    Got the rear most section cleared out half way decent. Man, there's a ton of crap in it. Second section has a bunch of busted glass I've got piled up, but I need the shop vac to get that out.

    I did find the headlight mounts, so that's great. I just need to get them from Dawn now.

    All I really want is a 114 or a 113 for armor and I would be happy. Maybe someday.

    I may need to make a trip over there to get that CUCV fuel tank and bring you that capacitor. What's your schedule next week.

    Oh....and I may look at your new toy.
    And the Dark Man said to him, "I will set you high in my artillery. You are the man I want." Then he saw an army of ten thousand driving across the desert and into the mountains, a rough beast of an army whose time had come at last. And riding in a giant tanker, he saw himself, and knew that the truck was filled with Napalm. Behind him, in a long column, were trucks loaded with bombs, mines, plastic explosive, flame throwers, flares, heat seeking missiles, grenades, machine guns and rocket launchers. The dance of death was about to begin, and already the strings of the fiddles and guitars were smoking and the stench of brimstone and cordite filled the air.

    Crap, I forgot all about that tank. Let me get out there and dig it out from around back. I know I'll be around here Today-Tomorrow. Then Friday and the weekend.

    Also I've been looking at things. (And asking wgtactical dozens of questions) I think the detroit diesel is out. They simply weigh too much and a 3-53 or even a 4-71 probably wouldn't have enough umph. I've had other things mentioned, 4BT would work, but they're spendy to say the least. (I would love to have one though) A 6v53 or 71 would be too large. A 6BT again, too big, too heavy. The engine needs to be smaller like a SBC. So I've got a few leads on a 6.2 diesel. Thinking it through, it's not a terrible idea. I already have a CUCV. Why not keep an engine family around in the fleet? Also width being the issue, I've been eying the 6.5 turbo setup from a van/HMMWV. I think this packaging would be adaptable in there. The upside is that it's 26" wide as well and only 175-200lbs heavier than a SBC. Since I don't have a power pack to work with, I'm probably going to fab a lot of things. I think I can shave off some weight by ditching the idea of the fan/belt system the M114 had and switch to several of these 24v fans I have. Also I'll be using a aluminum radiator as well.

    If you use a torch to straighten the bend in he hull, note that you should use hydrogen and oxygen. When using acetylene on aluminum, the aluminum absorbs carbon from the acetylene burn at an accelerated rate, which makes it very brittle and prone to cracking without very much flexing. Hydrogen burns clean, and actually is used in this fashion to torch weld aluminum joints.

    This probably isn't critical to your application, but if the hull does crack there because of that the only fix is to cut the section of hull out and replace it. Don't let the hydrogen scare you.

    M114s are a cool little vehicle. Last one I had was a T114 12T715 (I believe was the serial number).
