    i just found the same item on one of the auction sites, They are 21 inches long, but I'm not sure if i can post a link of it or not for reference. Don't want to break the rules.

    What are these for exactly?

    Ok, I've had these stakes for a long time. They are some sort of bed stakes I bought several years ago to fix my troop seats in my old M35. They were not an exact fit, however, they did the job. These are wood stakes with two holes drilled in one end diagonally apart and one hole near the...

    Deuce low power.

    I had that problem with my old deuce and found the lift pump in the fuel tank to be the problem. Changed that out, it ran good again. Make sure it's delivering fuel to the IP. It can run with a bad LP. Not sure if anyone else would agree though. Just an uneducated shade tree here.

Well I guess it smelled like oil and old dirty canvas.... Ahhhh absolute bliss. As time goes on, life took its course...

    Second Gear

    Well I'm not sure about the whole starting out in second, but my truck doesn't like to shift out of second when I'm down shifting to a stop. I'm guessing my syncro's are probably messed up, but I'm not sure what kind of a fix that is, so I haven't tried to tackle it. If it's an easy fix, I may...

    M109A3 conversion in progress, setting the standard

    srodocker: Click on the file in yellow and open it manually. That's how I have to do it. Mastergunner53: Wonderful job, we need to see lots more of this. That is some great craftsmanship. Not many good carpenters around anymore. My father's a perfectionist and I'd love to be as good as he...
