Crappy Cell pics. Tony, I know you are unloading it. There is a sheetmetal cover where the light switch once was. The top is a push pull switch. Pull out to turn on power and the bottom one is the push button for the starter. No BRAKES and it has no cooling system. Running it a few minutes or so is no problem and I've driven it across the yard many times. Call me if you have ????

That sucker will start, I assure you! Post pics. Quite a rig that guy has. Price is good. If the battery is low, you can jump it with anything, it's 12V.

Kenny, either the battery needs a charge or there was a loose connection to it. They had pretty bad weather this morning so they just pulled it into the yard with the towbar. I have pics from the delivery if I could ever open my email.:rolleyes:

I liked those guys rig set up 16 ton winch on the trailor nice.
Yep and for $1.22 a mile.:) Kenny, I am 98.5% sure it is a connection, but it doesn't matter. The engine will be coming out in Sept for an origional 24V gasser MV engine (no multi's). The new sheetmetal will be picked up in June:mrgreen:.

FWIW, the gasser you got from Gimpy was one of mine out of the blue M59. Lots of blue parts in the bed of ole yeller! The engine in the truck could most likely be reworked to military standards. At least it can be heard running.
