Re: Wanted: Early '28 AA wheel lug nuts

Thanks Neil. Maybe where I need to be looking is in the scrap pile behind some old Ford dealership buildings!

Following up on Neil's comment, if there are any machinists out there that might be willing to undertake such a project, please let me know : )

Re: Wanted: Early '28 AA wheel lug nuts

Thanks, Kim. I've been looking for 2 years and have found no reproductions and only 4 originals. These were only used on AA trucks through mid '28, so not a lot out there. I'd give a good price to anyone that can round some up!

Re: Torque Tube Internal Parts

Neil, another thought...could it be that in reverse, the speedometer gear's forward motion is restrained by the u-joint?

Re: Torque Tube Internal Parts

Neil, I remember wondering this same thing when I disassembled my worm drive torque tube. I think the extra clearance actually ended up being between the seal and the bearing sleeve. Remember that "button" impression on the bearing sleeve snaps into the hole in the wall of the torque tube during ass...

Re: Thermal Dynamics

Hello Dave- Yep, as I mentioned, there are benefits to running antifreeze and that should probably be the first recommendation. However, if someone is wanting to increase system capability (ambient temp or altitude) by squeezing a few more degrees from the operating temperature, running distilled wa...

Re: Thermal Dynamics

Thanks for the question, Neil. Andy Weideman had a cooling presentation out there that I'd like to reference but can't seem to find right now, so I'll put into my own words. The presentation refers to the Model A cooling system as a hybrid thermosyphon/water pump system, with the water pump being ef...

Re: Thermal Dynamics

What did you have for coolant when you last measured the temperature? Distilled water with "Water Wetter" will cool better than anti-freeze. Today's antifreeze contains glycol. When glycol is run in a slow-flowing radiator it won't cool as well as water. With slow flow rates, there is a "glycol effe...

Re: Thermal Dynamics

Kim, that's a great question. I'll take a shot at it, but I'm sure there's some engine guys out there that can do better. First, the following is from Wikipedia regarding ignition timing: =============== The need for advancing (or retarding) the timing of the spark is because fuel does not completel...

Re: Long running boards

These lug nuts are a challenge to make and I haven't found anyone to make them yet. Are you offering?

Re: Long running boards

Re: VARIOUS AA PARTS

Do you have any lugnuts for the wheels? I'm looking for early lugnuts for spoked wheels.
