Re: Juggling Differentials

Neil Wilson is correct. Any other sources are incorrect except the(Ford Factory) Service Bulletins. The 4 speed transmission appeared in October 1929 and the 1930/31 bevel gear rear end in Jan. 1930. These are announced in the Service Bulletins on those dates, qv. Sincerely, Ed

Re: To all members please help

A while back Neil Wilson posted a Ford Factory photo of the rear of the 1929 AA used on the home page. I tried to find it without success. It's on one of his responses. Best, Ed

Re: double gasketing at exhuast

I think they mean a double thickness to compensate for any warpage of the manifold. As I recall I once bought two sets of the short version and doubled them up. The dealer first offered the long strip, but I told him this was not for a hot rod and I didn't care for the look of the shiny metal. The f...

Re: does anybody know about hand wipers

Lang's at www.modeltford.com sells just the rubber(8 inch) for $4.95. It's their part #7801BL. Their toll free line is 1-800-872-7871. This hand wiper was a carry over from the T to the A. The WWII Jeep had one on the passenger side; except for the lack of plating on the knob it appears to be the sa...

Re: Touring Fans

Back in circa 1959 my 2 blade became a one blade adding some dents to my otherwise perfect original hood. That was my last 2 blade. After that I've always stayed with 4 blade although I have a 4 blade that someone cut off two of the blades which works OK. Hoods are approx $400 at Rootlieb; fans are ...

Re: 1931 Engine color

The correct name is Model "A" Restoration Guidelines and Judging Standards. It's $25 has 23 technical areas in a 3 ring binder with index. It should be available from TAMs or Snyders or MACS or MARC or MAFCA. There's a section on AAs too.

Re: 1931 Engine color

The Judging Standards have a whole section on finishes under the hood including which parts are green and which parts are black. Trust their judgement.

Re: A double A at work in the UK.

The sixwheeler company is spelled Baico not Balco. They did chain drive attachments for Model T's previously.

Re: Model a Ford Service Bulletins Complete, Dan R. Post ?

The Dan Post version has all the technical info from the 1928-1931 Model A Service Bulletins. The exact copy from MARC has all the promotional material as well, so an item in the Post book on a left hand page might turn up in the original copy on a right hand page. The Service Bulletins is a journal...

If the spark/throttle rods are pitted and are not worth plating you could hack saw them off. These are being reproduced in stainless and nickel. Best, Ed

Re: Making an AA steer easier

Shortening the pitman arm increases the turning circle. Who would want that? Compared with the previous model TT truck the AA takes a lot more turns since there are brake rods in the way and a longer wheel base.

Re: AA Or TT

When determining if a Ford flatbed is a TT or AA look at the middle of the rear crossmember below the middle stake pocket to see if there are rivets or evidence where rivets were to attach a spare tire bracket. The TT never had a spare tire under the bed. The TT bed is smooth in this area.

Re: Buy, Buy, American pie

The Chopper 1 Axe is made in the USA. It's a wonderful splitting axe. It has two spring loaded fingers in the head preventing it getting stuck in a log. It has USA in raised letters on the head. Available on-line. I've had mine since the earth cooled; now only available on line from the inventor.
