    Home Depot 383 tan too peachy/pinky. Alternative code?

    You could always have HD color match your canvas and then paint with that. The hard part is getting a small enough sample of the canvas or having them hold the door on their computer.

    How not to install a Duramax in a M998

    Just wondering if you could split the difference between 3" and 2" and go like 2.5". The extra half an inch might help with getting in and out. I'm just wondering is all.

    M37 to modern MV brake lights

    It should be plug and play for the most part. You will have at least two wires that will have to go from one side to the other but it's just follow the numbers (if they are still there). Left Taillight should be Service Stop, Service Tail, Blackout Tail Light Wire # 21 - Service Tail Wire #...

    Rear axle change.

    As for the original question. All I can say is look around for a civilian Dodge Power wagon of the same era and you might find an axle or at least the pumpkin with the lower gear ratios that you are looking for. You might be able to swap the axle that way...but it's not going to an easy find...

    M718A1 Project

    When you get to the data plate stage don't forget you have a M718A1 and not an M718. A1 where built on the m151A2 body and 718s where built on the M151A1 body. Confusing isn't it?

    102 inch whip antenna

    It will not hurt to run a grounding wire from the antenna base to the frame of the vehicles. MV bodies are known to have poor grounding so adding an extra ground in will not hurt the radio or the electrical system of the vehicle and may even improve your lighting system.

    Gas gauge and sending unit replaced, still no accurate fuel level

    Check the TM and see if it says anything on trouble shooting the fuel system. It may give you what you need to get it closer to accurate.

    Were the M151s and the M151A1s in anyway better than the M151A2s?

    I have owned both M151A1a and M151a2s. The A2 rear suspension gave the driver more body roll and therefor helped the driver "feel" if they started to over steer. Personally I enjoyed the ride of the A1 over the A2 as the ride to me was smother than the A2. The A2 had a "jeep" feel to it where...

    Anyone know of a Complete or non cut M-151A2 just sitting ?

    Pictures or it doesn't exists! I mean common if you've rebuilt a M151A2 you need to post some pics of it. Unless you did and I've just missed it.

    Camo paint

    Merc or nato it's the same technique. And as my grandma use to say about mistakes, "nobody is going to see it on a galloping horse!"

    Paint color advise for HMMWV

    Just do a google search for HMMWV and click on images. You'll get tons of pictures, then you'll see just forest green, 3 color Nato camo, desert sand, but there are also some flat black, gloss black, flat light gray, flat dark gray, I saw one in fire engine red and a couple in graphic wraps. I...

    Camo paint

    I've always free handed it. I know the instruction manual for the 4 color MERC patterns said to use a chalk pencil or soap to lay out the pattern, but I have always felt that that would lead to a messy job (at lease for me) so I just free handed it and they have come out good IMHO. If you are...

    M718A1 Project

    Nice work so far! Wow, did you have to do any work to the body or was it just that nice? That is one of the nicest bodies I've seen. Keep up the good work and keep us posted.

    M151 A-1 Coil

    I have to agree it sounds like your coil went south. Try to get a a good G.I. US. made coil and replace and enjoy your ride.

    Auto to Manual trans.

    Lots would be involved, but not impossible. You would need the transmission, clutch, flywheel, bell housing, throw out bearing, clutch linkage, peddle, and all that goes with it. The shift lever. You would need to see what is needed to adapt the manual trans to the 203 transfer case (sorry I...

    Need some help on identifying some marks on M886

    The BNX? is to vague to know for sure what that marking is. Usually vehicles would be marked with higher headquarters followed by operation headquarter and then the unit marking (example: 82AB 44M HHC which means 82nd Airborn 44th Medical Brigade Headquarters Headquarters Company.) BN is...
