Cotter pins

Post by rrich1 » December 23rd, 2020, 11:17 pm

I was wondering if there is a chart of the correct size cotter pins and locations for the AA? Brattons has a list available for the regular A. I am putting in an order to McMaster car this week and I would like to get a supply of cotter pins. Is there at least a list of the sizes needed at all?

The Restorer, May/June 2015, page 10 has a complete list of sizes and locations, as submitted by Rick Black.
I’ve tried to upload the list, but am having trouble doing that. I’ll continue to try.

I looked at that page from the Restorer again, and it's a list for what's used on the Model A's. For the most part, it would be the same except for some suspension parts, so I guess it would not completely answer your question.

Always one bad decision away from a good time.

I'd like a copy as well if you have the time. Could the file be posted on the AA-fords website? Thanks, Dave

FYI - I modified the excel work book I received and saved it for downloading at:

https://app.box.com/s/n0o9gtdm4fw4dcc0471slopr8nm0d1s7

This file has two worksheets - cotter part seq. and location seq.

It would be more useful with a count column for the number used at a location. I don't know the time period this applies to. Cotters for AA unique parts are not listed.
