On the civilian side AM General stopped offering a gasoline option after a very short period of time. The 5.7L 350 Chevrolet was unsuitable for the weight and demands of the truck. GM decided not to offer further warranty coverage on new units, too high of a failure rate and warranty costs to GM.
I love the No-Spill too, have about 15 of the suckers use the 2.5 gal. ones for mixed fuel for the 2 strokes. I've never spilled more than a drop or two with them. I recommend removing the ratcheting portion with diagonal cutters. I leave the lids slightly loose for venting in storage.
Because when my truck was rebuilt there weren't such parts available. Even all 4 fenders were custom made from Oshkosh blueprints but of one gage thicker material. Current rebuilders have it easy with readily available parts, we had to have them custom made or pay Oshkosh a fortune.
