    Operation Urgent Restoration II The M715

    So the latest saga of the M715 was sourcing a flex fuel line that goes from the frame over to the engine. No local place could make one, big surprise, or was willing to look into it. So after a search on line I found these push-lok fittings and hose. I needed two female 5/16 inverted flare...

    Over the past two days I managed to replace the LH wheel well which finished up the repair work on the bed. Moved on to the repair panel for the rear LH portion of the cab, alot of time spent fitting this. I still need to drill a 2 1/2" hole for the battery cables and replace the cab mount...

    Operation Urgent Restoration II The M715

    Now that the Gama Goat is "finished" it's time to start on another project, the M715. My first purchase was a M715 mud truck project fail, I purchased the body only, the PO sold the chassis off to a friend. The bed was rotten but it had the all important tailgate which was worth more than I...
