Re: Weird project 151

Engine runs?
Well knock it off the jack stands, use a hammer to get the trans into 1st gear and let 'er rip. Put Rick in the passenger seat, he can just swing his legs over the side if you need to slow down!

Re: The Submarine Jeep

Thanks for the help Rick. I was going to check for a leak today, but got busy. I won't be back at the shop for a few weeks. Good luck on the surgery!

@TJ I'm not one for liking trailers. Had a WWII Jeep trailer and I spent more time dumping the rainwater out rather than actually using it.

Re: The Submarine Jeep

*Applause* Still think you're a bit nuts but the diligence and interest you've applied to this project is admirable. Stick with it and take it the rest of the way. Thanks TJ! On the final stretch of this build, I thought of this post often. Those two sentences perfectly summed up this ordeal. Altho...

Re: The Submarine Jeep

I personally have ruined a few alternator by simply splashing through the mud, merely 2ft deep or so. Just about every one I know has replaced theirs and also keep spares. On the plus side, I believe I have the charging system nailed down to a science (and paid for) with my alternator and reducer. T...

Re: The Submarine Jeep

The alternator linked above is weather-proof, but not waterproof. Today we had a major breakthrough. I picked up my rebuilt starter and alternator from the little Amish shop in town. He does amazing work, and super cheap. We had the alternator on a test stand to mess with the field wire. The positiv...

Re: The Submarine Jeep

I messaged the alternator people to see if they are waterproof.
Rick, I've been known to arrive at a show with drying paint!

Re: The Submarine Jeep

Thank you, thank you very much!
The Jeep has to be 100% assembled and rolling a week from today. All that will be left is wiring and driveshafts.

Re: The Submarine Jeep

Ok guys I'm at a dilemma in the build and have a question about the charging system. The only 24V part on this Jeep is the coil and 60 amp alternator. This is because I can't find a single waterproof 12V alternator. It seems to be impossible. Only the military is crazy enough to build this stuff, an...

Re: $2,600 M151A1 FS

Thank you all for the information. As I mentioned this Mutt is in Texas, and I live in Indiana. I haven't ever seen this in person and posted the ad on information given to me by the previous owner. Your eyes and attention to detail are far better than mine, especially through the crappy pics (I've ...

Re: $2,600 early M151 FS

A couple guys on Facebook thought this was an early M151 with an A1 dataplate put on. I haven't ever seen the Jeep nor have much Mutt knowledge, so I can't confirm anything.

$2,600 M151A1 SOLD

SOLD For sale is an uncut M151A1 Mutt. Overall pretty complete vehicle with a great candidate for restoration. I purchased this vehicle because someone converted it to 12V and I needed the starter for another project (long story). The standard 24V parts are available everywhere. Drivetrain: Engine t...
