Re: Looking for lifting hub centers for a M151

Those unthreaded wheel spindles could be rarities. The first batches of straight M151 models came with unthreaded spindles and push-fit hub caps.

Re: heater hoses connection to engine

This question came up at the War and Peace show in 2016. I posted this on the G503 Board in 2017 after taking advice from Big George. It certainly cured my lukewarm heater. Ken :D Dear G-503ers, As winter approaches, it's time to start thinking about one or two checks on that hot-water heater in you...

Re: US Air Force M817A1

I know for a fact that the USAF used the M718....I supplied a captain at Mildenhall AFB with a TM-20 and -20P plus a Zenith carb for the M718 they had been hiding in one of the storage facilities.
