    Mighty Mite Questions

    So I am thinking about getting a mighty mite project (like I need another project). So what are the odd quirks about them and what parts are hard to locate, are usually damaged, or things not to do? (I heard jacking from the differential for example). Any common spots to check for damage on a...

    134 L-head differences

    So my M38 needs a motor. It has a GPW motor currently in it. As far as a long block, what are the differences between MB/GPW, CJ2A, and M38 engines? I know of the timing chain/timing gear changes; what else is there. All I have found are CJ2A engines.....

    M43 Recovery

    So today Jeff and I went to the local surplus place and picked up a M43. I am just cleaning it out and doing some minor work to it before it goes back and gets sold. This one has been sitting there since 1985 and came from the CO NG.

    My new 1951 M38 project

    So I have an opportunity to pick up a 1951 M38 with arctic top and heater; what is it realistically worth? It's been sitting since the 1970's and has virtually no rust.

    Finally restoring the M37

    Building a Reo gasser engine stand

    Maccus asked me for measurements on my stand, so I figured I may as well make a post. The base is 45.5" long by 35" wide. There are 3 4x4's that run the 45.5" with the middle one centered. The end cross pieces are 2x10's 35" long. There are also two 2x6's 35" long spaced evenly for the...

    TM9 Ordnance paint durability

    Who has used the TM9 Ordnance enamel paint? And are you happy with it? I am looking for 23070 and they don't make that in the polyurethane, just the enamel. So, does the enamel fade like Gillespie if left outdoors? Has anyone tried a satin clear over enamel to keep from fading? Thoughts?

    Dustless Media Blasting

    Has anyone else used this? They use a crushed glass water slurry mix. I just had my M37 bed done ($250). After talking to the guy and looking on the net; it is way faster than regular blasting and takes 1/6 to 1/10 of the abrasives normal sandblasting would use. They claim to be able to do a car...

    M37 Greek Harness questions

    I have read/searched about the greek harnesses. As I understand it they are a suitable replacement but are slightly different. So who has one and what do they think of them? I believe they use colored wires instead of black, have no wire markers, and use packard connectors instead of douglas-is...
