    What is this?

    That appears to be an aircraft style plug, probably from an M37 230 ci engine.

    Dodge WC clutch

    Does anyone know how many of the 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton Dodge clutch kits interchange. There is a 10" and 11" with 1" spline and 1 3/8" spline. I'm looking for a good source for the 1/2 ton clutch preferably new and not rebuilt.

    Etw1 & engine tuning

    On many of the M37 carbs I've worked on with the same problem they seem to have a non working accelerator pump. If you open the carb up and remove the accelerator pump you can see two check balls in the well. What happens is they get reversed. Someone puts them in the wrong hole. If they...

    WF 32 Right hand drive

    Thanks Gordon. That is a big help. Is there a site that will decipher the build card?

    WF 32 Right hand drive

    Thank you. I should have thought of that. I'm just not used to seeing Daytons on a truck that small. The wheels don't say anything on them that I can find.

    WF 32 Right hand drive

    Here is the build card for the truck, but I can't decifer all of it. The build date is March 31, 1942 and the destination is Capetown, S. Africa. Does anyone know if there is a site to help decifer the build card.

    Does the M35A3 really make a good FD Brush Truck

    I have a 1999 A3 and I love it, but the bad part of it is the tires. They don't make them for the military anymore and they are expensive if you buy them new. Be careful because a rock and destroy the sidewall in a hurry. Better see if you can look around and find some spares. You're going...

    WF 32 Right hand drive

    Me too. It will be a fun one to restore as it's all there and the engine turns over nicely. I just wish I could figure out what it is.

    WF 32 Right hand drive

    the stainless cross is still on the front and says Made in USA. It was painted over with red oxide primer and olive drab just like the rest of the truck. It does look to be a very ordinary WF 32 other than the right hand drive and those wheels. I sent pictures over to friends in England, but...

    WF 32 Right hand drive

    Thanks Gordon. I agree totally. It has Made in USA on it so I'm sure it's Detroit built. I'm hoping the Chrysler build card is on it's way.

    WF 32 Right hand drive

    They do look like a Dayton wheel, but the way they bolt up is different. I did find the correct VIN 81332000 so it should be a 42 1 ton or 1 1/2 ton, but we still can't figure out the right hand drive and those strange wheels.

    WF 32 Right hand drive

    The previous owner's father purchased the vehicle from a government sale after the war. They used it on a farm and never titled it. I sent the information on it to the Chysler museum and they are working on it. I don't believe it ever left the US and it is military as the base color is olive...
