    1953 Gasser dash panel question-What did they look like?

    Got a picture of the back of the panel? There looks to be a couple of screws not associated with gauge or light brackets. Curious as to what they are holding in the upper and lower-left positions from the upper-left gauge (can't tell what gauge through the lens...). Are there marks...

    1953 Gasser dash panel question-What did they look like?

    That looks like an M38 dash panel with an air pressure gauge hacked into the space below the speedo normally occupied by the high beam indicator light.

    MRAP wheels on 5 ton?

    @SandBar If your goal, as stated, is better on-road handling you are better off sticking with duals. Duals will provide a much more stable on-road ride for you. Unless your "rare" off-roading includes a lot of deep mud or very soft, marshy ground you will be surprised how capable duals can...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Didn't do it this week, but over Christmas I added a Haldex A72420-style alcohol evaporator on my '52 so I can fire her up for some enjoyable "refreshing" (she's a no heater truck) below-freezing drives without any frozen air line issues in-between snows and whenever there is no "Truck...

    M-52 Recovery

    It's a Leopard 2. Looks like a CAF 2A6 as it appears to have the additional boxes on the turret bustle that their 2A4's did not have, at least from the factory. Easy way to distinguish a Leopard (1 or 2) from similar-profile MBT's (like the Abrams) are the distinctive triangular-looking...
