Re: vin

Looking at the geometry of those blades and assuming that pic one faces out and pic two is against the water pump the that is a reverse rotation fan. Correct direction for airflow but runs counterclockwise. It would normally be seen on a serpentine belt setup.

Re: THANK A VETERAN

Raymond, You are absolutely right but just like every other holiday the true meaning has been forgotten and the holiday has been commercialized and monetized. Maybe not in that exact order.

Re: A2 Fuel Pump Core

You are still in the 10 post probation period, one more post and you will be in the normal swing of things. I don't like to do it that way but it is about the only way to control the spammers.

Re: Found on CL - (Not Mine) 2019

You told me you scrapped the engine and I am sure I can find the post where you told me that, but I don't care either. This whole conversation is just going in circles so why don't we just call it a draw and move on?

Re: So who has a 80's Mutt ?

I was actually going to straighten that body out just to prove it could be done. Unibody construction is actually fairly easy to straighten since it is all connected. When I jacked up on those rear fenders so I could put tires on it to roll it around they came right up and the entire rear wheel well...

Re: CMD Body Panels

The jigs both locate the part and also work as heat sinks to keep from blowing through when welding. I am pretty sure the parts are welded by human hand. I am answering all of these questions based on my own experience and the few conversations I have had with Guy in the past, It might be better if ...

Not attacking you. Just pointing out what we have seen. You have not seen me in attack mode and never will on this forum. Like I said, you bought the vehicle and it is yours to do what you want with it. The hobby is doing as well as any other antique vehicle hobby. They all go up and down like rolle...

Re: CMD Body Panels

Acudanut, Are you talking about those aluminum forms he showed a while ago? Those are jigs that are used for production welding of the lower corners onto the fenders. Thy are not to be welded to the body. You can weld the corners without those jigs. They use them due to the amount of work that is ne...

Re: THANK A VETERAN

I was just sitting here thinking, yea I know, don't happen much anymore. When I went to Vietnam my dad had been back from WWII for 26 years. So one generation of kids were born after that big war. I have been home from Vietnam for 47 years and I was one of the later ones, two full generations! I was...

Re: Found on CL - (Not Mine) 2019

A Titan is not really part of the military vehicle "Hobby" per say, It is an after market body with m 151 parts on it, A wannabe if you want. And a lot of purists look at it that way so you cannot go by what a Titan sells for. You also cannot go by what one vehicle sells for, you have to look at the...

Re: So who has a 80's Mutt ?

I know of one, what do you need to know? It is the same as all the other A2's. It came out of the same large group as this one.

Re: Good deal on random gun stuff

Did you ever shoot with a laser? Looks good on TV, in real life they are not anywhere near as practical as they look. Much more practical on a rifle.
