    Me and Dad (Dad is 78) bought a '29 Model AA dump truck it's in good shape (sorry no pics right now). Long story short the motor was stuck. We pulled the motor and got it unstuck. Now we are ready to start putting it back together. We have both rebuilt 350's and 390's etc.. but never a model A. Do we need a book to guide us or just wing it and ask questions on here? Or does someone have a book I can borrow for a couple months? Going back stock. Everything looks good except a couple cylinder bore that should hone out. Babbitt bearings look good, will plastigage on installation. Anyone have a line on cheap parts, or where to buy? Probably buy from Synder's unless someone recommends another vendor. As I type I guess I need to check Alliance vendors here.

    Thanks
