With the annual GLMVPA show & swap coming up here the 3rd 4th & 5th at General Jims Surplus in Clare Michigan. www.GeneralJims.com (http://www.GeneralJims.com)
Figured I'd start a swap list.

As usual I have misc M880 parts, including axles.
a couple M38 skid plates.
MB Transfer case
M886/M1010 surgical light assembly.

I have a few GPW parts that I'll be on the look out for.
I'd be all over a NOS cover & bow kit for a M36A2 if one is there.
Adjustable foot for the rear support of a M101A2
349323

Will add more as I think of it.

I might have a few hours to spare that day so I can run up there.
I'll have the usual axle nut sockets, locks, and maybe a few slide hammers and odds and ends.

I will be there Friday night or early Saturday, that's if I can get the M35 back together in time.

Ill be looking for:
M35A2 fiberglass troop seats
M35A2 bows and tarp (tan or cammo I'm not picky)
M35A2 fenders

Hopefully meet some knowledgable M35 owners who can look at mine and say "That sound is good" or "Fix that ASAP!!!!!"

We just got the base-x tent up for kitchen pig roast Sat. Eve. General Jim's has a truck lot now just 7 miles north on US27. Never know what will come out of the woods? Clare Co. Fair is this week as well.

I think we're going to be there early Sat morning. I'm riding down with Dave, and Google has to work. Sat night is Veterens night at the speedway, so we have to be back in time for that. I'll let you know when I have a more set time. Oh, don't worry about them axles, not in a hurry for em, its more junk to find a spot for.

Have some M37 parts for sale,
New master cylinder, brake springs, wheel cylinder rebuild kits, used brake shoes, a complete set of backing plates with everything still on them and a set of drums. Converting to 4 wheel disc brakes, so I don't need this stuff.

Set of doors, one new NOS pass side, one well used and abused drivers side

Look for a guy named Art in a white van that says "Paint the World " on it. He wants/needs a tow bar. Does it have the collars on it? Any feet with it? Pictures?

Come on out, bring something to display/sell or just hang out for the day.

Natem,


So basically your saying to leave the C4 at home.....?

Bob H
08-03-2012, 10:00
Yea Don That's always a good idea as the authorities tend to get upset when they find people running around with C4...................

Anyway as I spend my limited time before work getting ready for an early morning roll out.
I will not load up any axles unless someone says they want some. I'll only be bringing lighter smaller parts.
In addition to what's listed in post#1
I'll also be on the look out for a clutch for my Deuce.

islandguydon
08-03-2012, 11:38
Bob, Humor is a good thing, don't even know what the stuff looks like.

Anyone bringing a M35 air compressor to the show on Saturday......?

camp9
08-03-2012, 14:18
If anyone is interested in a M101 with surge breaks for $600 let me know and I'll bring it down. PM me with your emal and I'll send you some pics.

Not sure if Ill be making it anymore, the Deuce has developed an idle problem or a fuel pump issue. Started fine this morning in Jackson, drove to Lansing for work, in Lansing it stalled coming off 496 and again and almost every stoplight. RPMs need to be above 600 or it sputters and cuts.
After idling at lunch while I was in the bank it cut again and this time would not start. I had to give it a shot of starting fluid and crank it to start.

Ill search the forums for a solution.

Driving up to Clare and getting stranded if it gets worse doesn't fit into my schedule this weekend ;)

Have you changed the filters or at least drained the water off them ?

citizensoldier

Well a tow bar was found and purchased. He now needs some tow bar feet with 1" pins? Anybody?

maahes
08-03-2012, 17:13
I drained the little water there was a few weeks ago, have not changed the filters yet. Ill go down and drain them again to be safe.

Mogger62, Steveo picked up Dells M109 in Georgia's last fall and drove it back to Michigan, Just out of Georgia the exact same thing happened to him. There is a idle spring in the IP which was broken. If you can get a rebuild kit the spring is included. I am still waiting for the kit to arrive.

Got up early this morning, took a drive to Port Austin for work then went around the thumb and over to Clare. I was impressed with the show. Picked up another mermite can and a Deuce lug wrench. Saw 319, BobH, Natem and others. No need to post pictures 319 has that covered.
Michigan has a good bunch of MVr's.:beer:

Well another show has come and gone, thanks to everyone who helped make it happen.

Special thanks to Jeff at General Jim's, Jay's Sporting Goods for hosting and Mark D. for a excellent dinner. (14 hours slaving over a hot grill)

Also thank you to every one who braved the heat and humidity to come out. It was good to see some that haven been there the last few years and a lot of new folks.

Attendance was a little low but I'm sure a $.50 jump in diesel did not help much. We'll start planning for next year, not on the same date as Thunder over Michigan!
