    CA Hagerty Alternatives?

    My 5-ton is on my regular Safco auto policy, with two other trucks. No restrictions other than not a daily driver, and it runs about $50/month for PD/PL coverage. within the policy. DG

    M35a2 air filter element: commercial part #?

    Duece and 5-ton air filters are very different. No swap there. If I had a duece I'd be tempted to modify it by putting a 5-ton filter on the fender. They last a loooong time, and are washable. DG

    What was...? (Answered: M530 GOER)

    The large, articulated 4X4 (US) from the 50's? Seemed to be a sort of a giant pickup truck. DG

    Just spitballing...winching out your own deuce while alone.

    A reverse pull is simple. Take your shovel off the pioneer tool rack, and start digging. Under the truck, from front to rear to run the cable. Been there, done that. In gloppy mud, BTW. A sideways pull is tricky without a level-wind attachment. Some 5-tons have them, never seen one on a...

    Just spitballing...winching out your own deuce while alone.

    The stock winch is strong enough to suck the truck up into a tree. Learn how to operate it right and you'll have no danger. Get yourself a good 20K chain with 2 hooks, a snatch block, and leather gloves. US made only! You may have to slog thru 3 foot mud to hook it to something stout enough...

    2 1/2 ton windshield frame to m37

    M35-type glass frames will fit the M37 no problem. I have seen some from M35's that had the wiper holes offset to the side a bit, but that is no biggie. DG

    M211 Radar unit truck, interior photos anyone?

    Possible but unlikely. The military didn't 'marry' a lot of used stuff onto trucks except at the unit level. In your case, that load would seriously limit the vehicle off-road due to placement. I'd wager it was done by a previous civilian owner. Plus, you're looking at a truck and system...

    M211 Radar unit truck, interior photos anyone?

    Your box was a very special, almost custom, shelter designed just for a particular radar project. As shown in the photos, it was quite a complex group of several items to move into a combat area and set up. Your shelter most likely came from a decomissioned radar system. Radar companies like...

    WTB...10" (wheel size) tires

    Those as used on USAF airway ground trailers. I need at least one, and some 10" tubes/flaps if there are any out there. 9" ones would work, too, as I have wheels. Text me please if you can help 6027100803 Dennis Thanks!

    M211 Radar unit truck, interior photos anyone?

    From the photos, I'd say it was originally a trailer mounted specialty shelter. Dennis

    Engine Stop Knob Missing?

    Any tee-handle Bowden cable will work, just paint it OD. Just make sure it is long enough. Napa, Amazon, eBay, eTc. DG

    3 Jake heads under a stock M809 hood!!!

    I mentioned the hood clearance as there was an 800- series in a local guard unit with a little box welded to the hood to allow fit. Cheesy looking... DG
