    Oh my god....Wow! I’m in Elkhorn, WI.....and literally 30 minutes away, you have the part! I had already started to tool up for this, called AM Castle metals for a quote on a block of 4340...way to come through Kenny!

    p.s. If Steel Soldier takes you up on the offer, I’ll cover 1/2 of the cost for him (let me know where to pay). Material and heat treat alone would be over $1,000 (I’m using a 3 axis mill....it would of taken 6 set ups to make this part).

    I'm heading back to Elkhorn from NC now with my new to me M920. After I get back I have a meeting planned with the guy so if the deal goes through I will let you know.

    And I'm only unloading in Elkhorn before taking it home to Waukesha. Feel free to stop in anytime.

    Sounds like fun! Certainly, letís wait for Steel Soldiers to ok this (Iíll cover 1/2). If there is still a need for a CAD drawing, I can create once I have the dimensions.

    That’s incredibly nice of you to offer to pay half, Bob, but don’t feel like you have to. I think it’s definitely worthwhile to get a CAD drawing made of it. I’m sure there are other M756A2 owners out there who are looking for one. They may even be able to get the price down a little if several of them get trunnions made at the same time. I like the idea of building a library of rare part CAD drawings so that current and future owners can keep these trucks going.

    I agree a CAD file of a trunnion would be a good thing. My M756 works weekly and if the trunnion broke I would be in the same position Chris is in. The side pocket adapters are hard to find also but also rarely used.

    I’ll create a CAD drawing as soon as I can get the requested dimensions. Yes, I’d like to pay 1/2 on Kenny’s Trunion (a small way to say thanks for what this site does to help us all).

    if there is a need down the road, a CAD file (.dxf files) on difficult to find parts is a fantastic idea!
