Default An Update and Another Question

Thanks to all of your help I have been able to get it running with the original engine. New wiring and a couple of things here and there. I am wondering if there is anyone who knows a good place to source parts in Ontario Canada or must I ship up from the states? I'm also torn on which restoration book to purchase.
The frame, axel and rear suspension springs are all in really good shape. There's just so much to do and tearing it down and building back up is well a lot. Any tips to start would be grand! we have decided to not use the dump as it doesn't have any of the gears.

There’s Twiss in Milton and Dixie in Kitchener.
"Also check out Model A Owners Club Inc. I think there are 6 Ontario chapters."

I am assuming that you have an AA dump truck. There were basically three types of dump bodies. One was a gravity dump with no gears. There was also a hand crank dump. See the Model A Ford Service Bulletins Complete, pages 491 through 497.
