Re: 4 speed floor mat

Attached is a picture of my late 1930 1 ton express that I put together last year. At that time I chose to put insulation under the mat and cut a large cutout in the mat that exposes the raised area of the cover plate. I also cut a small section of insulation and placed it underneath the shifter pla...

Re: Transmission Tower Locating Pin

One way would be to drill the hole out just so it becomes round again and then make a stepped pin. No welding or messing with the threads (in the newer tower). Steve.

Re: Turlock

Hi, there is another large swap meet in N.Calif in Sacramento at the Arco arena in the fall. Last fall I had my dolly loaded up with #200+ of stuff on it all the way out at the very end of the parking lot and guess what? My dolly had a flat. There are no "parts haulers" at that swap meet and I had t...

Re: Turlock

I went to Turlock this year. It takes a lot of energy just to get there, and then one can only see 1/3 of it in a day. I bought the following: AA shell for $25, Hi-Lo shifter for $5, Autolite waffle manifold and heater for $40, TWO perfect 31 gas tanks for $80 for the pair ( ten feet away another se...

4 speed floor mat

Can someone post a picture of the correct way that the floor mat interfaces with the metal plate around the shifter hole? Also attached is a photo of my foot rest base plate having a full circle flange and four screws, is this a Ford item? Thanks Steve.

Re: Exhaust manifold heater

Hi, make one out of 1/8" flat stock. I made one for my late 31 coupe with a Miller overhead valve conversion. The outlet had to be routed towards the center of the firewall two inches in order to not interfere with the fuel valve indentation, but as low as possible. I used rectangular tubing and cut...

Re: Release 5 aafords.com

Neil, Thank you so much for the pictures! It sure is tough trying to locate or fabricate things that you do not know what they look like. Thanks for all of you effort that you put in this forum as well as keeping the AA truck owners connected. Steve.

Shifter tower

Does anyone know which company supplied the 4 speed transmissions to Ford? Attached is picture of a tower from a WWII Dodge army truck transmission. It bolts up and works on the AA transmission. The tower has the New Process trade mark. Note the difference in design of the stick pivot area and the l...

Re: Release 5 aafords.com

Wonderful! I wish I had this info a year ago when I was putting together my express! Could you post some pictures of the rear fender brackets, fender filler pieces, and various tire carriers? Thanks, Steve.

Re: fuel system

To evacuate an empty tank of loose debris while it is still in the cab, I made up a hose with an air gun blowing though a hole in the hose near the discharge end, this creates a safe vacuum to pull stuff from the tank. Do not use this devise near electric motors, pilot lights, or inside a garage. St...

fuel system

Model As and AA trucks vibrate like crazy, and this vibration loosens debris inside the fuel tank. Fuel tank shut of valves have only a 1/4" opening, and larger pieces of sediment in the tank will not go through the valve or will get stuck at the 90 degree part of the valve. Those filters that slip ...

Re: Fuel Filter

Hi, I have tried the inline paper filters, as well as several members in my local Model A chapter. Sometimes they will work, for a while, and then have a reduced flow. Gravity feed does not work with those inline filters,I think that the paper gets saturated and swells. If your sediment bulb is put ...

Re: Spindle Bolt and Bearing

The one set of spindles that I modified were on a doodle bug and I needed all of the brakes to work, and discovered that the notch was cut at the wrong angle which caused the brake actuating rod to bind. The Kingpin could have indeed been off of a later truck. The other set was a NOS swap meet set t...

Re: Spindle Bolt and Bearing

Hi again, I used an air powered cutoff tool to re-cut the notch in the kingpin. Am I the only one that has these funny problems? Steve.
