    Gonna need some parts

    Yes, he was lucky. I got more torn up by broken glass in dragging him out and helping with the vehicle recovery than he did in the crash. He was not wearing a seat belt and that might have saved him, as it seems he was thrown to the passenger side when the driver's side rolled over. Much more...

    Gonna need some parts

    My old Deuce, which I sold to a friend, got into a spot of bother today. He was driving it down his road (he lives in the hilly country) - very steep, sharp corners - and it got away from him. I am pretty sure that the truck is mechanically ok except for a battery with a burnt terminal (from...

    Whistler turbo on a Chevy motor

    Yeah, I was thinking about it because I have one and, well, whistler. Would not be after any serious power boost.

    M416 (original) wheels - tubeless tire ok?

    I am going to replace the original NDT tires on my '64 M416. I plan to use take-off BFG All-Terrain 285/75r16 tires from my truck. Can I run these tubeless on the stock, original military wheels? If not, will radial inner tubes listed as going up to 235/60r16 be OK? (They are available on...

    Whistler turbo on a Chevy motor

    Yes, the question was prompted by the sudden proliferation of outrageously turbocharged gasoline engines/cars that seem to have appeared overnight. In terms of airflow, a SBC is maybe half the cubes of a multi but the rpms are double. So, maybe the size is within reason? For sure there would be...

    Has anyone ever mounted a whistler turbo on a small-block Chevy? (No, I have not been drinking.)

    Good Sam was a bust as they said that 'a military vehicle was designed for commercial purposes'. Wow.

    Driving my Deuce from NY to TX in July

    Some updates on this never ending journey: - Flywheel was able to be cut and is now as smooth as a gigolo's pick-up line. - Dave is not going to be able to get onto the reassembly until next week at best. Forecasting two weeks from tomorrow as a safe bet. - I have a bunch of decent...

    Driving my Deuce from NY to TX in July

    It is heartening to see that you have regained your outpatient status. EDIT: The above was in response to someone's rather negative post that seems to have been deleted.

    Driving my Deuce from NY to TX in July

    Here's an update. My Haggerty road side assistance plan provided 150 miles of Towing and my friends shop was 147 miles away. Even a blind hog gets a few acorns. A 25-ton wrecker brought the deuce to my friend Dave's shop where we dropped the transmission. The pressure plate was perfect the side...

    Driving my Deuce from NY to TX in July

    This is a condensed update as time is still tight. I had the truck towed to my friend Dave's shop which was about a hundred and fifty miles away from where I was stranded. Today we pulled the transmission out and found that the pressure plate did not look bad the disc was totally messed up and...

    Driving my Deuce from NY to TX in July

    Well, that didn't last long. Despite taking it easy the clutch lost all of its adjustment in a hundred or so miles of smooth highway driving. I am not sure if I should attempt to adjust it again. There seems to be something that is causing the clutch to lose its adjustment right away and I am...
