershey exit) and at the next exit, Rt 39 (the second Hershey exit) there is at least two truck stops and a Perkins restaurant. B...

Re: HERSHEY show details

You're right Kevin, Hershey is the ONE. I haven't gone to Carlisle in quite a few years because there never seemed to be much old stuff there anymore. I don't think you can park overnight in the paid spectator parking lots. They have special lots for overnight parking for campers and such. I don't k...

Re: differential gear ratio

No, the Canadian Timken rear is completely different than the '30-'31 "AA" Timken used in the trucks in the US.

Re: differential gear ratio

The lower triangle in the picture (although upside down to read the letters in it) is the Timken trademark. The big "T" down the middle is for Timken, the "D" and "A" on either side of it is for Detroit Axles, and the "CO" beneath it is for Company. Can tell what the other triangle means.

Re: 28 AA worm drive rear castle nut washer

The axle nut washer was a special hardened washer to withstand the side thrust placed on it. A standard washer could possibly dish out, leaving the wheel hub get loose on the axle and work on the axle key. I read somewhere that they recommend to retighten the axle nuts at 500 miles to keep the hubs ...

Re: Wanted - speedometer drive gear

No, worm gears were not available in a 5.14 ratio.

I'll check my stock Jeff, I may have an extra 5.14 ratio.

Re: for sale 1932 AA

Engine numbers starting with 5,000,000 to 5,062,386 had a prefix of "AB" for passenger cars and "AAB" for trucks. This lasted about four months, till about April 1932. Starting with engine number 5,062,387 the prefix was changed to "B" for passenger cars and "BB" for trucks. I have one "AAB" chassis...

Hello Joe, I don't know where in Jersey you are, but I'm in Pennsylvania about an hour west of Phillipsburg right off of I-78. I probably could find you some good used steel drums. Usually front drums make the best candidates to reuse. I also have an old truck brake drum grinding machine that I can ...
