Front spring perch question

Can anybody tell me if the front spring perch on an E30 is the same as a regular model A, I’m sure there are not because the springs are wider. Also, is there any company selling repos of these, I think mine are worn as there is play in front axle

Re: AA Truck Wheels

These trucks have so little value anymore because the guys that have any interest in them are dying off. I always shake my head when I see what some guys are trying to get for their parts. Hell, I give my spare parts away just because I want to see the trucks stay around and driven!

Probably for a machine engine. Such as a Smith air compressor or a piece of farm equipment. Speeding in an AA is extremely hard to do.
Agreed, damn sure not gonna speed in an AA, unless you’re in a school zone!

Re: Steak bed Rear Window See Through Grille ?

I saw this metal grille piece that sections in to the steak bed wood that blocks the rear window. Does anyone knows who carries this for sale? Not sure what the piece is called. Looked through Snyders, Macs, and CW Moss sites but did not find. I am putting a rear view mirror in since my steakbed wi...

Re: coolant Temp.

I put new rod bearings in, built and installed a fan shroud, set the timing with a timing light and changed water pump impeller. Took truck for drive today and water temp never went above 170.

Was the oil pick up tube in place on the rear main when you dropped the pan???
That tube is a drain tube as I understand it, but yes, it is welded in place!

Re: Rod knockin'

Go back to the stock distributor set up and see if that helps. That way you will know if that is the problem. You don't want to be running it if it is so advanced it's causing it to knock. Engines don't like that. Well, turns out the rattle was not timing related, I thought it was because I could c...
