Re: turn signals

I have decided on the BOSCH Classic turn-signal switch # 0 341 810 013 with integrated headlight-flasher function (right picture)
I will make a housing similar to the VW assembly.

Re: REAR VIEW MIRRORS for AA TRUCK

Hello!
Since the bracket arm will be 10+ inches, I'm afraid the hinge mount version will be too weak and flexy, so I think it will be better to install the bracket on the hinge pillar instead and...

Re: REAR VIEW MIRRORS for AA TRUCK

You are absolutely right Bob, but as you said it's close enough.
It struck me that a marine stanchion would be the perfect rod. Just make the hinge mount, weld it on and you'll have a beautiful...

Re: REAR VIEW MIRRORS for AA TRUCK

I think it would be an easy thing to make a mirror bracket like AA-17697-B. Machine a tapered rod and weld on the fittings in each end and this bracket will fit the 6x10 mirror I suggested.

Re: REAR VIEW MIRRORS for AA TRUCK

I've looked at the original mirrors that were available, https://aafords.com/aa-body-types/body-details/mirrors/ but they are too small and I think that's a safety issue. I drive my truck frequently...

I'm trying to find some time typical outside rear view mirrors for my 1930 AA Truck.

Any suggestion would be...

Re: Radial tires for AA Trucks

alexiskai, I Googled too and found what you just described. Heat dissipation seems to be the main concern and with a large enough gap between the tires air will pass by and keep the temperature under...

Re: Radial tires for AA Trucks

You are right Bill!
The bias tires do contact at the bottom, but they don't seem to rubb any. I believe they only touch gently with no rubbing since there are no motion between them. I can not see...

Re: Radial tires for AA Trucks

Paul, since you said " go with modern tires", I was asking for a tire brand and hopefully a specific type, not a Swedish retailer

Re: Conventional oil and Synthetic oil

Bob you forgot 40% increased oil film strength - it's like having another half bearing extra. Also, it doesn't age like mineral oil - you can go by driving distance and disregard time gone by.

Re: Radial tires for AA Trucks

They are tube type and of perfect size, but $340 is on the expensive side - $2,653 for 7 tires with tubes. That's why I was wondering if there was any alternatives. I have 600R16's Excelsior Stahl...
