Re: Model A Huckster Group

Let's see if I can breathe new life into this thread so it won't fade into obscurity.

My 1930 chassis is complete except for painting and the next order of business is to start building the wooden...

Re: Source for acorn head nuts?

I'd like to doll-up my 1930 Ford A engine a little. Does anybody have a source for 7/16-20 chrome (or stainless steel) Grade 8 acorn nuts? I thought of Colony Fasteners from my motorcycling days...

Re: Model A Huckster Group

Yesterday was a landmark day for me. I installed my new Mitchell transmission, thus completing my Huckster's chassis.

Now comes the fun part: turning perfectly good lumber into sawdust!

Re: Model A Huckster Group

I don't know why the professionally-built Hucksters and Station Wagons are built with a particular wood but many of the homebuilders seem to prefer Red Oak because it's readily available and cuts and...

Re: Model A Huckster Group

Good Morning Fred,

Yes, I should've been a little clearer in my post. I'm not a cabinetmaker by any means but I tend to be a perfectionist & overachiever. (See the attached pictures of how a model...

Re: Model A Huckster Group

Now that my chassis is almost finished, I'm gearing up to start cutting lumber. However, I have a coupla questions for those who built their own Huckster bodies: What degree of woodworking experience...

Fred,

I'm building my Huckster mostly to carry my model airplanes between my house and the local R/C club's flying field. (I'm calling it my wooden flight box.) Most of the time it'll just be...

Re: Model A Huckster Group

At 6'-1", I'm also planning to move my seat aft a little in order to gain some much-needed legroom.

And when it comes to seats, I'd like to hear other builders' preferences (bench or tudor) and...

Hi All,

Some of the guys in this forum purchased their Huckster bodies pre-made, and some have or are still building theirs. I fit into the second batch and hope to start tackling my Huck's body...

Oh don't get me wrong. I intend to avoid the freeways completely. Unfortunately, we have so many of them around here that you can't get from Point A to B without getting near one!

Thanks for your...

Re: A question for the guys who DO know their rear end from a hole in the ground

New Info:
Our Model A club's engine guru has determined that I need two bearings that look like the picture that Bob C included in post #13 (on page 1 of this thread) with the following dimensions:...

Re: A question for the guys who DO know their rear end from a hole in the ground

But these are the rear wheel bearings for the Double As. If they're no longer available, how are they still on the road?

Re: A question for the guys who DO know their rear end from a hole in the ground

I THINK that these are the parts I need:

Outer Race (Sleeve): AA1236-C
Bearings: AA1225-B (rumored to be superseded by BB1225-A)

Anybody know who might have these in stock?

Re: A question for the guys who DO know their rear end from a hole in the ground

Here are the dimensions of the outer wheel bearing races (more like sleeves) that are pressed into the tug's wheels:
4.25" OD
3.875" ID
2.75 Long

It's highly unlikely that Superior Grinding Co...

Re: A question for the guys who DO know their rear end from a hole in the ground

I believe the rear end is done and now we're looking at whether the wheel bearings are Ford parts or something else.
