    M989a1 trailer Davit

    I discovered the M989a1 HEMAT has a Davit option when I was reading the nice new manual that was in the tool box. I don't think I have ever seen one floating around on surplus, but it would be nice to add to our trailer. Does any one have a clue as to a source for the military Davit? We also...

    M211 series lug nuts

    We need to recover a M211 series deuce which will require removing the wheels. I have found mention on SS that the CCKW lug nut arrangement is the same as the M211 series. There is no mention as to nut size. Is it safe to assume the lugnut set up is the same as the M35 also? (1 1/2 inch hex and...
