I will help find you shipping if neededHistory and Specs of the Model A Fords Prices for the Model A ranged from US$385 for a roadster to $1400 for the top-of-the-lineTown Car.The engine was a water-cooledL-head4-cylinderwith a displacement of 201cuin (3.3l). This engine provided 40hp (30kW; 41PS). Top speed was around 65mph (105km/h). The Model A had a 103.5in (2630mm) wheelbase with a final drive ratio of 3.77:1. The transmission was a conventional 3-speed sliding gearmanualunsynchronised unit with a single speedreverse. The Model A had 4-wheelmechanicaldrum brakes. The 1930 and 1931 editions came with stainless steel radiator cowling and headlamp housings.The Model A came in a wide variety of styles:Coupe(Standard and Deluxe) Business Coupe Sport Coupe Roadster Coupe (Standard and Deluxe) ConvertibleCabriolet ConvertibleSedan Phaeton (Standard and Deluxe) TudorSedan(Standard and Deluxe) Town Car Fordor (2-window) (Standard and Deluxe) Fordor (3-window) (Standard and Deluxe) Victoria Station Wagon Taxicab Truck and Commercial.The Model A was the first Ford to use the standard set of driver controls with conventional clutch and brake pedals; throttle and gearshift. Previous Ford models used controls that had become uncommon to drivers of other makes. The Model A's fuel tank was located in the cowl between the engine compartment's fire wall and the dash panel. It had a visual fuel gauge and the fuel flowed to the carburetor by gravity. A rear view mirror was optional.[1]In cooler climates owners could purchase anaftermarketcast iron unit to place over the exhaust manifold to provide heat to the cab. A small door provided adjustment of the amount of hot air entering the cab. Model A was the first car to havesafety glassin the windshield.[6]TheSovietcompanyGAZ which started as a cooperation between Ford and theSoviet Union made a licensed version of the Model A from 1932–1936.[7]This itself was the basis for theFAIandBA-20armored car which saw use as scout vehicles in the early stages ofWorld War II.In addition to theUnited States Ford made the Model A in plants inArgentinaCanadaFranceGermanyand theUnited KingdomandDenmark.In Europe where cars were taxed according to engine size Ford equipped the Ford Model A with a 2033cc (124.1cuin) engine providing a claimed output of just 28hp (21kW; 28PS).[8]However the engine size was still large enough to equate to afiscal horsepowerof 14.9hp[9](as opposed to the 24hp of the larger engine) and attracted a punitive annual car tax levy of £24 in the UK and similar penalties in other principal European markets.[10]It therefore was expensive to own and too heavy and thirsty to achieve volume sales and so unable to compete in the newly developing mass market while also too crude to compete as a luxury product. European manufactured Model As failed to achieve the sales success in Europe that would greet theirsmaller successorin England and Germany.[11]Front Brake SpecificationsBraking PowerFront 40%;Rear 50%Drum Diameter 11" +/- .010"Drum Width1-3/4"Brake Shoe Length14"Brake Shoe Width1-1/2"Brake Shoe Lining Thickness3/16"Brake Shoe MaterialWoven wire & asbestosBrake Rod Length51-7/16" thru 51-1/2"Rear Emergency Brake SpecificationsDrum Diameter9-5/8"Drum Width1-3/4"Brake Shoe Length28-3/4"Brake Shoe Width1"Brake Shoe Lining Thickness3/16" (original) 1/8" (ours)Brake Shoe MaterialWoven wire & asbestosFront Axle & Spindle SpecificationsMaterialChrome alloy forgingTensile Strength125000-145000 PSICaster5" (forward tilt)Toe In1/16" +/- 1/32"Camber1-13/16"Spindle Bolt Diameter.8125" +/- .005"Spindle Bolt Length5-5/16"Spindle Bolt to Bearing Clearance.001"-.002"7-Tooth Steering Gear SpecificationsTurning Radius17' (34' diameter)Steering Gear Ratio1928-29 11-1/4:1Steering Wheel Diameter1928-29 17-1/2"Pitman Arm Length6-7/8" hole center to ball centerBall End Angle to Shaft14°Sector Shaft Bearing Clearance.001"-.002"2-Tooth Steering Gear SpecificationsTurning Radius17' (34' diameter)Steering Gear Ratio1930-31 13:1Steering Wheel Diameter1930-31 17"Pitman Arm Length6-7/8" hole center to ball centerBall End Angle to Shaft14°Sector Shaft Bearing Clearance.001"-.002"2-Tooth Steering Gear Housing Casting MarkingsDatesGemmerFordFebruary - May 1929“GEMMER” & “PAT.

