ATTN: M43 OWNERS NEAR SOUTH DAKOTA
would really like to be able to look at, photograph and measure the bunks in the back of an ambulance.
So i could get an idea of the feasibility of making them for mine.
I am in rapid city
Thank you in advance
Trying to figure out what exactly the window sweeps and channels need to look like in profile so i can get the best stuff.
I think the sides need to be L shaped because the windows have no frames.
But inside the door is a U shaped deal and it looks like it had fuzzy stuff on it
I sure hope helitool/uglytruckling still sell the disc brakes conversion kits and I noticed that the the cut off date for the kits is 1964.
I have a 65 m43b1.
I sent ray an email but i think he lives in Thailand now.
I have read on antique motorcycle forums that they use oil of wintergreen and alcohol to restore old rubber items.
The alcohol opens up the rubber so that the oil can get in.
Apparently they use it on impossible to replace spark plug boots and stuff like that.
I have a really cool military gas...
bought my ambulance and the po installed the 318
but the e brake handle and connecting rod is missing
the brake itself is still there
the t-case levers are mounted on a big metal plate that is part of the conversion
does the e brake lever go on the same big bolt that the t case levers are on...
Somewhere I saw a cross reference chart for bearings and seals for our beloved
but for the life of me I don't know where it is.
can any of you cool cats help me out?
I am down to only having to bleed the brakes and pack the bearings and I will start driving my ambulance every day.
the PO cut the bunks out of the back of my ambulance and i would like to at least replace the two that look like padded benches
i still have the small upper passenger side one
but none of the others
i still have the hinges mounted but nothing else
I gave myself exhaust poisoning
there is a huge leak under the truck
and I got gassed three days ago
I can still smell and taste it
I ended up with flu like symptoms
today I am going to try and get under there and cut out the bad stuff and replace it
It didn't seem that bad.
But it was...
i have searched ,searched and searched some more.
and i find old answers to this question
and every answer has dead links
either the seller died
or the place is no longer in business
does anyone know where i can get the 9x16 tubes and flaps with the right valve?
the m43 i just bought is stuck in 1st gear
i cannot move the lever period
which means i cant unload it from the trailer
is there a trick i dont know?
it has a casting number that says c97247
any help would be a godsend!
i have a m43b1 that has had a 318 installed the PO said he wired the lights to work
my issue is i want all the gauges ,horn,heater and stuff to work as well
but all that is 24v
how do i make it so everything but the engine (i guess) is 24v?
any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated!
