Re: radiator cap removal

thanks everyone for offering advice. Bob C had the answer with the internal allen head screws. My original post stated an allen wrench didn't fit, but I used a larger size and got it to bite, but the screws wouldn't turn until the casting in the cap broke on one side. In the end, I twisted the cap j...

radiator cap removal

This may be the most rookie question of the month, but I can't figure out how to remove this radiator cap. The goal is to remove the radiator shell for restoration/painting. Is this radiator cap soldered on the neck of the radiator tank, or is it threaded? I'm hesitant to put a wrench on it. Looking...

Re: 31 hard top conversion

Thank you, Neil. The interior picture you posted shows a very clean inside with two metal support pieces. To make a fabric to steel conversion without those support pieces would be a challenge. Does anyone know where to buy those metal support pieces? The conversion piece of sheet metal I have found...

31 hard top conversion

I'd like to convert the cab on my 31 82-A to a hard top and therefore eliminate the fabric top. I found a company that sells the sheet metal to fit inside the original top. It's my understanding the late model 31's had a hard top option from the factory. Does anyone know if the hard top requires the...

Re: Need warford shift lever

I need those same measurements so I can make a shift lever, too. I have the Warford, but no shift lever.

hard top cab conversion

As I restore my '31, I'm considering a hard metal top instead of the fabric top. For my wet climate on the Pacific Northwest coast, I'd be hesitant to take the truck out for winter holiday events if it had the original style fabric top. Does anyone know of a business that makes a formed panel to rep...

Re: differential gear ratio

Thanks Chris. Only one problem: the speedometer cables are gone. So not only do I need to know the gear ratios of the three rear ends so I can choose the two I will use (two trucks to rebuild), but I'm assuming I will need to know the ratios to order the correct speedometer cables.

Now what?

differential gear ratio

I've learned AA's came with different gear ratio's in the differential. The higher speed rear ends were stamped on the outside. How does one find these stamps? I have three complete rear ends and two of them have stamps on the right side. I have included a picture of one of them. At this writing, I ...

I have a full set of 29 fenders, rain skirts, and running boards that I'd sell. All straight, with some unpainted body filler on the fenders.

How to attach photos to AA-Fords

Would someone coach me on how to attach a photo (or more than one) to a post to this AA-fords forum? I have Windows 10 on my computer and am not getting photo attachments to connect to my post. What are the steps?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Rim choice for lock ring conversion

Thanks Bud. I sent you a private message. Let's visit off line.

I'd appreciate replies from others who have done rim conversions that do not require locking rings.
