I would think Powdercoat or POR15 would be more durable. I don't plan on being a 'pure-ist'. John NNY I used POR15 and it looks great, and is ne...

Re: 4 speed transmission tower

I think the man might have reassembled with the forks in the wrong places. I cant get into any gears the way it is now. Here are some I took a loooong time ago when I r...

Nice looking truck!

I just finished putting up a new shelter for my AA project, getting it out of the shop and into this new outdoor thing will allow me to finish the body work and paint.

Re: BRAKE RODS??????????

What is the quality of the new brake rods from Snyders, Macs, or Brattons, compared to the originals?? Can they be used for fine point judging??? The ones I picked up from Mac's and Brattons were of good quality, in fact they were excellent. However for the LWB AA I had trouble finding all of the p...

You should find the engine number on the drivers side on the engine block just below the head, about dead center. The frame number is also on the drivers side underneath the cab, it is stamped on the the top of the frame rail. In one of your pictures of the interior cab you see a paint can (or somet...

Re: holy smokes my radiator boils over

Can't figure out why the radiator is boiling over. 29 AA...all original. Thought a mouse nest gummed it up so I replaced the core and 552.00 later it boiled again and ran hot. I'm a wondering what to look for? Any suggestions? Tom Moore Don't forget to look at 'non-cooling system' possibilities, su...

Re: Chassis Black

Hi – What is everyone using for chassis black? I’m not so much interested in color as I am in durability. I used PPG 20 years ago and there are hardly any chips etc. Just, of course, the rust on the bottom of the frame. It is, of course, unavailable. Thanks a lot. Vicky I used POR-15 which is black...

Hi Kris,

If I had to guess I would say it is some sort of capstan winch, or variable speed accessory drive for a belt driven farm implement. I would lean towards the latter though, capstans are smooth so you can get several wraps of rope around them.

Neat looking hardware!
