Re: 1928 29 Sparton Horn Mount Bracket

In my opinion,there is no way that that is a Model A horn. That may be why it does not fit

Re: Spring Bushings

Freezing the new bushings for a few hours before installing helps them go into the spring ends a little easier. They shrink a little bit. Have fun

Re: Spring Bushings

All bushings are available. I think I got all mine from Mike's A Fordable. Mac's and Snyders probably have them too. Make sure you clean out all your grease zerks before reassembly. Good luck

Re: overheating

It SEEMS as if advancing the timing has worked. Driven it a few miles and no overheating although it is a little cooler today in the north woods. 70 degrees. Thanks for all the suggestions

Re: overheating

Had engine apart during rustoration process. Head was cracked and replaced with different one that I had magnafluxed. New head gasket of course. I visually inspected block and looked good. Oil is clean. Coolant is clean and does not smell. This truck last ran in 1954 before I got it running in 2017....

overheating

Having trouble with overheating. Starts to boil over in just 2 miles down the road. Installed a used reproduction radiator that seemed to be very clean. My father who has had Model A's all his life said "that's a 29 for you". Claims 29's have that problem. Would a 4 blade fan help? Any other suggest...

Re: Film footage of AA's

Great film. I never knew campers had push outs back then! Looks like these trucks could take quite a bit. Maybe I don't need to baby mine so much. FRANK J

Re: Truck progress photos

I too give Dave Alder credit for that wax tip. I'm doing a 29 barn find and that waxed patina is beautiful. I've also got 28 spokes on mine and what a pain that was. Two hours per wheel! I waxed the rust and what was left of any paint on the body and it all looks great! Good luck with yours. Should ...

Flatbed

Just picked up a flatbed that supposedly came off a 28 AA frame. There's no FORD or FORD TRUCKS embossed on the back which makes me wonder. Also are there supposed to be stake pockets on the front. Thanks, Frank J

Re: ammeter

Thanks for all the info and tips guys. I did have the generator rebuilt so tried the polarizing trick. Didn't change anything so that must have been good. Talked to Mike at Mike's Affordable and he basically told me he had the same problem with his Model A and had to switch the wires. He said he is ...

ammeter

Getting towards the end of my rustoration. Working on wiring. My ammeter is reading backwards. I know the simple answer is the wires are switched but I swear they're not. Looked at two different wiring diagrams, took a picture of the original wiring on the ammeter, and the new wiring wants to fall i...

Body blocks

Should new wood body blocks be treated with something (paint stain oil) before installing or just left natural? Thanks, Frank J

Re: TIRE SIZE ADVANTAGE

I too agree but I am nearly done with my rustoration and am at the point of needing tires. Thanks for the info that slightly larger tires won't make much difference. FRANK J
