Underneath the dash on the right side is the choke rod. Body design and style was developed and then outsourced to various body manufacturers, including Briggs and Murray. The transmission was geared lower than the Model A to provide more power to move a loaded truck. The U-bolt passes through the end of the bracket, opposite side of the bracket slips between frame rail to prevent it from being bent or collapsing when tightened. The brake light is activated when the brake pedal is pushed.

Early trucks had a worm gear rear-end that limited the top speed of the truck. Currently the pickup models are the hot item in the Model A world so this one will sell fast! Both of these acorn shaped headlamp cases were used in production at the same time and therefore each was assigned suffix for identification. What these heavy-duty tools lacked in top-end speed and power they sure made up for it in character. Pictures of many of the parts are also shown in these booklet releases. This was done to prevent accidental engagement of reverse while the truck was in motion.
Finished in burgundy, the paint and trim are in very good order. Also, truck does not come with any jerry cans. The dual wheels were used for a variety of body styles, including dump trucks, tow trucks, tankers, fire trucks and flatbed stake trucks. The mechanical changes and upgrades were done during production of the vehicles. The brake light is activated when the brake pedal is pushed. This truck is currently located at our facility in St.
These replacement parts may or may not have been exactly the same design as the original production part. This example was previously restored and the burgundy and black exterior is very handsome! This lower gearing reduced the top speed of the truck when compared to the Model A. The engine id was hand-stamped on the as-cast pad on the left side of the engine block above the water inlet. With its shiny red paint and Standard Oil livery, it really stands out. One example of an exception to this rule was the worm drive rear axle.
By the end of 1930, for example, there were 215,556 excess engines. The brakes are proportioned more toward the rear drums. Part number — a number which allowed parts to be grouped. So, one can change values to show different results as desired. Basic chassis layout was done rapidly and mechanical development was moved forward quickly. Current mileage on the odometer shows 77,529 miles. Two levers are mounted on the steering column to adjust the engine.
The horn button is mounted in the middle of the steering wheel assembly. The switch was a three-stop switch for parking lights, headlights and high beams. Basic chassis layout was done rapidly and mechanical development was moved forward quickly. The brakes are mechanical and the truck has four oversized drum brakes to stop the vehicle. The parking brake is a chrome lever on the floor with a release button on the top. One set is enough for both left and right rear wheels.
The cluster is in a diamond formation, with the start key and pop-out locking switch is on the left point. The transmission also featured a lockout on the shift knob for reverse that required a lever to be activated with the thumb so reverse could be engaged. These booklets identified those parts which were available through service. The truck has been brought back to original spec, save for the custom oak bed. The rear suspension differed from the Model A Ford.
All of these features were identical to the Model A Ford, except the radiator. The paint and minimal trim are in great shape, as are the glass panels and lights, all crack- and haze-free. The rear suspension did not have shocks. The earlier truck rain gutters were also separate parts with the same construction and attachment as found on Tudor sedans. Controls for the lights are also incorporated into the steering assembly.
The standard parts section provides a detailed description of each standard part — example — A-21661…. The windshield wipers started as hand operated and later models were powered by vacuum diverted from the intake manifold. The pic above shows the front construction of the cab. In the previous 82-B design cab, the roof had a and a trim moulding covering the joint, the same as the 1930-31 Tudor sedan. Some of the parts listed were not current production parts but were available as service replacement parts. Pictured above is a close-up of the roof panel and back panel joint and construction.
