    Genset Bonding Switch?

    A few years back, there was a Member that installed a switch on a Genset, that in one position bonded the Neutral and Ground, and in the other would separate, or un-bond the Neutral and Ground. I'm sure the reasoning was to be able to safely attach the Genset to residential service, or as a...

    Dual Voltage Alternator Install on a Deuce

    I read a few threads about this but didn't find any photos or text covering the actual installation. I procured a 12/24 Niehoff unit today and would like to know what I'm getting into. Somebody has to be a better "searcher" than me.

    1st Annual Wings and Warriors Fundraiser

    The MVCC is going to support this with a few vehicles. I'd like to see if I can get a few of my re-enactor buddies to show up with a Vietnam Era weapons display. Maybe Henderson can get out of Cheyenne for awhile to have a little fun. (The wind stopped blowing here for now).

    Strange Exhaust Arrangement 003A

    While working on a 003A genset w/ASK for a Bud of mine, I noticed this strange arrangement of 45's in the exhaust box. Any reason for this being done? I would think you'd want just the turned down 45's that came with the unit to keep water out of the engine. Any thoughts?

    Adding Brake Fluid to a M105A2

    I was looking over my 105A2 today and doing some PM work trying to get her ready for the big Air Show in 2 weeks. I greased the leaf springs, dolly wheel, and brake handles. I took a look at the air reservoir tightened all the fittings, and noticed the crumby petcock for the drain. I replaced...
