Re: Early Bow Brace Rod

THAT is why I have a set of originals, they are off of mine when I converted it to the later style and never looked back (or to the side to see if it was coming loose)! I will keep them and sell them with the vehicle so the new owner will have the original equipment but I will give him the fair warn...

With all the hormones flowing in that kid right now from that young lady you should have had him carry the GTB back into it's spot!

Re: Early Bow Brace Rod

I can't even come close to that kind of detail! I don't know if you have ever used those types of rods but if you have not and you are planning on it be aware that they had this lovely habit of unlatching and smacking you in the side of the head, top and all. :roll:

Re: Early Bow Brace Rod

I have a complete set and I am pretty sure I know where they are at for once but I am so tied up for the next two days that I can't even think about getting to them until Sunday at the earliest. And by then i will have forgotten all about it so if you have not gotten what you need by then be sure to...

Re: M151A2 CAV at Dover Air Force Base Air Show & Open House

Somebody correct me if I am wrong or is this military genius at work here. The bullet deflector in front of the radiator seems to be positioned perfectly to deflect the bullets right up to the BACK side of the deflector above the front of the hood. In effect spraying the lead fragments in the occupa...

Re: M151A2 FAV at Dover Air Force Base Air Show & Open House

Thanks for your insight. This one was definitely used and abused considering not only does it look rough, but the motor is pretty tired as well. The cage does not go through the cowl, but it does seem pretty sturdy. I had noticed that most FAVs I had seen pictures of had a different cage as well as...

Re: M151A2 FAV at Dover Air Force Base Air Show & Open House

While that FAV is definitely used and abused there are a few things that catch my eye that don't jive with 90% of all the others I have seen. First and foremost is the fully bent and welded cage, the originals I have seen were made with plumbing pipe. Second is how the cage is mounted, most were mou...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

AND, That extra space behind the front seat will also allow you to move the front seat bock to accommodate the bane of all older men, lack of flexibility!!!! I have a hell of a time with the clutch and brake on my M37 because you need to splay you leg out to the left to clear the steering wheel. I K...

Re: Turn Signal Q's

I am pretty sure my lights flashed without the signal bulb in place, I was testing a bunch of switches at one time and that was where I found out that the grounding to the column was ONLY to make that one bulb work on the switch. I had them just hanging from the harness and everything was working an...

Re: Turn Signal Q's

I have never even seen one of them! What is that from? The old ones I have seen had the bulb at the end of the stalk. I am sure mine all have raised bulbs at that point. And a pull out piece for the four ways in the front.

Re: 91 octane ethanol free gas question

Most likely not but to your wallet yes! You don't need to run premium gas in a 151, if you can get the non alcohol in regular go with that and you will actually gain just a hair more power.