All parts are interchangeableexceptthe worm gear 2 races & 2 bearings. The Ford box has a large “F” on the outside where the worms are located. This change was made in December of 1930 (See page 518 Service Bulletins). The Ford box used a #9 roller bearing while the Gemmer box used a #13 roller bearing. This also changes the taper on the bearings & races. The only parts available today are for the Gemmer box; therefore if you have the Ford box with #9 roller bearings & it becomes necessary to change any of the 5 parts then you must convert to all 5 of the Gemmer components (A3524CD (2) BB3571 A3553D BB3552)600W Oil Usage SpecificationsTransmission1 pintRear End1-1/2 Quarts7-tooth Steering Box7-3/4 ounces2-tooth Steering Box4-1/2 ouncesRear Axle SpecificationsTypeThree quarter floatingMaterialSpecial Ford carbon manganese steelGear Ratio3.78:1 (34-9)Early 1928:3.7:1 (37-10)Trucks:4.11:1 (37-9)1928-29 Roadsters:3.54:1 (39-11)Pinion Bearing CupDouble taper roller type B4616Bearing CupB4222Differential BearingB4221Ring Gear8.4" pitch diameter 1-3/16" wide teethAxle Shaft1-1/8" diameter 1.128"-1.130"Dimension From Housing Flange to Bearing ShoulderBefore 1929-1.370"-1.372" After 1929-1.365"-1.367"ID of Wheel Hub3.188"-3.190": max. wear 3.185"Axle & Drive Shaft SealB4245Inner Axle SealB4245Differential Lubricant600WNew Bearing Torque20 foot poundsBolt Torque35 foot poundsAxle Backlash.010"-.015"Axle End Play.015"-.020"Length of Full Spline2-1/2"Spline Minor Diameter.901"-.911"Spline Outer Diameter1.090"-1.091"Pinion Bearing Torque15-20 foot poundsFront Spring SpecificationsMaterialChromium steel alloyFront Spring Leaf Width1-3/4"Front Spring Free Length30-13/16" to 30-15/16"Leaf Thickness1-31/32" to 2-1/16"Spring Off Car- Height from Top to Bottom as Sitting on Floor6-15/16" to 7-1/16"Spring Off Car- Center of Eye to Eye30-5/8" to 30-13/16"Ford blueprints called for each leaf to be coated witha thick paste of graphite ground in oil.Rear Spring SpecificationsMaterialChromium steel alloyRear Spring Leaf Width2-1/4"Rear Spring Free LengthTudor & Fordor:38-7/8" to 39"Roadster & Coupes:38-7/8" to 39-1/2"Ford blueprints called for each leaf to be coated witha thick paste of graphite ground in oil.Cylinder Head Specifications1928 Head4.3:1 compression ratio 47.3 HP 242cc displacement.

As the flywheel spins faster a vibration will occur if it’s out of balance. It’s best to have your flywheel with clutch & pressure plate balanced so that when you place in the clutch disc & reinstall the pressure plate it will retain balance.Valve SpecificationsLift.287" with .015" clearanceSeat Angle45ºSeat Width3.32"Stem Diameter.311"Valve Length5.677"Head Diameter1.537"Valve Opening Diameter1-3/8"Port Diameter1-3/8"Clearance Exhaust Valves in Guides.002"Clearance Intake Valves in Guides.001" to .0015"Valve Lifter Clearance.010" to .013"Lifter Diameter Clearance.0015"Valve Guides.3135" ID; .5938" OD; length 2.125" (early 2.375")Valve Spring1.022" OD; free length 2-15/16"; comp. length2-1/14" (57-64 lbs.); tension (closed) 34 to 38 lbs.Valve LifterA6500A (used with A camshaft) length 2.486";head diameter 1.117".Valve TimingIntake opens 7-1/2º before Top Dead Center; closes 48-1/2º after Bottom Dead Center.
