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...

Re: Model A Huckster Group

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Bearings: AA1225-B (rumored to be superseded by BB1225-A)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.

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

Hmmmmm,

My tug's rear end has been shortened considerably and has been adapted to purpose-built solid steel rear wheels (which are about 7,854,669,337,925 pounds each) that use pressed-on solid...

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

Thanks Bob. I've attached two photos. Can you tell me if this is a TT or AA rear end?

I apologize for the poor quality of the photos but these are all I have in my computer at the moment.
