Re: FAQ for AA dummies?

Sorry you were disappointed in the book I recommend. Your initial post suggested you were interested in physical dimensions and general data about the AA truck with which the book is replete. I found it fascinating. I just received a copy of the reprinted service bulletins today. This will be valuab...

Bang for the buck, performance.

Hypothetical question as I am nowhere near driving my project yet; I thought this might be a good discussion. Say I wanted to improve performance of my AA. What are some experienced opinions from AA and A drivers of what would be the most effective way to boost performance/power, and or top speed on...

Re: Rim Shell for 20 inch Tires

Someone posted on here about doing that but it looked pretty costly. I decided after doing a couple mounts on split rims myself, that as long as I could find enough good rims and wheels to stay original. Once you get a full understanding of the precautions needed the mounting is very easy. You could...

Re: King Pin Bushing Orientation Question

I would put the open ended groove toward the thrust bearing so it gets lube.

Re: Drag Link Spring & Front Brake Rod

The drag link uses same parts as tie rod. You can get all the parts to rebuild it for less than 10 bucks. All the suppliers stock them. Snyders part #A-3305-S. They have rods too.

Re: Timing gear shreaded

I had a rebuilt 6 cylinder in a GM 1 ton in my fleet of bakery trucks years ago. After it stripped the third gear they sent me an aluminum one. Never stripped again but you could hear the truck coming up the alley to the plant three blocks away. Whirred like a space ship on a 1950 sci-fi movie!

Re: Hub Puller

I haven’t had a chance to try it yet. I did do like some of the guys here suggested and cut the center out of one of my junk wheels for an adapter. I haven’t gotten to rear axle yet. Decided to pull engine first.

Re: FAQ for AA dummies?

Get the book, “Ford Model A/AA Truck Owner” by A. G. McMillan. It has everything you need to know. There are drawings giving dimensions and lots of information. The cabs aren’t real roomy. You might want to see one in person for that. I have my AA project in a standard size single car garage 15’ x 2...

Re: Radiator brace

My mistake. On closer inspection in better light I can see where someone has filled the bracket holes on the driver side, but why? Who knows.

Transmission Support

How do you support the transmission while the engine is out? I will have to roll truck away from hoist so I can’t keep jack under it.

Radiator brace

My 1930 AA only has a radiator brace bracket on right (passenger) side. No holes or any sign that there ever was one on opposite side. The radiator has a bracket for two rods?
