29 AA speedo inner drive cable

I'm working on my 29 AA, it has the oval speedometer, I have the outer conduit, it's about 82" long. Does any supplier sell just the inner drive cable?
Can I go to an automotive parts house and buy a universal drive cable and make it work?
thanks nick c

Re: some questions and a few anwsers?

Hi guys, I'd like to know what year AA we're discussing here. Is it the 29 with 11" drums on the front or the later 30-31 with the 14" drums. This subject interests me because I'm restoring a 29 AA and i'm would like to put cast iron drums on the front and on the rear.

Re: '29 AA Front wheel grease seal

I'm restoring a 29 AA, I removed the front hub and looked at it. There is no seal or slinger, it has a baffle, the hub slides over the baffle about 1/4", the hub measures about 2.625 inside and the baffle measures about 2.620 OD, thats only .005" clearance, thats your seal against dirt getting in.

Re: bevel rear end

Looking at the Jim Schilds book page 19, the 28 to 29 rear axles assemblies had a part number like AA 4000 then followed by 2 letters to designate the gear ratio.

Re: AA whells both pattern

I believe the cars and pick ups have a bolt pattern of 5 on a 5 1/2" circle.
The AA trucks have bolt pattern of 5 on 6 7/8" circle.

Re: AA front aprings

What I'm going to print comes from the Jim Schild book on AA's page 37. The front springs for AA trucks include at least four varieties. The 1928-29 truck had a standard AA-5310-AR spring along with the heavier 18 leaf AA-5310-AR. These springs were the same width as the model A car spring but with ...
