    M38A1 YS 950S Carb Doesn't Fit

    I purchased a 1953 M38A1 awhile back. It had a Carter YF carburetor when I purchased it, the YF is standard on commercial jeep F head engines. My YF leaked a little, and ran a little rough. So I found a Carter YS 950 at one of the California meets, and had it rebuilt by a competent carb shop. So...

    11.00X20 NDCC Tires on 9.00X20 Rims, Going on an M35A2

    I looked in the archives, and couldn't find this exact question. I am going to be changing all 10 tires on my M35A2, and I would like to go with the larger diameter 11.00X20 NDCC tires to keep the original look, and pick up a couple miles an hour top end. I know the tires will fit on the rims...

    Thanks to Guyfang, Chris Miggins, and Robo McDuff

    Many Thanks to Guyfang, Chris Miggins, and Robo McDuff for their unselfish time spent digging up TMs for a 1977 MAN 4X4 5 Ton truck. The TMs are of course printed in German, and search as we might, we were unable to find any in English. After some head scratching, we did find a company that...

    Is Bobs ARMY/NAVY Store in Mojave, CA. still open? I've been by several times over the last several months usually on a Saturday and he's been closed. Out back there's a couple of trailers and an M38 left, just about everything else outside is gone.

    Deuce Front Bumper Tow Bar Mount (again)

    There are quite a few posts in the archives on this subject, and I read through quite a few of them, and watched a few You Tube vids as well, before coming up with this idea. As with others who posted on the subject of front bumper tow bar mounts, one of my main reasons was to get the 100+ pound...

    Deuce Companion Flange Torque

    Couldn't find this issue in the archives. I'm installing a new companion flange and output shaft seals in my transmission. (pic is the old one) The TM calls out for a torque setting of 120-150ft lbs. To get a gap in the castle nut to line up with the cotter key hole in the main shaft, I have to...

    Deuce Horn Problem.

    I have been going round and round with the horn on my Deuce. When operated it sounds like I have half a horn, and my air pressure is over 100psi. I have done an archive search and couldn't find a problem quite like this. So I replaced the Solenoid thinking that was the problem, and checked the...

    M878A1 (Ottawa Mod. 50)

    I've never seen the military version of this truck before, some commercial truckers call them Yard Goats. The local scrap dealer in town purchased this M878A1 from the Hawthorne Munitions Depot auction back in April 2017. There was only one post on this truck in the SS archives, and it referred...

    1953 m104 ???

    A question for the trailer experts, what is it. I found this Fruehauf M104 trailer dated 10-53 in Yerington, NV., out in front of a restaurant doing duty as a sign holder. I'm no trailer expert, but I've never seen an M104 quite like this one. It has retractable struts on all 4 corners, and...
