    I'm looking at the operating tm's and looks like the M51A2 has a transfer pump to move fuel from the right to left tank and the 817 just switches which tank fuel comes from (with a switch between the driver door and seat). If that's the case, I have a M51.

    She's definitely an M51. The air cleaner on the passenger side is the dead giveaway.

    Originally I thought so also but he swapped fenders and air cleaner.

    Unless somehow she was an 817 originally? As someone trying to rescue one of these myself, now you have me curious!

    Seeing your avatar, I'm 99.99% sure she's an M51. Great truck nevertheless. You make me want to pursue the one I have/had a lead on more. I've got an M928A1 that needs a motor but who said one MV is enough?

    Here is my data plate. Since it references multifuel, it has to be an M51A2. I thought it listed the model somewhere on the plate also but I don't see it.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...f32fd94381.jpg

    Title says 68. Don't know how to verify that though. Weird thing is he gave me the original hood and fenders which look like they come from an 817.
