    Default First MUTT

    Hello everyone, my name is Kyle. New to the site and after years of searching finally picked up my first A2. I tried joining the G838 forum but have to wait till they fix it. My MUTT is a 1973, was cut but in such a way that the frame rails we're untouched. Hard to explain, but it was in three pieces. The reweld looks done correctly too. I will post pictures soon.

    My father and grandfather got me hooked on MVs when I was a kid and my dad owns an A1 that sat for 25 years unfortunately, and the body is pretty shot. He originally drove an A2 in the Army but he could only find the A1. I'm still hoping to salvage it somehow in the future.

    Look forward to learning what I can here to keep my A2 on the road and bring my dad's A1 back to life with your help.

    Thank you. Have you ever come across one cut from the front roughly 3 in up from the frame along the front fender to the floor boards then out to the sides below the seats the n back in along the rear fender Wells roughly 3 in and out the rear? From what I can see it was in three pieces this way. I have read/ seen pictures of the typical cuts, this one is unique in that the supporting rails are untouched.

    I'm working on the brakes right now. First was the oil change and ignition Gremlins. Went to solid state I believe Swiss controls. Had signs of bad coil turned out to be a loose points plate ah the simple things. She is in pretty solid shape from what I can tell.

    I’m confused. The m151 does not have frame.
    Have owned A whole bunch of jeeps, trucks and armor. Still have a few.

    I love my carbon footprint and no I don't own a Toyota.

    Welcome. It sounds almost like the Y cut method of demill. Making these M151's so no one should be able to use them was up to the local units that had them at the time they were sold out.

    We need pictures!

    I use "frame rails" and "channels to describe the main structrual support members of the body. I'll get more pics up soon.

    Hello everyone. It's been awhile and I posted some new pics. I am currently replacing the entire hydraulic brake system and had a question on whether the hub needs to be torn apart to get the wheel cylinders out. The TM says they should be able to slide out from behind the hub but the cyliders mount for the brake line is too thick to slide past the slot. Has anyone else had a similar issue?

    More picks to come soon. Thanks
