    New guy from centeral NC

    well if you are still looking and have the means to ship or are comfortable driving from MD - mine is up for sale. I moved to NC but my deuce is still in MD (have friends looking after it for me) even have a set of fmtv wheels/tires and adapters to go with it.

    Windshieldframe and Wiper mod

    is that seal only on 3 sides of each window? or does it go all the way over the top as well?

    Looking for information on buying and driving a deuce in va.

    hardest thing about the seals is just dealing with the weight of the parts.

    How easy is it to use the Hi/Lo control on the transfer case ?

    push pull cables have been used for manual transmissions for 3 decades. I think they hold up just fine. for air you can rig up two cylinders to push in series. each with double throw (not spring return) energize both to pull and it goes into low, energize both to push and it goes into high...

    Deuce 3 Battery Setup

    if you use a vanner battery equalizer (good for battery health anyways) then use the 12volt tap to run a charge controller you can keep a bank of whatever number of 12 volt batteries in parallel charged as you want.

    Quick questions on M35A2

    if you want a daily driver that can use the same free fuel as the deuce then look into an older mercedes turbo diesel like a 300D - I've got an 87 3L and it will run all the same blends as the deuce (except straight gasoline, which is emergency situation only) (if you get one, get a 2.5L they...

    How easy is it to use the Hi/Lo control on the transfer case ?

    push pull cable all the way - that or pneumatics/hydraulics (two cylinders with the air bled from the system should give very consistent movement and just have to run a hose or two) PS. good to see you post again - I've been wondering how this project was coming along since I still am hunting...

    Maxspeed3's Deuce Build Thread

    rather than using wd40 - use some ospho for the flash rust - you can paint right over the ospho

    Front hub / bearing stuck!

    Front hub / bearing stuck!

    blue wrench I'd carefully heat things up - just not hot enough to damage them, then try the hammer again. can also use a hammer and punch to tap around just the bearing race. to make a tool I would use a section of channel with a hole in the middle large enough for the splined shaft to slit...
