Re: high speed rear ends

=============================
From Dave "1crosscut":
I think that you have a very early rear axle assembly. What does the speedometer housing on the drive shaft look like?
=============================

Dave-
My truck is an April 1928. Pictures of the speedometer housing attached.

Re: high speed rear ends

===============From Dave========== "Just a suggestion, before you get too happy with this axle, look very carefully at the bottom of the surface where the wheel bearing rides on the housing. If it is damaged here, it could have also damaged the wheel bearing and hub bearing surface. " ==============...

Re: high speed rear ends

I've cracked open my worm drive axle housing and fortunately have found it to be in great shape. Worm drive and gear look very good, as do the planet (spider) gears and axle gears. Only trouble area appears to be the seals, which I would have expected to replace anyway. So I have some questions: -Ea...

Re: high speed rear ends

FYI, for jollies I just completed the same test but with the dual-high in low mode. It took about 3-3/4 revolutions to turn the free axle 1 revolution.

Re: high speed rear ends

I've completed the test. Only difference is that I'm turning the input shaft of the dual-high since the engine & tranny are out of the truck. The dual high is in 1:1 mode (shift lever position is to the rear). I get about 2-2/3 revolutions of the input shaft to turn the free axle 1 revolution. So go...

Re: high speed rear ends

Hello Bud-
I might be interested. My April28 truck has no markings that I can find on the rear axle, so I believe this indicates an early high speed. I hope to be taking it apart soon to verify. If by chance it is not high speed, I'll be interested.

Re: Model A Days at Gilmore Model A Museum

Yes, forgot about the popcorn truck. That was nicely done. There was a stake bed over in the areas with the cars that was pretty nice too.

Re: Model A Days at Gilmore Model A Museum

In addition, I took photos of several of the AA's that had driven in.

Bob M, was that your express bed? It looked great!

Re: Model A Days at Gilmore Model A Museum

I went to Model A Day at Gilmore and had a great time. There were 4 excellent AA's in the museum, a school bus, firetruck, platform dump bed and service car. I didn't get a picture of the school bus.

Re: Length of Dipstick for Dual High?

I've got two and they both measure 8.5 inches from where it sits on the cap to the "full" line.
