New server

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!

New AA Forum Suggestion

Hello Forum members, A fellow forum member sugggested a "chit chat" forum where AA forum members could chat about whatever so long as it was not political or religious. My feeling is that we should keep this place relevant to A's and AA Trucks and not just have general "shoot the breeze" forum. We h...

Anti-Spam Bot mod Installed

Due to the ever increasing automated spam signups, I have implemented new counter measures on the system to prevent bots from registering porno and other spam web URL's on new registrations. In fact new registrations will not show up on the new user list at all so you don't have to be subjected to t...

Forum Software Upgraded!

I finally got around to working on the forum upgrade problems I had a while back. Basically had to create a 2nd database, install the forum software from scratch, re-apply all of the "mods" and then dump and insert the old database tables. Many of the tables had changed order and structure, that is ...
