Thanks!

Re: King Pin Bushing Orientation Question

HI Keith,

So just to confirm.

"The open end of the lower bushing faces up and the open end of the upper bushing faces down."

Thanks for your insight!

King Pin Bushing Orientation Question

Hi, I am ready to put the king pin bushings in the spindles, but not sure of the correct orientation. There is a grease groove in the bushing; one that goes all the way to the edge of the bushing (bottom picture) and one that stops before the end (top picture). Can someone please tell me which way t...

Re: Drag Link Spring & Front Brake Rod

Thank you for the replies gentlemen. Are you sure that A3305-S is the drag link spring for the AA truck and not the car. I ordered drag link springs from Snyder's and they sent me a package of springs that could almost fit inside the AA drag link / tie rod end springs. Snyders does not have the fron...

Hi All,

Does anyone have a drag link spring and front brake rod for a 1931 AA?

The end broke on the front brake rod (3rd from left in 2nd photo)

Re: 1931 AA Rear Leaf Spring Orientation

Thank you both!

My AA is an 82B with an 88-A platform with the shorter spring shackles.

So the longer side of the rear leaves will be to the rear!

1931 AA Rear Leaf Spring Orientation

Hi, Can someone help me with the orientation of the rear leaf spring please. When I disassembled my rear leaf springs to sandblast and paint them, I did not realize that the center bolt hole was off center in the lower (longer) leaves. The longest leave (with the bolt bushings) measures from one end...

Re: Hub Puller

These are the dimensions of the adapter I made. Fit great.

I cut it on a laser at my friend's shop.

88-A Platform Question

Hi,

Does anyone know where I could get the 8 metal skid strips for the 88-A Platform?

Is the mounting hole spacing the the same as the skid strips on the other beds?

I have seen Express bed strips, but I have not found the ones for the Platform Bed.

Thanks,
Dave

Re: Hub Puller

Yes. It most certainly will.

I made an adapter plate to attach it.

Re: Spring Bushings

Thanks for all the input.

I do not want to remove my spring pivots so I am going to weld them up to oversize and then give it a go at making the Arnold Read spring pivot sizer tool.

Here is a picture of what I am starting with.
