    Dual wheels on a M37

    I have seen guys that own early Dodge Power Wagons add dual wheels by adding longer wheel lugs. The offset of the wheel centers was sufficient to allow this

    Old style combat rims on a trailer

    Be careful with combat rims on a civilian Power Wagon, (B1PW, W300M, WM300). The brake drums are different on the civilian model and my crack when the combat rims are mounted. Double check with Vintage Power Wagons in Iowa. Goo luck.

    Can towing with the rear driveshaft connected cause case or transmission failure?

    M37s and M43s have full floating rear ends. Pull the rear axles and cover the hub to keep the gear oil from leaking out. Disconnect the front drive shaft and you should be able to tow it.

    Dealing with a wreck

    Be proactive. See a doctor NOW to get a baseline assessment of your physical condition. Then keep a journal as others have stated to see how your injuries go. If an insurance adjuster calls, he will most likely ask you how you are. DON'T say fine. Ask who it is and who he is representing...

    Sparte, WI

    There seem to be quite a few 900 series trucks coming up for auction either now or very soon. I am interested in an M931 / 932 series tractor. Has anyone looke at the trucks at this location? From the pictures posted by GL they look nice for the most part but one or more sets of eyes up close...

    Alas we must say goodbye to you Multifuel.

    I would bet on the International. Not only from a personal bias but, they have been around forever, parts are cheaper than a Cat and they are less susceptible to fuel contamination. Get a non eletronic version.

    Flathead fever..

    Very cool pictures. Keep them coming. I am working on a replacement engine for my 1967 Dodge WM300 Power Wagon. The original engine was junk and I found a 1942 251 industrial engine from a military Hobart welder. The cam and distributor will get changed but other than needing a valve...

    M43/M37 camshaft

    I have a 1967 WM300 Power Wagon with the 251 flathead engine. Very similar to the 230 that you have. Make sure the oil pump is out as well as the distributor. both are gear driven off the cam. the oil pump is in the middle of the block at the bottom. If all else fails, call Vintage Power...
