    tree vs. cucv m1008

    You've admitted to being emotionally attached, and politely I'd say that was your first mistake. You're using this as a truck, a spare vehicle in the yard, and as a learner for young drivers. It is doing exactly what you need. The whole CUCV family was intended to be repaired with off-the...

    Cadillac Gage V100 and V150 transfer case

    Coming to the conversation late, but where in the sequence of production would this kind of eccentricity be introduced? The only place I can think is when the centre hole was bored.

    Possible source for dual use M151 parts

    I am only passing along likely correct information, which due to snow accumulation, cold and "stuff" in the way cannot be immediately verified. We just had a foot of new snow yesterday, and the snow shelter is further from the doors and driveway and therefore a lower shovelling priority. But...

    Possible source for dual use M151 parts

    From another forum, its has been claimed that the M151 family engines were made by White as Hercules G1600 series. Furthermore, Caterpillar put a private label on their version, calling it at CTCAT 1404. It was installed in their forklifts and towmotors. The difference apparently is the head...

    Gun truck build questions

    How's it going? Sounds like a three-way balancing act in the making. Gun Truck, M901A1 and a new house.

    Source found for Commando chevron tires

    Tires FWIW, this is the quote from a 1967 factory brochure. The chevrons are very similar to a farm tractor tires'. In fact a brand known as Mohawk Chiefs is a recognized substitute for the now-51 year old originals.

    Interior paint colour for V100?

    Now, not to doubt anyone, but is there a period reference document for this? Statistically, this group may seem significant, but there were high hundreds of V100s delivered. (As one commentator messaged me, a lot of contemporary photographs were brightened by flashes or sunbleached.)
