    Aussie,
    Congratulations, troop! That's a good looking trophy to properly honor your veteran show-car. (APPLAUSE!)

    Just curious, is the bearing on that trophy free to spin? Looks like a great desktop ornament to spin when you're fidgety.

    Carry on!

    Thanks for putting the video together, Aussie Bloke. Congratulations. That tool truck looks handy and some other nicely done MV's.

    Would you mind taking a few pictures of your front bumper and winch setup? I'm about to alter mine and am looking for some ideas. Yours seems to be higher than the bottom of the frame (I don't have a WW model to look at). Is your frame extension angled up?

    Finding an A3 hydraulic winch may be difficult for me, so I need to make the frame extensions that can readily take a winch...which may be aftermarket. I may change to an 809 hood that would extend out a bit over a winch...so looking for ideas. Thanks!

    Edit...Aussie, I found a good video that had details I asked (above) for pictures of. I'd love to see your pictures but I googled it and came up with the info...they are quite a fabrication. I was surprised the frame went on the inside, rather than outside.

    With the help of Floridianson, I pulled off the hydraulic lines & HH head to find that the spring & keeper were broken. The button was a bit beatup too from whatever happened. Now I need to find replacements for these items to get the truck back on the road. While all the parts were removed, the FDC was also bypassed to eliminate that issue down the road. Does anybody have any NOS replacement parts for these items? This is the M-35a2c that I got from GP last December (2017).

    Alan, you might get lucky at a well stocked local hardware for the spring and retainer.

    Congrats Aussie!! My air governor would do that from time to time too, a simple disassembly/cleaning/lubing did the trick. If you disassemble it , there is a Allen set screw hidden under a expansion plug that you have to loosen first. The large jam nut is the pressure adjustment I believe so just be mindful of where it is set.

    I got new replacement clip, button and bow tie washer (check it for cracks) directly from ambac, iirc there is a number on your existing button that tells you what it is so you can get a identical replacement, I either found the part numbers here on the site or a member provided then to me.

    Sure next time I get it out of storage I'll take detailed Video of it for you even though you seem to have what you need information wise.

    Not a problem mate.
