History and Specs Prices for the Model A ranged from US$385 for a roadster to $1400 for the top-of-the-line Town Car. The engine was a water-cooled L-head 4-cylinder with a displacement of 201 cu in (3.3 l). This engine provided 40 hp (30 kW; 41 PS). Top speed was around 65 mph (105 km/h). The Model A had a 103.5 in (2, 30 mm) wheelbase with a final drive ratio of 3.77:1. The transmission was a conventional 3-speed sliding gear manual unsynchronised unit with a single speed reverse. The Model A had 4-wheel mechanical drum 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), Convertible Cabriolet, Convertible Sedan, Phaeton (Standard and Deluxe), Tudor Sedan (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 an aftermarketcast 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 have safety glass in the windshield.[6]The Soviet company GAZ, which started as a cooperation between Ford and the Soviet Union, made a licensed version of the Model A from 1932–1936. [7] This itself was the basis for the FAI and BA-20 armored car, which saw use as scout vehicles in the early stages of World War II.In addition to the United States, Ford made the Model A in plants in Argentina, nbsp; Canada, nbsp; France, nbsp; Germany and the United Kingdom and Denmark.In Europe, where cars were taxed according to engine size, Ford equipped the Ford Model A with a 2, 33 cc (124.1 cu in) engine providing a claimed output of just 28 hp (21 kW; 28 PS). [8] However, the engine size was still large enough to equate to a fiscal horsepower of 14.9 hp [9] (as opposed to the 24 hp 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 their smaller successor in England and Germany.

All parts are interchangeable, nbsp;exceptthe 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 SpecificationsTransmission 1 pintRear End 1-1/2 Quarts7-tooth Steering Box 7-3/4 ounces2-tooth Steering Box 4-1/2 ounces Rear Axle SpecificationsType Three quarter floatingMaterial Special Ford carbon manganese steelGear Ratio 3.78:1 (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 Cup Double taper roller type B4616Bearing Cup B4222Differential Bearing B4221Ring Gear 8.4" pitch diameter, 1-3/16" wide teethAxle Shaft 1-1/8" diameter, 1.128"-1.130"Dimension From Housing Flange to Bearing Shoulder Before 1929-1.370"-1.372", After 1929-1.365"-1.367"ID of Wheel Hub 3.188"-3.190": max. wear 3.185"Axle & Drive Shaft Seal B4245Inner Axle Seal B4245Differential Lubricant 600WNew Bearing Torque 20 foot poundsBolt Torque 35 foot poundsAxle Backlash .010"-.015"Axle End Play .015"-.020"Length of Full Spline 2-1/2"Spline Minor Diameter .901"-.911"Spline Outer Diameter 1.090"-1.091"Pinion Bearing Torque 15-20 foot pounds Front Spring SpecificationsMaterial Chromium steel alloyFront Spring Leaf Width 1-3/4"Front Spring Free Length 30-13/16" to 30-15/16"Leaf Thickness 1-31/32" to 2-1/16"Spring Off Car- Height from Top to Bottom as Sitting on Floor 6-15/16" to 7-1/16"Spring Off Car- Center of Eye to Eye 30-5/8" to 30-13/16"Ford blueprints called for each leaf to be coated with a thick paste of graphite ground in oil.

Clutch mounting shoulder diameter must be concentric with crankshaft flange diameter within .005" TIR (Total Indicator Reading).Flywheels provide momentum to keep the crankshaft spinning. 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.
