Thanks, on the mend, and yes clear fluids were involved later. But I had to stop; kept falling down and someone stepped on my thumb.
Will be back to wrenching very soon.

Just a short note to close the conversation.
I took the M-151 to the local Vo-tech close to me. We evaluated the rust and missing sections and determined that it would need to be on a rotisserie and some very heavy welding would need to be done. That is way beyond my capabilities so I put it up to be sold. A professional welder and mechanic in Maine wanted a project jeep to work on with his kids. I flat towed it 2 hours north into snow country and turned it over to the new owner. Within weeks he had repaired to main "Frame" and was working on the floors. He has a 60' by 100' shop at home and a larger work garage. I know it will be in good hands and on the road this summer. We are both very happy with the ending of this tale.
I have decided to focus on M416 trailers in the future.
