    M718A1 Project

    Thanks, Maddawg, they are unique and hard to find the elusive parts, took several years to find all the parts to put it back right. This is what it looked like when I purchased it, was told after service it was used as a runabout jeep on an AFB, where they removed all the goodies and added...

I wanted a descent paint job, so I decided to remove all the carc...

    It was just that nice, only minimal surface rust, had a hard time keeping my emotions under control when I found this one. Story was it was stored in a hanger at an AFB and used as a runabout jeep up into the 90's, then stored in a shop until I bought it several years ago. Took me a couple...

    M151 A-1 Coil

    I've seen the vent lines plugged with no ill effect, sounds like a bad coil, the shiny Chiny ones are junk from my experience.

    What is supposed to go there?

    Those are not A2 rear shackles, those are Marine rear shackles and expensive if you have to buy a set, I see you have a Marine front bumper, probably had a fording kit in it's past life. Don't worry about the wiring, a new A2 harness is available for around $125, may have to modify if you are...

    What is supposed to go there?
