    Speedo correction for larger tires?

    Check on one of the parts sellers like Eastern Surplus etc. you will need to know the specific vehicle and other details before you look into it.

    Historical Interest: Lawsuit between Allis Chalmers and Continental over injection pump trade secrets

    Thanks for a very interesting read. Many subtle and some dramatic twists and turns along the way. You would not think the humble deuce would have been involved in such intrigue over its engine. It also seems a lot more could have come from Continental and A-C in this area given time and research.

    Welcome from just up the road in Livermore. Definitely looks like a refueling rig. Perhaps aircraft/helicopters. Is there a reel for a ground wire with a big alligator clip on it? If not fuel perhaps some sort of chemical perhaps?

    Rodent, when you got your title did it indicate it was ex military? if it was a cucv it might describe it as only a Chevrolet of a given year. Check and let us know because I thought the five year collector plates were just for civilian vehicles of the so called antique or horseless carriage...

    It does not sound like the rest of us can count on support from Tennessee I suppose.

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I also thought that just working on a better interpretation of the law that was passed might be in most of our own best interests. However, this tactic would require a fairly substantial monetary risk on someones part in going the court route. Not to mention a potential battle that could drag...
