    1951 M-37 generator won't polarize

    I had to do it around 8 times to get it to be polarize and start charging. I have no idea why it took so many times.

    Simple axle swap question ?

    Also, the Dana 60 front axle has the leaf spring mount cast into the center housing. Moving it towards the center of truck to add a weld on leaf mount would put the differential near the middle of the truck - no good. Narrowing a Dana 60 is not complicated. Cut axle tube at knuckle, knock out...

    Jakes Flea MArket MV show/parts sale - Barto, PA April 22-23, 2017

    The website says this show is an indoor sale - which I suspect is an error for 2 reasons. First, the fall show is both indoor and outside with a nice mix of MV vendors and hobby sellers. And second, the website has the dates off by 1 for the weekend. I suspect it is both an indoor and outdoor...

    M105 and S737 Gichner Build (Camper)

    If you upgrade to the crank up landing wheel setup, I could use your single wheel - if unbent, to replace mine. The dent in the o.d. is ok.

    WC-51 gun mount

    I have the blueprints for the M24A2 and M24A3. They are readily available in either US Army manual TM 9-224 or TM 9-8030. I can check tomorrow. They leave out the height on the pintal vertical pipe - which I have as well. I think I got them from the Carlisle US Army War College Library - it...

    2010 Fall Rausch Creek MV Rally!!!

    Wow that snuck up fast!! My wife asked last night we (son & I) were going. That remains to be seen as $$ is very low and the project list is very long.

    Wc/m37 brakes

    Also, keep an eye out for M101a1 trailer axles. When I lubed my M101 bearings - I was suprised to see new axle nuts and shoes. The lining was ~ 7/16" thick - much more than on all the M37's used used I have used. Sadly, my local shoe reliner went out of business years ago. NAPA had them as B-89...

    Dodge WC51 M24A1 Gun Mount

    Nice shots of the data plate - thanks. If you're using a 6" L mount bracket -what WWII Dodge truck do you have? Anything is posible, but thiis is news to me as the 6" L bracket was only used on post WWII M37s as far as I know. Maybe someone swapped a M24A3 onto your WWII Dodge and put a M24A2...

    M37 hub install question

    Frt hubs procedure is the same as the rear. It is a good idea to replace the brass front axle bushings just inside the knuckles while you are there. The 40+ yrs old bushings are likely worn out, causing leaks and excess axle wear. Ft lbs on the inner nut? Sorry, not spec on hand (I could...

    M37 Plowing snow yesterday.

    Ditto. We got 12" by me. It is amazing how neighbors suddenly like the M37 w/ plow when it comes time to clear the ends of their driveways (repeatedly) after the town trucks plow the street. I took some photos. They look just like yours though as I copied your plow frame setup. :)

    hub leak.

    Classic hub seal leak . . . Congrats - that is a classic hub seal failure leaking rear end oil. The seal is simple to replace - you just need a 3/8" and 9/16" open end wrenches to pull the axle and a little silicone for the seal flange. Repack the hub bearings w/ grease while you are there -...

    Is GL actually a Used Car Dealer?

    The DMV in PA treated GL as a dealer when I registered my M101a1 trailer.
