    The Chrysler 265 & The M37

    The CDN trucks also have a hood that is slightly different so the safety catch latches properly. The rod bolts for the 265 has a very unique flattened head because of the small rotational clearance and are very scarce. I have a 265 that has been balanced with split exhaust and an Edmonds...

    There is a worm gear on the end of the steering shaft which turns a quadrant gear. The quadrant gear is part of the shaft that pitman arm bolts on to. I have rebuilt boxes that have either worn worms or gears or both. If that is the case then when you try to adjust the box with the adjusting...

    M37 Hesitation

    You are correct the piston works against a spring. When you hit the throttle there is a sudden drop in vacuum and the spring pushes the piston in the opposite direction and pumps fuel into the carburetor. Figure 03-1 in the M-37 ORD 9 is a good exploded view of the carb.

    Engaging Front Axle

    Have the truck on a slight incline, be in neutral then engage the 4-wheel drive. Truck should roll down incline. If it doesn't it means there is some problem.

    M37 Hesitation

    Stock M-37 carb has a vacuum operated accelerator pump not a mechanical one so you won't see gas flowing into the carb by hit the gas petal. Seen this many times usually the problem is the accelerator pump piston leather seal or the cylinder it rides in is oversize or worn. Unfortunately you...

    Trailer Mounted Fuel Tank

    I am mounting my MEP-003 on an M-101-A2 trailer and would like to add an extra fuel tank. I believe the Military did have some trailers with a fuel tank mounted on them. The same fuel tank as the M-37's used. Any body have some pictures of where it was located and how this was done?
