    All Military Vehicles banned from road in Maryland

    You make some very valid and concerning points. The Aberdeen show will probably continue for now, as you stated that there is actually no legislation (yet) that may restrict current registered vehicles, but in time our rights to operate these vehicles on the road may be challenged. There are...

    All Military Vehicles banned from road in Maryland

    I have several 2 1/2 Ton and 5 Ton vehicles tagged "Historic" which I use in compliance with MD law.;M35, M816, M818 and 817. I use them for shows, parades, outreach programs for ministry and for pleasure. The concern that I have after reading all of this is; are we subject to not having...

    Maryland State Inspection- HMMWV registered as an AM General Pickup

    If you register your MV in Maryland as Historic, you are not required to have a MD State inspection. With historic tags you are limited to driving your vehicle to shows, your mechanic, limited pleasure drives, parades and other similar events. If you use it as a daily driver or use it as you...

    Need to replace diodes on armature of mep002a

    It is best to use a heat sink between the electrical component and the termination where the solder connection will be made.

    Engine block madness!

    I don't recommend using a block with a crack in any location; with expansion and contraction the crack could migrate. I'd see if you can find a good rebuildable engine or block, you'll be glad you did in the long run. Good Luck

    I've been going to the Aberdeen show since about 85 and have only missed it a few times. It is not the same show as it was on the Aberdeen Proving Grounds but it is still a great place to see some great vehicles, pick up some good parts at the flea market and hang out with friends. Your son...

GL was famous for fork-lifting their CUCV's and bending the drive shafts; the only way to fix them was to buy new or repair. When I replace my u-joints...
