    Joined the Mule Train

    Hi Guys, Almost 4 months ago I ran across a guy that was wanting to sell a mule. I had him send me some photos and I told him I was interested. He mentioned a price but also said he wanted to have his aircraft mechanic look at a few issues it had before he sold it. They got the old...

    Getting Bear’s Trucks Going

    Of the two trucks I got from Papabear one was a runner and is put up for now. The other had been a runner at one time although PB said it would downshift on its own for no reason. I am thinking junk is in the hydraulics of the transmission. So I wanted to focus on getting it moving so I could...

    Carburetor and Ethanol

    Okay I have been searching and can't find it. Awhile back I saw a post where someone found a new made power plunger for the Holley carbs that was resistant to Ethanol. The picture of it showed that the seal that normally is leather was a purple color. I might have been a part that also...

    M35 Fuel Pump

    I was parts picking the other day but not for the M35. The guy had a M35 fuel pump laying on a shelf among some other parts. I asked him if the pump was good. It looks almost new with some shelf wear on it. He said take it and try it and if it works then pay me. We are good friends so I...

    SC M211 Update

    Since there has not been much G749 action on the site I decided to post pictures of the starter I redid over the last 3 weeks in the shop. The starter that came on the M211 would only smoke when I tried it. I figured it was history since the metal cover was missing on the back of the starter...

    My M211 Battery Tray

    Since the weather is keeping me from working on my fuel tank I started on my battery tray project. The battery tray that mounts on the ledge in front of the cab was rusted through on the passenger side. The drivers side is not much better. I decided to try and make my own tray using the...

    My XM211 Fuel Tank

    This latest long weekend I decided to work on the XM211 a bit. So I started killing the rust on the passenger battery ledge. While my solution was doing its job I decided to drain the fuel tank. The previous owner said it was totally full of real gas. Yeah right. So I used a shaker siphon...

    Parts M211

    I found an M211 about 1.5 hours from my place. Really rough, engine frozen, missing components for the engine. Lots of rust but could be worse. The owner is playing the scrap value card. I really don't have a way to haul it and would have to hire it done. Not sure how much that would be...

    M149 Water Trailer Frame

    I ran across a M149 water tank trailer that is in good shape. I have seen worse left over trailers than this one. The guy was going to scrap it out so took a chance and brought it home. It looks like at some time it was being towed and then some bone head backed it into a jackknife and kept...

    M211's Alive!!

    I was hoping to get the M211 started before the holidays but things just did not work out. It took longer to get things done that I thought. I had to look into a bunch of stuff and I am glad I did. I started with changing the engine oil then the transmission oil. I pulled the carburetor...
