Re: Manley crane identification

Greetings

The other two things to look for is the original Manley snatch block and winch crank. These are usually missing on all of these early wreckers

The exact date is subject to debate. The No. 101 was Manley's most common wrecker crane. It also...

Re: Weaver auto ambulance

$1200 is a little much with out the pole.
The original pole has a unique casting on the end of the pipe to center the inner extension pipe.
This one is a real early model of the auto ambulance, probably early teens.

Re: Strobe light

Great idea. However, most states have sections in their vehicle codes that address the proper use of flashing amber lights. You may want to check to see if your installation is legal to use on a moving vehicle. Also some of the lights that are available as warning lights are bright enough to affect ...

Re: California registration rule

FYI Not all AAA clubs or offices are created equal. Most AAA offices will do the basic DMV renewals and registrations changes but not old registrations and the verifying VIN numbers, they will refer you to a lien service or contractor.

The two outside retainer strips, AA-89176 and AA-89177 are the problem. They have a right angle bend to them th...

Re: Tow truck is com ring together but I need help

That Sasgen is a pretty unique unit in that the boom will swing out to the side. There aren't too many of those still around. The body is most likely was originally off of a mid 30's or later truck. Most of the trucks of the AA vintage had the service car style bodies, cut down car bodies, simple pi...

Re: Parts parts and parts for sale

I believe the 18 leaf spring set up was a late 29 option and the u-bolts did have two cotter key holes. Probably so they could be used with the 12 or 18 leaf springs. Its what is under my 29
