    M1008 rear carrier

    Good eye. But why does that matter?

    What did you do to your trailer today.

    More progress on the m416. Added the metal brake lines and LED lights and wiring. Still need to install a new rubber brake hose and bleed out the brakes. I’ll have to check the bearings too. I kinda like how the m101a3 jack turned out.

    Looks like a nice starting point.

    Interesting M37 from Fort Hood

    He’s still around and he still has the EOD m37, just never on the site anymore.

    Steering wheel removal.

    Here’s what the military steering wheel puller looks like. Something like this and some heat will probably do it.

    What did you do to your trailer today.

    Made some progress on the goofy looking m416. Nothing special up close but it’s green. I just want to get something done completely, even if it’s the easiest project.

    TH400 to NV4500 crossmember

    I think I used 2” square tube. Everything worked fine.

    Welcome to the site, that looks like a real nice trailer. At least someone figured it out after only snapping two of the wheel studs.

    I Bought a 100 Year Old Army Trailer Today

    The trailer was a really good deal, and right in town too. The seller even delivered it for free since we didn’t haggle. The tires do look pretty good for 100 years old! I really think that after checking the hubs this could still be used in a farm or similar application as it sits (of course...

    I Bought a 100 Year Old Army Trailer Today

    I might have to check with organizations like that to find put more about it. I don’t think they were actually used in the war, I suspect they were ordered because of the war and never used (probably too late to need them) Based on newspaper ads there were some big surplus auctions in the US...

    I Bought a 100 Year Old Army Trailer Today

    So a quick search of that newspaper archive site showed ads based upon the one in the original post started showing up in California newspapers around October of 1921. Prices were $275 then eventually $200. It looks like an earlier ad with a different picture showed up in a Davenport, Iowa...

    Price Check on a M100

    $400 is a great deal if it’s solid. The lunette itself is the same as on m416s (although some early m100s did have the thinner style) and will bolt up as long as they didn’t ruin the casting (which looks okay from the pic).

    M936 Power Divider - Incredibly Stiff

    Here are the manuals you want to read, you’re looking at the book for an earlier model truck. https://www.steelsoldiers.com/threads/tms-for-the-939-series-trucks.79228/

    WTB M1101 M1102 Trailer Bow Mounting Bracket Set

    I should have a set of them except one’s missing, I think it’s a corner but I’ll check. Maybe someone else will have a single one kicking around.
