Re: Express bed boards

Painted bottom of bed in prep for wood installation. IOLA swap the rest of this week. Will cut and install the sills. I have some dried ash I will use for sills and floor. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180710/8d94d1a950387142a4de990313e30dd7.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180710/8fd7c6f...

Re: 29 express spare wheel mount.

Does someone have measurements of the straight horizontal run of an original up to where it starts to curve up as measured from the out side of the frame? The one I made did not go thru the hole in splash apron like it should. It was a little high as it was curving upward. I think I need to add in ...

Fit looks really good as distance from running board is same thickness as tires on truck.

29 express spare wheel mount.

When I bought a early 30 express truck it came with a front fender mounted spare tire mount that was installed next to the box (side mount). They cut out a section of the box to make it work - ouch! Over the last 4 years I have searched for the right side mount with no luck. I did find two front fen...

Re: Model A engine rebuilders

I am interested in having a model A engine rebuilt. I have a list of websites and rebuilders, but don’t know which rebuilder is considered the best in the USA these days. Sometimes websites are old and really reflect what was going on at the company ten years ago rather than last week. Does anyone ...

Axles too long?

I put some wire wheels on a August 29 AA with a worm gear rear end and I noted that the axle and axle nuts stick out of the rim about 1/4 inch on both sides. Anyone know possible cause? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180326/3219191ffe33cbb3740b422a2c6a8228.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20...

Lightened flywheel

Just picked up my lightened flywheel assembly from south bend clutch. What a fantastic job. Lightened to 42 lbs, drilled and tapped for V-8 clutch, and balanced it for 150.00. Pressure plate brand new was 80.00 with a new ring gear at 23.00. This was way cheaper than any supply house and I saved on ...
