Timing gear shreaded

Happy New year fellow AAers, Does anyone have any ideas why a fiber timing gear on a freshly rebuilt engine with less than 300 miles on it would shred the teeth off. Cruising along at 30-35 mph and makes a clunking noise and dies. Pulled the timing gear cover and gear teeth are shredded about one th...

Re: FAQ for AA dummies?

If you are expecting an AA truck that will drive like a modern 4 speed, you will be seriously disappointed. Also, be prepared to tinker with it every time you want to drive it, it needs constant oil and grease checks. They are definitely a truck that you drive, you don,t just get in it and go, there...

Re: AA truck Ride

I have to say that I am pretty pleased with how mine rides. I was expecting a rough ride, but even empty it is great considering we are dealing with 90 year old technology!

Front spring perch question

Can anybody tell me if the front spring perch on an E30 is the same as a regular model A, I’m sure there are not because the springs are wider. Also, is there any company selling repos of these, I think mine are worn as there is play in front axle

Re: AA Truck Wheels

These trucks have so little value anymore because the guys that have any interest in them are dying off. I always shake my head when I see what some guys are trying to get for their parts. Hell, I give my spare parts away just because I want to see the trucks stay around and driven!

Probably for a machine engine. Such as a Smith air compressor or a piece of farm equipment. Speeding in an AA is extremely hard to do.
Agreed, damn sure not gonna speed in an AA, unless you’re in a school zone!
