Re: spring opinion

One of the back issues of the MARC News suggested grinding off and rounding a little of the bottom tip of each leaf so it doesn't tend to burrow into the leaf below. I've also seen an AA with several leaves removed and replaced with a block of oak the same thickness and height of the removed leaves,...

Re: Open Coupling Shaft

In the July 1932 Ford Service Bulletins page 35 fig.51 is a drawing of a coupling shaft that appears to be open for the AA truck. This was a new part for the previous model. Might be worth a look.

Re: 1928-Early 1930 Open Cab AA Truck photos.

On the back cover of the July/Aug. Model A News v.51 #4 is an early 1930 AA closed cab express photo. It's a posed 1930 photo and might be a Ford Archives photo. The truck is obviously new and has the legend Bureau of Power & Light on the side. The issue of the MARC News gives no attribution, so don...

Re: tire size

I have 6.00x20 tires on the front of my 1928AA. The only time the tire hits the brake rods is when I'm backing up with the wheels cut at the sharpest angle. You couldn't drive forward with the wheels cut at that angle and i can't see what damage the tire could do to the brake rods while backing up. ...

Re: 1928-Early 1930 Open Cab AA Truck photos.

Forgot to include my e-mail address: Edwin_Hayslip@brown.edu. Ford mag in 1930-31 has a picture of a lineup of early 1930 dump trucks with 76A open cabs bought by the Alaska highway department! Yes, Alaska!! Freeze in the winter and bitten by mosquitos in the summer. I don't have a run of this mag. ...

Re: 1928-Early 1930 Open Cab AA Truck photos.

I have several open cab photos. Canadian Ford Archives has a pictire of a 1928 open cab stake body truck. I have a photo of Abell's open cab 1928 AA truck, formerly a stake truck now an express truck. Abell of Model A starter fame had the truck at his place on Cape Cod. In the Jan.1937 isssue of Ame...

Re: 28/29 Style Cab on 1930 assembly questions.

You don't have to completely remove the starter to get the steering column in or out. Just loosen the starter bolts and push the starter towards the block.

1929 AA truck in a 1932 movie

The 1932 Mascot serial entitled The Devil Horse has been reissued. It heavily features a 1929 closed cab AA truck with tandem rear ends and a large rack body. Although it is missing the rear view mirror arm and center bumper clamp the truck is in excellent shape. The truck turns up in chapter one, s...

Re: AA welled fender

There's a Service Letter that addresses the dented door. In essence it says that the dented door is needed for 6.50 x 20 tires, but not needed for 6.00 x 20 tires. I'm at work and my Service Letters are at home. I know some models came exclusively with dented doors; on the other hand the 76B open ca...

Re: 28 Wheel studs

If you own an early 1928 stake truck that was converted to the later lugs you still need the 15/16 starting handle to raise and lower the spare tire bracket since the nut that holds the bracket in place cannot be run off, or maybe I'm missing something.
