  • 1930 2wd4dr

    I have a solid 2wd4dr 170B original interior that needs a complete paint job and new interior. One running board has a hole in it and needs to be replaced. Is the running board part of the splash shield or separate like a 31?

    Hey donh, WELCOME to the VFF!!

    The running board should be separate from the splash apron.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      Welcome to the VFF

      I moved your post to the main discussion area as the powertrain and chassis sections are for specialized quick reference..

    From the Standards "Through September 1930, running boards were formed of one piece with the splash shield."

      Model A Pickup Running board shields
      by Barry Thompson
      My name is Barry, and I am a new member. I am restoring a June 1930 pick up. I am trying to put my fender and apron together; and my question is - In the RG/JS they mention that all 1930 running board shields were formed integrally so there is no welting in between the front piece of the running board shield and the fender bc it’s welded together. However the next line says the running...

      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?

      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.

      Welp, since today was the day of the sweeper, had to move Wheezer off the street. Now, this is normally uneventful, Butt, today while letting the engine warm up I proceeded to squeegee off the windows and in doing so noticed another rattle to fix. The rail/edge/shiny outside edge of the running board is loose and making quite a bit of racket at an idle.

      So, since it appears to be the

Top front is 7", tapering down to 2 1/2" at the rear. 43" portion for the running board. Have two passenger side shields. Great condition, but what do they fit? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

      1930/31 Repo Front Fenders
      by merjohn
      Is it common for the new 1930/31 repo front fender flange that bolts to the running board to be 1/4 narrower than the running board flange. We have used repo front fenders and both of them are the same. The fenders do measure 1/4 narrower at the mounting flange than the unusable originals that we have. The running boards are new and they measure the same as the originals. The aprons fit into the...

      Did all ORIGINAL Model A Ford "Commercial" Running Boards come with narrow support bracket down the middle between the running board to frame support brackets (on the running board itself) or not?
