    was only able to work on project for a half day today.
    Had to set time for tv show being shot about the WC 53 in the back ground in many of my pics! that's another story!
    Gun mounts up and ready, windscreen installed, camo pattern completed!
    Sorry about the crappy pics, lost my lighting!

    Very nice, I really like the look of the 151. The horizontal grill, wider, longer, looks more stable off road. Maybe it is what I always seen on the installation that the MP's were wheeling in, Jefferson Barracks, Viet Nam timeframe. They would call them Kaisers.
    I really like the tires on your 151, I bet they have a good bite, what are they?

    I know what you mean. I also do most, I have one more 13.9 28 to do on my Ford NAA Tractor, but will have to wait till next summer when the rubber is easier to get on with the "spoons". And those are easier to do than the real tires. TRUCKS

    You know I kind of miss the old split rims, which now have made kind of a comeback with the new style military wheels.

    Ok cleaned up all parts today, To me this is critical!
    Want everything going back together again as (new) tip,
    If you have access to a welder, put a weld tab on the end of your clutch adjustment rod. this way you will never over adjust , and get into the situation that I'm in today!
    All new schedule 8 bolts, washers, lock washers!(spend the few cents) and get what you need.
    Pulled all vacuum lines off , getting ready for repaint( sand, Wire brush< bead blast)
    Paint od green (Vietnam era)
    Painting engine gloss black with vacuum lines od green .

    Dipstick , valve cover inlet , = marigold yellow (krylon)
    # colors only on an engine this compact!
