    Steel Soldiers, users age

    81 now, but that will not change the poll, since I was over 60 when it started and I responded. Have not managed to divest any of my machines, but have added a few since the start of the poll.

    What to offer on M37?

    Way back in 1963 I bought my first M37 for $200 and spent about $100 to get it on the road. My brother-in-law bought one at the same time for $300. They were surplus to the Forest Service and had some rough sheet metal. Door dings, curled fenders and wavy front bumpers. Over time we traded parts...

    What to offer on M37?

    I purchased several for parts out of a salvage yard and the average I paid was over $2K. The yard owner was firm at $3K for the complete not running units so I made a package offer on all that he had.

    The unofficial g749 picture thread

    Your M211 bed boards are super good looking. Functional as well. Our Weasel stories sound about the same except yours looks a lot nicer than mine.

    The unofficial g749 picture thread

    Ah yes, chain keeps from bending the stakes with a load of grain. My father-in-laws 57 Chevy with a Tempe bed was equipped with chains as well. ~~ How about M37keppy starting a thread about his Weasel!!!

    1941 GMC K18 lives again

    Hence my comment about "real screamer" with the 3 cyl Detroit.

    1941 GMC K18 lives again

    Yes on the 4BT fitting. I once rode around in an M37 that was fitted with a Detroit Diesel 3 cylinder out of a Gamma Goat. The owner switched centers in Goat wheels to make them fit the M37. Duece transmission and more. It was a screamer in more ways than one. Something like that might fit as well.

    1941 GMC K18 lives again

    Having looked under the hood of several K18's I would have to comment that as nice an idea that is, shoehorning a Duramax in that engine pit would take massive effort.

    1941 GMC K18 lives again

    It may well be a GMC 248 CID engine. In any case it is a GMC and not a Chevy. Found this post from a thread about K18 GMC's Jeff Lakaszcyck 02-25-2012, 21:50 That's quite a rare truck you have there. The CF 351, or K18 in Signal Corps parlance, was used as a transmitting and receiving station...

    1941 GMC K18 lives again

    NO! Almost positive the K18 GMC came with a 270 CID GMC engine. (and military version to boot.)

    Seabee forklift

    I managed to reduce the file size of the last part of the previous video clip to where it would upload to SS. New key switch is working great.

    Seabee forklift

    So, ... it took a while to find a file format I could get small enough to get uploaded. That, and I trimmed the length to a third and shifted to only 25 frames per second. (Ahab) We have the telescoping mirror in our shop, but as previously mentioned, the mirror has been broken out by our...

    Seabee forklift

    I managed to visit the farm today and my son gave me a hand checking the stoplight operation. Turns out the tail light operates off the push/pull switch on the dash that is powered by the accessory/run positions on the ignition switch. The stop light that I could not check without a mirror or...
