    I never realized how big these things are, until you place a couple cars next to them.

    Hi Everybody,

    I'm Marc from Belgium and I bought a Larc V in Europe which we are currently bringing back to life.
    I'm looking for all the manuals so if someone can offer them please send me a pm.

    The Larc V was laying in a salvage yard and some parts where stolen off.
    Main thing we need is the injection pump from the original Cummins V8-300. Serial number from the engine is 353945 which makes it a 1963 built engine.
    I would buy a complete engine (with or without gearbox/pump) as well.

    Other things missing but not that important are e.g.:
    1 wheel
    the transmission shaft with pinion from the gearbox to the right rear wheel
    the rear hydraulic bilge pump
    the radiator and fan
    The gearbox compartment cover
    some of the bowden cables
    The engine compartment covers
    The 2 covers from the storage boxes.

    We buy lots of antique tractors and cars in the US and ship them in containers so export and transport would not be an issue.

    I hope to find some parts and friends over here on steel Soldiers.

    Welcome to Steel Soldiers Marc. You're working on my favorite size MV....big. A quick search for "Larc for sale" netted a few hits so if you don't get the same results searching from your side of the pond, I'll dig more later tonight.

    Here's a site that claims to have manuals and contains some trivia. http://buyaduck.com/lark-amphibious-vehicle/

    Only 1000 made and 550 shipped to Nam to be left behind. I've seen pictures loaded on Steel Soldiers in the past so they were out there. We'll bump the post and see if anyone else remembers where a donor larc might be sitting.

    Hi Plowboy,
    I know of some complete ones for sale but I'd like to complete mine. I would buy a complete one without the hull as well but has to be disassembled one as a complete one will not go into a container to ship it.
    I sent several messages to the Buy a Duck website but never got any answer.

    Hello,

    Bringing this thread back in the hopes that anyone knows of one still available either whole for parts, or someone parting one. I am hunting some axle hard parts for a LARC V. Thanks!
