Check the nut on king pin lock bolt. It’s supposed to have a long nut that acts as a steering stop. It should be longer than the one for a car.

Page 378 in Ford service bulletin for September 1929. The nut should be 1 9/32” long, part #AA-3124.

FYI - An original AA spindle bolt locking pin was also longer than the pin used on the A-chassis.

thank you all for great input. i am thinking i have the car spindle stops and not the AA. very small difference but quite important. any idea for sources of this part? i looked at snyders but no luck, maybe looked under wrong title.

I just shoved a nut over the end to make it the proper length. Not how it is supposed to be, but it works until I get it corrected.
