Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
Look back at what you had at the beginning of this thread. Your Mighty Mite has gone from a sows ear to a silk purse!The latest update from Doc:
This has been a VERY HOT HUMID summer with A LOT of rain, which makes any progress on the Mite exponentially harder. The average temperature is 95, and the heat index hovers around 110. Doc spent hours fighting with the master cylinder. He bled the brakes out 8 times. The MC still kept intermittently losing pressure. I suggested he pull it and ship it back to Bensinger. He's waiting for it to get rebuilt. Again.
Doc still has to rebuild and install the NOS HMMWV seat belts I bought for him. Brand new never opened lap belts. Broken return springs.
Fortunately, he has the parts to fix it but the repair required gutting the tensioner. Ugh. Seems like no repair to this vehicle goes unpunished (to paraphrase a common Murphy's Law principle).
The good news? The engine starts FAST, even when cold! He has the carburetor functioning flawlessly.
