  • Running Board Brackets...

    Well I set the running board on brackets to have a look since I have my body on. How do you tell which is front, back, left, right. i switch the front and back on drivers side and they are still not right.

    If you have the truck stamped ones I don't think it matters. But then, I don't really know, I would keep trying until I make them fit one way or another.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      Kinda like the Hooters Girls, different sizes on all of them !!, but all look great when installed correctly or incorrectly for that matter

    The shorter ones are for the rear and the side does not matter. The slightly longer ones are for the front and they should appear to be slightly angled back compared to the frame at that point. Rod

    The parts book shows the fronts are the same and the rears are different for left and right.

      Ok...back at this jiga puzzle again...as you can see from the pic the front bracket is sticking out too far. I have switched sides with them and still the same thing...

        I think you should get the front and rear fenders on and see how things line up.

          Thanks Bob. Question? Does the running board lip go into groove of apron? It looks like it makes sense. I would have to pull the front part of the apron out to have board go over bracket.

            I have the short ones on the back that make a straight line. I've searched and searched and seems fronts are interchangeable ..

              If you measure tip to tip of the fronts they should be the same~ tip to tip on the rears. Rod

              Hmmmmm
              this is bringing back some memories. Seems to me I had to slightly notch one apron to properly fit over a bracket. Never could figure out why. Possibly because the aprons are repops. I'll have to crawl under the car to be sure

                This is all re-pop.. Rowdy..I measured from the edge of apron out. Both of the fronts are about 10" and both rears are about 9" if I locked in running board to apron and pull out so board lip goes over bracket it will work. Just wonder how front fenders will line up. I dont have any yet...

              I am beginning to wonder if he has a couple of AA brackets he is trying to mount on his car/ 1/2 ton chassis. Rod

                Not a chance...Brookville doesn't make AA. LOL '29 RPU

            • #12
              Just checking. I had to sort out three AA brackets out of my parts pile. Now have the two stamped sets and one forged set I need for projects present and future. May be close to having an extra set of stamped.

              Did not realize your brackets were repop. Rod

              Running board brackets
              by Great Lakes Greg
              I have at least ten rear running board brackets that I have to choose from for a frame I have. Are there lefts and rights, because they all look the same on the bench.

              Running Board Brackets
              by Fordfordora
              My "A" came with the rear running board brackets bent up. After drilling them out I put out some feelers for replacements. I also looked them up in Snyder's. According to their catalog the right and left brackets need to be ordered separately. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the two? Unfortunately I did not consider this when I removed them and now am not sure where they...

              Running board anti squeak?
              by Bick in New Zealand
              Is there a anti squeak between the running board brackets and the running boards?
              If so what do you use?

              Rootlieb vs quality
              by Steve Plucker
              Trying to find good running boards for my wife's July 1928 Open Cab Pickup is like finding hens teeth.

              That being said...how is the quality and appearance of Rootlieb's (in Turlock, CA) running boards compaired to the original?

              I know the two brackets that are spot welded to the bottom of the running boards are questionable...thinking about spot welding originals on if I...

              I have one running board bracket not attached to the frame on my 11 T and I do not see rivets for an 11 in the suppliers catalogs, only rivets for the later stamped bracket. What rivet can be used or wher can I find them? Art

              running board repair help needed
              by old31
              I had a hole in my rubber on the running board. I repaired the hole with JB Weld.

              Does anyone know of a brush-on or spray that will make the JB rubberized like the running board, and look smooth? I would go over the entire running board with it.

              Running Board Dimensions - Need a little help
              by Jwmckenzie
              I am mounting the fenders for my '31 Woody, so I can get them straightened out. I am in desperate (well that's a bit dramatic) need of dimensions for the running boards. I going to make some stand-in boards out of wood as I work to fit the fenders on the frame. I am looking for a few dimensions to make these stand-ins to assure I have the mount for the tail of the fender in the right place.

              Frame tollerances...to strighten or not to strighten...
              by Steve Plucker
              I have just finished the disassembly of my wife's, yes my wife, July 1928 Open Cab Pickup chassis.

              The frame looks very decent after 90 + years.

              Some issues with the rear running board brackets and the front cross member but can be fixed.

              So here are the major issues, if in fact they are major issues at all:

              All measurements taken in a crossways...
