Your efforts are very appreciated sir! Will my m109a3 be listed eith the dueces?
Thank you very much in advance.

No, it should be listed under the M109A3. If I didn't pass that file over, then it must not have been pulled or it must have been accidentally deleted from my hard drive.

The file for the M109A3s is attached in post 63.

Unless it's a rebuilt A1 frame then on the passenger side. Check one of the old VIN INFO threads, it was better stated and there were photos.

M55 and M62 (can only attach 10 files at a time)
What does the REGNO represent in the M51 PDF? I see the SN is the Identification Number correct?

I think I have a IH M51 turned M51A2, closest serial i can find is 2 digits off in the M51 PDF.

Yes you are correct your truck started life with 6602 gas power in 1952. REGNO is registration number, that is the number that was painted on the hood, yours should be 5161327 i think.

That is amazing news, how did you derive the 5161327 hood number out of curiosity? Still re-reading the PDF's to see if I can find the actual SN. Any way to find out what unit it has been assigned to?

When your serial number is missing, find the closest listing and add the difference in serial numbers to the registration number for the listing you found. Sorry very few unit listings are available. Check your bumpers for numbers and letters and post pictures, usually someone here can decode them.

Ok, edit... simple Google search returned "Registration Number"... so I'm an idiot....

Question pertaining to truck markings... if the truck were say a USMC instead of Army or other branch, how would the REGNO work into the scheme of things?

Forgive me, I was arty, not motor T. If it isnt pull string go boom, I'm lost...

Good question. Each branch of service has it's own registration number system. USMC seems to always be 6 numbers.

Does anything exist for a NAVY CV10516 in all this glorious data? I suspect I need to use the FOIA?

I was wondering if you could help me out. I have an 85 M1008 that I am trying to find a little history on. The bumper numbers are illedgable as they’ve been painted over a couple of times. I’ve tried to remove what I could but I think I went to far with sanding. I would like to return the original markings to the bumpers amd tail gate if I could but it would be nice to know where it has been stationed. I do know it was decommissioned from the EPG and was unit 118 but where it was before that is a mystery.
