Looking for power cable cover M151a1

Post by Bart1015 » January 7th, 2016, 6:45 pm

Hello guys,

Well, I can't seem to figure out exactly what its called....

I am looking for the cover that goes from the battery box area to the driver rear fender. Its used to cover/protect the power cables for a radio mounted on the drivers rear fender. If anyone has one for sale please let me know. If anyone has a photograph of one, please post it so I can try to make one if there are none around.


Thank you, I am still amazed at how helpful people are in this hobby.

Have a 39 inch piece of channel wit a 2 inch pocket and. 4 inches wide.
Its military surplus and should be ideal.

The piece you are needing is called "guard assembly" and has a part number of SC-D-75288 and is used when the radio on the M151 is mounted on the driver side. In the TM 11-2300-476-14 & P the instructions for mounting are on page 2-34 and a picture of it is on 2-35 I have this piece with the part # on it if your still in need of it.

Thank you Baderorod,

I ended up locating one a while ago. I am sorry I forgot to update my post.

I ended up buying it from Eastern Surplus. The one I received was truly NOS and it arrived perfect. But, I was shocked at the cost to ship a $5.00 part. I will not provide details but it was quite bit more than what I thought would be fair. With that said, I was happy with the end result and it fulfilled my need at the time.

A few months later, I was at Tower Park and they were for sale everywhere.
