    Need help choosing color

    Flat black...**** yeah! That would make a sweet zombie rig.

    Gas tank question

    I'm sure you got it by now, but it does take some wiggling back and forth. I believe I slid mine all the way to the passenger side, tipped it down, then slid it to the drivers side. Good luck, it'll come.

    Speedo Cable-non standard engine/transmission

    So you want to use an M37 speedo connected to your tranny? It will take some maths in order figure out what the correct gear will be for that tranny and speedo head combination. I know different gears are out there; but don't know what specific gear you'll need.

    I don't know...but I'd love to see pics of a 350 in an M37.

    Grandpa's M37

    What a great weekend! Thought I read somewhere that strapping a tank to a cement mixer was the trick. Let me tell you: it was. I had the boys dump about a gallon of pea-sized rocks into it and let it spin for 4 hours. See the three photos below: 1. Before 2. During 3. After!

    Well...the guy didn't charge me because he didn't make it any better. Looks like i'm into either cutting it open and sand-blasting or a whole new tank. Bummer.

    Grandpa's M37

    I gave up on electrolysis last week after two weeks of cooking. It did a pretty good job of cleaning the tank between the baffles; but outside of the baffles still looks nasty. This process works by 'line of sight' so there was no chance of it working behind the baffles. I had a radiator...

    Grandpa's M37

    It's been almost a year since I posted my 'progress'. It's time to get serious about fixing this truck up...but the ol' pocketbook police have advised against it. I put in the Pertronix unit last weekend and she runs strong until my fuel filter plugs. Luckily, cleaning a gas tank is nearly...

    after market carburator

    Ditto. I'm running a fuel pump I got at NAPA. Just say '54 Power Wagon and you'll get the right fuel pump.

    New to me 1953 m37

    if your plans include going back to OD, soft top, etc. why not put it all the way back with a refreshed flathead? Easy for me to say since I already have a flathead.

    Marine Corps or Army M37?

    Thanks! What are the Marine trucks marked as? (I know, this seems like such a noob question, but i can't find any post that explains the dash markings real well)

    Marine Corps or Army M37?

    Tanner - just to be clear, ORD CORPS doesn't stand for the Marines, it stands for Army Ordinance? That would make the most sense.

    Marine Corps or Army M37?

    Guys - this has been bugging me all week about the M37: on the dash plate, it is marked "ORD CORPS". On the hood, you can see under the last OD paint job, US ARMY...and the big white star is a tell-tale ARMY sign. After much time spent searching SS and G741, I've come to the conclusion that...

    Grandpa's M37

    I got the truck started again on Sunday. In my lazyness to fiddle around with points and such, I only put the two top screws on the distributor cover. My guess is that the little spring in the distributor cap wasn't making contact. Live and learn! RE: Electronic Ignition. Grandpa would say...
