That information was all posted by Sherwan from Pakistan, He has not been on the forum for almost two years. He has a Facebook page but I do not know his username there, I don't do Facebook. You can try Sherwan, that was his username here.

Hello George....

I have a friend in South Africa who is restoring his M151A1 engine. So far, he has managed to find most of the parts needed for the rebuild. But he cannot find where to buy the valve stem seals. Can you tell me where you purchased your stem seals, please? He says that Truck Parts Trading do not seem to have these.

Kind regards as always.....
Ken
Kind regards....

Always wanted - Details and pictures of M416 Trailer data plates & M151 data plates & body-tags for my research. Thanks!
