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...

Re: Lightened flywheel

Getting it together. I was able to shim the flywheel housing to .003 (.006 max allowed) and runout on flywheel is .002 (.005 max allowed). i am hoping to get it in the truck next week. Weather is getting nicer and I need to get the truck back together. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180315/25541...

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 ...

28/29 warford rebuild

I recently picked up a warford overdrive with almost perfect gears. I want to do a complete rebuild. Is there any source for gaskets or bearings? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180111/f53e75777b3d7861d385f94b0cb3e86d.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180111/84f877a2c8bad6cc533bd52073ce1351....

Re: 28/29 torque Tube installation

I made the tool in 10 mins using pipe from pipe clamp and a 3/4 by 1 inch reducer. The link shows cutting down a 1 1/4 to 3/4. I believe this is a typo. The 1 inch to 3/4 has a 1.75 outside diameter. Only had to take off .03 from outside edge to get it to right size. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.co...
