Rough week and update on the AA

This past week my grandfather who previously owned the AA passed away Friday. He was 88 and suffered from Alzheimer's for the past 9 years. My grandma asked if I could have the truck at his celebration of life this saturday. Of course even if I had to push the truck there. I had been trying to diagn...

Re: Mike Gets His Boyhood Dream !

congrats to mike! I had nearly the same experience. I was able to buy back my grandfather's 31 AA this year after he sold it due to health reasons. :D

Re: Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

So I took my starter to the local model A club and they took it to an electrician who does their work. He replaced a field in the starter. I brought the starter back and installed it. I immediately locked the starter up again. I tried to rock it free by putting it in 3rd gear and but I have had abso...

Re: Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

Now that you replaced the front pulley and star nut were you able to turn it over without the starter installed??? I don't think you have a seized engine but you need to eliminate the minor stuff one at a time. If it doesn't turn in neutral with the starter out you have other problems. the engine s...

Re: Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

Sound like the starter switch is allowing to ground out. Have you remove the switch for inspection? There is a card board insulator that prevents the switch copper contact from touching the switch housing. Should also be something to isolate the stater switch rod. After reconnecting the battery to ...

Re: Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

I think you are going to want to get that bendix gear moving again. Try knocking it back with a hammer and screw driver by tapping it on the gear teeth. If its jammed on something it may stay meshed with the engine which it won't like at all. Once you got it moving freely, clean the helix well but ...

Re: Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

You can try it with your battery charger directly. Polarity doesn't matter but usually the negative would go to the post on the battery and the positive to ground. To make sure that it isn't the switch that is causing you troubles remove it and touch the negative to the flat post that you will find...

Re: Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

Thanks for the replies. A little update: I was able to use the fan belt and spin the engine by hand so the engine is not seized. The battery was replaced last month by the previous owner. The truck has not ran in the past two years per him. I was able to get it started but it would stall and die aft...

Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

I'm hoping it is just the starter and nothing more. While waiting for a carb rebuild kit to come I sprayed carb cleaner in the carb to see if that would help with my starting issue. I have been able to start it but it will not stay running for more than a few seconds, at the most 30 seconds. Yesterd...

Re: Finally acquired my '31 AA!

Well yesterday I was able to go get my truck. The weather overall was good. Hit a thunderstorm on the way home. My f150 pulled the AA like a champ and was my first time hauling anything. We we're unable to get the truck to run. I plan to clean the points, install new plugs and a coil today before wo...
