Re: Looking for some advice on AA trucks

One fine day I was Southbound on CA Hwy 99 through the CA Central Valley. Traveling at 65-70 MPH I was blown away when I was passed by a 30/31 AA Panel truck. Many miles later I saw the welcoming In 'N Out sign and pulled off to get a fine hamburger. To my surprise the AA was in the parking lot. I m...

Re: your opinion of mitchell overdrive

The Mitchell is called a gear splitter not an 'overdrive' by the manufacturer. You would have with a 4 speed in front, essentially 8 forward gears and 2 reverse gears. You can shift into 'Mitchell' with the Ford transmission in any gear you like. So, yes, you can leave the Mitchell in low range and...

I have decided to keep my express truck totally rust as this one is. I will have new wood in my bed and correct rear fenders.
Put a coat of non gloss clear on it to stop further rusting. Rust never sleeps. If it can't breathe it won't rust further.

Re: Installing a 30-31 hood and radiator shell on a 28

You can put it on. But the hood will be inches away from meeting the body. I remember seeing a model A like that on the street when I was a kid.

Re: 28 express bed for sale

You said you already repaired one in this condition. I am sure it would be a lot easier to sell if it was repaired. I know I have one like it that is beyond my ability to repair.

Re: Spring Start-Up - What to look for?

Sometimes you will find a lube fitting on top of the through bolt that holds the springs together. This was not original but I have seen some. Ford dealers had a C Clamp type of tool that would spread the leaves enough to get some grease between the leaves.

Re: Canadian Timken differential

Since they had an open driveshaft how were they connected to the frame? just the leaf springs like modern trucks? I see a pretty stout bar that has been torched off in your pic... I am pretty sure it connects the same way any other AA diff did, two 1” pins through the back of each leaf spring to th...

Re: Rod knockin'

It may not be a rod bearing. My engine is still running smooth at idle and low speed.When I accelerate to mid range or higher it has a ferocious hard rattle.
