Re: 30/31 Ring Gear Question

Not yet but I’m following. I have a 5.14 in my truck but found a lower mileage 6.6 axle I’m thinking about using but obviously want the higher ratio.

Re: ford AA steering stop?

Page 378 in Ford service bulletin for September 1929. The nut should be 1 9/32” long, part #AA-3124.

Re: ford AA steering stop?

Check the nut on king pin lock bolt. It’s supposed to have a long nut that acts as a steering stop. It should be longer than the one for a car.

Re: battery disconnect switch

I have been studying about how/where to mount one and was thinking that the battery terminal one might be the easiest solution. Do you have a mat on your floor board?

Re: Turn signal ideas

My project is a long way from needing lights, but I have been thinking about this. I really don’t like the modern looking lights. Not sure, thought about fog lights on front and use regular Ford tail lights?

Re: Universal Joint & drive Shaft Mounting Help

I haven’t crossed that bridge yet, but I am sure I will need to. Especially if the u-joint is as worn out as everything else I’ve encountered on this truck. I am thinking turn new bushings out of 1018 on lathe and case harden?

Re: Ford Model TT Body Parts , Doors - AA Long Arm Mirrors

I would love to have a TT, but being even slower than AA wouldn’t get to drive it much. There is a Ford model AA and TT Facebook group. My grandfather’s first truck was a TT. Wish someone had a photo of it. I don’t know what year it was or what style cab. I do know it had fuel tank under seat.
