    WANTED : M-1950 Gasoline burner stove

    Hopefully I am not rambling on needlessly. It is interesting to note that similar stoves were in use by germany before world war 2 circa 1939. It is interesting to not how closely the US military stove resembled the German army stoves. although the german stove seems to be a much more...

    WANTED : M-1950 Gasoline burner stove

    afterthought--you wanted to know the differences--I think the original wwII stoves had spare parts/tools and 3 or 4 legs typically. some can with aluminum cases(cylindrical) and some did not. the tanks could be painted brass or steel painted. several manufacturers. while based on a coleman...

    WANTED : M-1950 Gasoline burner stove

    I finally dug thru my barn and found the stoves. several are from the forties. however I do have some from later years made by coleman. they had a brand after the war called the "gi stove". somewhat similar in general configuration but with more modern components. sadly not a military issue...

    WANTED : M-1950 Gasoline burner stove

    I have a number of similar ones but from the 1940's and fifties. probably not what you want as it is a generation earlier.

    What's this?

    the bottle for the windshield washer fluid was mounted to the driver side drop down engine bay panel. a white plastic bottle. it had a rubber siphon tube that came through the firewall. usually through one of the same holes for the steering wheel shaft or similar near it. not sure how...

    M146 6-ton trailer

    Mine is completely the light green inside with bare floors. a lot of these were heavily modified inside for the end use of the unit(s) they served.

    WY/CO Chapter

    so...what about the VFD's, the colleges, the forest service, the police and other government agencies both state and federal that continue to operate these vehicles on road. how do we come to a place where the government can declare " do as I say not as I do". what happened to a government...

    Identify these parts on an LDT 465-1D

    the five tons from the sixties had the air intake mounted on right front fender top. so having the elbow face that direction is probably why. if you can get a better picture of the data tag on the block it might confirm that it is actually an LDT or an LDS. I seem to recall the 5 tons had an...

    Replacing Rear Wheel Bearings and all pertaining to

    this is a great time for you. most people rarely venture beyond what they have already known or done. Just take a picture before teardown, during and after. almost all of the parts will be very heavy so plan, prepare and leave time to walk away if you get frustrated. its going to be messy...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Did you try undoing the front engine block mounts a little? if you can raise the front of the engine just an inch it may be enough. not too hard if you can get a good lift on the engine without mucking up the oil pan. by the way, great job moving radiator out of the way without disconnecting...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Hgun--interesting---as the "parking brake" is actually on the transfer case not the drive wheels. that wheel may not be the problem. next time check the drum brake on the back of the transfer case for heat and smoke. if it is always hard to apply the parking brake it is likely the pads are...
