I have seen that tool before, it is not for a 1911 since they are self tooled. I do not remember where it was I saw it nor if it was even weapons related.

Re: Dropping cylinders?

It sounds like you have a vacuum leak but how are you checking compression while it is running? Compression is cylinder pressure measured dry and wet but can't be measured running. Have you checked around the intake manifold ports for a vacuum leak? very common on these engines.

Fil doesn't come here anymore, He had a lot of issues with the log in and did not want to deal with it. He is mostly on the facebook page that I don't go to much at all.

Re: Water Pump Rebuild

They are a 60's Ford 170 6 cylinder pump but you have to pay attention to the outlet and make sure you get a straight outlet. Some have an angle built in to the outlet and that will make it very hard to get the lower hose to fit. I have found that when getting a rebuilt pump you will sometimes actua...

Re: Lifting Points

I know the feeling very well! Last month I had to pull, repair and replace the transmission in my Dodge dually pickup. On the ground, outside since it will not fit in my garage. and no concrete or pavement, just dirt!! I forgot just how heavy that transmission is. It took a week and a half to do tha...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

And there is the relocker I was talking about. It appears that a lot of that mechanism has been ripped out through the hole cut in the front where the dial was.

Re: Lifting Points

Front to back rail where it meets the crossmember in the front and rear. The pads on the lift should be wide enough to spread the load across both side and cross a bit but if you think it is too small (the pad) just add piece of a 2x6 board between the pads and the frame.

Re: Fort Hood-HMRV Rally 09-11 Oct 2020

Most likely because that is what is available to purchase nowadays. I have a few pairs of tan boots and I am just a bit "Older". Any original clothing I had from 1971 is long gone not like it would fit me anymore anyway. Plus, think about this, the 80's and 90's were 30-40 years ago and that gentlem...

This is just an addendum, the original post is stickied up top. There is really nothing much to do to set pinion depth in these, there is one shim and I haven't seen any other options for changing that.

Re: GUIDE TO OVERHAULING THE M151 SERIES DIFFERENTIAL

In Armybucks thread he shows a rebuild but does not disassemble the carrier so I wanted to show a few pics of the entire unit disassembled. This has got to be one of the simplest differentials I have ever worked on. Lets see how many of you see the problem with this diff. IMG_20201023_142840834.jpg ...
