Re: dual high paint color?

I have just disassembled my dual high (Design 2) and found the rear hexagonal case was painted Ford engine green before being machined. Please see the attached pictures showing the inside of the rear case. Hopefully you can distinguish the engine green color inside the case, and more importantly tha...

Spacers for rear axle bumper?

My early 28 AA stakebed has spacers between the frame and the rear axle bumpers. They appear original, but does anyone know if these were available from the factory? They look too nice to be an owner modification :D

Re: Rear spring shackle bolts

Thank you, Neil. Informative response as always. My April28 truck has hex head bolts, while I also have a July28 frame with rear springs that has square head bolts, hence my confusion. And then I couldn't find the RGJS reference. But now I know that each frame is correct for their respective month! ...

Rear spring shackle bolts

What's the correct shackle bolt for early 1928, hex head or square head? I couldn't find this in the RG&JS.

Re: High speed rear axle

I got the two inner seals out and here's a couple of photos of what they look like. I spoke with Snyders, who don't have a replacement but referred me to Tom of Model A Ford Works in Portland and he confirmed that it is a TT carryover. Apparently this seal wasn't used for very long in the AA (rememb...

Re: high speed rear ends

I think that you have a very early rear axle assembly. What does the speedometer housing on the drive shaft look like? Dave, for some reason this thread has been split, maybe to free up Bud's original thread. Anyway, go to the top or bottom of the thread and over on the right side you can select th...

Re: high speed rear ends

Brian, I have never seen seals there. They are to be pushed through from the diff side out almost to the brake end of the housing. Use a piece of 1" pipe and a set of Harbor Freight seal installers and a good LED flashlight. First make sure you have the old seals out before you try to install the n...

Re: high speed rear ends

If it is damaged here, it could have also damaged the wheel bearing and hub bearing surface. " ==============...

Re: high speed rear ends

I've cracked open my worm drive axle housing and fortunately have found it to be in great shape. Worm drive and gear look very good, as do the planet (spider) gears and axle gears. Only trouble area appears to be the seals, which I would have expected to replace anyway. So I have some questions: -Ea...

Re: high speed rear ends

FYI, for jollies I just completed the same test but with the dual-high in low mode. It took about 3-3/4 revolutions to turn the free axle 1 revolution.
