    Bobbed 818 4sale-not mine

    A guy at work told me about a truck that was painted like a "TONKA" truck he saw at a dealer just south of Traverse City. Went looking to take pics, but didn't find that one. I did find this one, though. Looks like a pretty decent job on the bob, don't know about the engine or tranny. I've...

    Cabell, Rather than steal Keith's thread, here's a pic of Pete K's XM708 at one of our fall trail rides. Don't know if this let's you get a vision of the mud flaps or not. I looked for one from the back, but all I have are a lot of the front end. (The photographer was riding in the back of...

    Modeler's Forum

    Seeing the quality of Charles King's work, and knowing that several of us have "dabbled" in scale models for a while, how about a MODELER"S FORUM? I have done a lot of models in 1/35 scale, though I do not claim to be of the detail and quality that Charles has shown. It allows me to have a...

    Help Needed desperately

    This could be an M37 question or general electircal-but I'm perplexed. Bought M37, started and ran fine, except the only electrical that worked was gauges, turn signals (12V), and horn. Rest of wiring was shot, one headlight was black. Bought new harness (second hand, never installed...

    House Haulin' on HGTV

    Anybody ever see this show? Just watched a 10 Ton tractor painted in pretty blue and white move a 4,000 sq foot house on to a barge someplace on the gulf coast. Not even a grunt from the truck. Couple weeks ago they were on Grosse Isle in Detroit moving a house in 3 pieces from one side of...

    My tractor in the classifieds

    I know I just got into the "big trucks" a couple months ago. I wasn't thinking things through. Bought the 348A2 trailer on an impulse, then HAD to have something to tow it with. Now, reality sets in. Anyway, check the ad. Let me know what you think. $5,500 pretty much covers what I've...

    Trailer plug

    for my M348A2N semi trailer. Anyone have a source for the electrical plug for the front of a military semi-trailer? "THEY" cut off the original and wired up a civvy version that only worked the tail lights/turn signals. Managed to jury rig a harness off a standard trailer to work for the...

    mounting composite taillights?

    For all you people that have the composite turn signal/black out lights on your M37s-how did you modify the brackets to fit the lights? For the front: I found that the front marker light brackets have the wire hole too high to fit the wires through and am not happy with cutting the hole...

    Have to sell-hate to do it

    boy oh boy is it hard to type these words. :( I am selling my 53 M37 w/w, 2 parts trucks, and assorted pieces and parts. Long story short, too many of this truck available for our Museum displays and I've decided to move to something a little less common. 1953 M37, w/winch: Exellent...
