Re: Hood Center Rod Diameter

I measured mine as you can see, it is slightly smaller on the ends near the sockets.

Did you clean the contact surfaces of the points?

If you have power at the point arm but no spark at the plugs it may be the contact surfaces are corroded....I had to clean mine this spring.....

Re: Are 3 and 4 speed trannies interchangeable?

First of all, an AA four speed has nearly the same gear ratios in 2nd, 3rd and 4th (1:1 final) as the A three speed does in 1st , 2nd and 3rd (1:1 final).

Which arm is the "steering" arm? The Spindle arm?
