    Jack just picked up a couple A3's last month I'm not sure if he has them at his yard yet but he sure has a slug of older trucks and quite a few 5 tons

    Finally made it out to Jack's today - This place should be a historical landmark! It's like the library of Alexandria, except with military vehicles instead of books. There are more possible projects there than any one person can dream up. Awesome guy & worth the trip.

    He certainly does! He makes a point to have at least 1 of every model of military vehicle. Usually he keeps a minimum of about 20 of each military vehicle. As for deuce and a halfs, he has hundreds
    of them.

    Jack has several yards full of trucks around the area, and he will be glad to show you them all. One of his yards consists of several acres of exclusively m35 variants, packed together like sardines. As for m35 parts, his main yard is scattered with hundreds of engines, transmissions, rear-ends, beds, anything really.

    If you are going to visit him, please give him a call ahead of time. (520) 574-0300 is his phone number. If he knows that a fellow MV enthusiast is coming he will be better prepared to be able to spend the entire day with you shooting the breeze and talking OD green. Also, if you are looking for a specific part he likes having a head start so that he can pull it before you arrive.

    Additionally, if you have anything that you want to trade, bring it with you. I have found that Jack actually likes trades.

    Finally, like I have mentioned before, don't beat him up on his prices, atleast when you first meet him. His is a great guy, but he also knows the value of his things and doesn't like being lowballed. At first he may be hesitant to sell just anything to someone that he doesn't know.

    That being said, the more you deal with him, the more he will open up with you. Repeat customers end up getting better deals, and the more things you buy from him (and the more he sees that you are serious about MVs) the more he will be willing to sell you. I have gotten to the point where he would sell me anything in his yard if I want to buy it.

    Anyhow, have a great day, and a great time at Jack's! It truly is a military vehicle playground and I promise you'll love it.

    I will call him for sure before the trip, thank you for his number! I'm definitely not the "American Picker" type, and I have a ton of respect for guys like him who know what they have and what its worth to them.
    If it all works out, I will report back with pics.

    Hi, Trying to locate a inside fuel tank fuel pump on a M35-A3, multi-fuel. I believe it was built in 1988. Thanks, delta93ej.
