Warford cluster gear shaft.

I picked up a Warford last week and have found that the shaft going through the cluster gear has more wear on it than I’m comfortable with. Would anyone have a one that they would be willing to sell?
Failing that I will look into having one made.

Re: Coolant system question!

Timing will not affect water being pushed out of the radiator. That said if your timing is too retarded it will cause it to overheat and then that will cause issues. If your set up caused the upper hose to split you are very lucky that the hose split and not your radiator. Model A radiators are not ...

Re: Coolant system question!

If this is a stock Model A engine then you should not be using a pressurized cap. Even then a pressurized cap shouldn't cause pressure to build up as the overflow tube should prevent pressure from building up. If you fill your radiator to the top of the neck it will puke coolant out right away. Mode...

Re: 1931 AA

Hi Jack. In my opinion it is best to run a modern coolant/antifreeze in a Model AA and Model A. Modern coolants have additives that prevent rust in the block that will cause the radiator to plug and overheat the engine. Also you will not have to worry about freezing temperatures and damage to your e...

Re: WTB, Rear 88A platform bed crossmember

If you do end up pulling it apart and repairing it try grinding the back sides of the rivets off and punching them out and saving them. I did this with my front cross member. When I re-assembled it I placed the rivets back in and then mig welded the back side of the rivets in place. This way the riv...

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

If the starter will not spin sitting on the bench using jumper cables pull the switch apart and see if something is amiss there. Jump directly to the contact as suggested. If that doesn't work take it to your local starter and alternator repair shop and have them check it out. The pulley itself shou...

Re: Finally acquired my '31 AA!

Glad you got it home. Looks like a nice truck. When trying to get it to run do only one thing at a time to it. That way you know for sure what fixed it. Your trailer is the same as mine except for the your attached ramps. Mine are separate and slip in under the bed at the rear. I have an F150 too an...

Re: Dismantling doors

Yep they slide up. Hold a piece of oak board against the bottom edge of the piece that goes across the top of the window opening at each corner and drive (tap) the opposite end of the board with a hammer. Work it at each inside corner a little at a time. Don't hesitate to drive it back down after yo...

Re: Windows and window tint

You can have them made locally if you have glass to use as a pattern. I ordered mine from Bert's and was pleased with the fit.

Re: Light Switch?

Could have been a lot of things.
How about a light on the rear of the truck that said OK TO PASS

I say that because I have a vintage one that I'm going to install on mine this spring.
