Re: high speed rear ends

I've completed the test. Only difference is that I'm turning the input shaft of the dual-high since the engine & tranny are out of the truck. The dual high is in 1:1 mode (shift lever position is to the rear). I get about 2-2/3 revolutions of the input shaft to turn the free axle 1 revolution. So go...

High speed rear axle

Hello Bud-
My April28 truck has no high/low speed markings that I can find on the rear axle, so I believe this indicates an early high speed. I hope to be taking it apart soon to verify.

Yes, forgot about the popcorn truck. That was nicely done. There was a stake bed over in the areas with the cars that was pretty nice too.

Re: Model A Days at Gilmore Model A Museum

In addition, I took photos of several of the AA's that had driven in.

Bob M, was that your express bed? It looked great!

Re: Model A Days at Gilmore Model A Museum

I went to Model A Day at Gilmore and had a great time. There were 4 excellent AA's in the museum, a school bus, firetruck, platform dump bed and service car. I didn't get a picture of the school bus.

Re: Length of Dipstick for Dual High?

Re: Door hinge removal

Thanks...I've persuaded them with a 2 pound dead blow hammer to the point I was afraid of damaging something. Like you say, maybe the screw countersinks in the sheet metal are hanging up on the hinge. I'll look into a different kind of persuasion, like a pry bar.

Door hinge removal

I'm working to get the hinges removed from my doors...I've removed the screws on the door side of the hinges and the hinges will wiggle freely within the door, however they won't come out of the door. Is there some other retainer that I'm missing?

Need Rear Fender Spacers

I need rear fender spacers for my 1928 truck, both LH and RH. These are the sheetmetal spacers that fill the gap between the fender, running board shield, and sill for the 88-A Platform. Attached is a picture (RG&JS, page E-76).
