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: 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.

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.

Another way to tell if a truck had a past life is to count the leaves in the rear spring. If there are 13 it was a panel or an express. Dump trucks and flat bed combinations have 16 leaves. However these trucks were overbuilt and 13 is plenty.

Since the horn/light rod is longer than the distance between the top of the steering column and the back of the cab it is wise to get the restored steering wheel and rod in place before you install the cab.
