Re: M151 Rally Possibilities??

That was part of a four vehicle accident. From what I understand one drivers foot slipped off the brake onto the gas and then he pushed even harder thinking he was pushing the brake. Something you have to consider with these ralleys and convoys is not only the vehicles but also the drivers. You have...

Re: M151 Rally Possibilities??

Remember that the cross country MVPA convoy is going on right now and a lot of guys save up for years to go on that so any of them may well be broke after this year. I know they just had an accident the beginning of the week that took out three or four vehicles. I will do what I can to help promote ...

Beware of rebates!

I bought some ammo with a rebate attached a while ago and you cannot do anything until after the ammo gets to you and then you have to jump through all kinds of hoops by taking pictures of the ammo boxes and the UPC codes and filling out several forms and then you wait,..............and wait...........

Mount in bed with a battery, quicker, easier and a lot less complicated! You can also get ones with booms.

Re: Rear Differential Swap and Drive Shaft

You can do the same with the front on an A1 or A2 as long as you are driving. And as far as fast, those rears have 4.88 gears so the shafts are screaming.

And the welded on chain link for security, from what I hear Alaska is not exactly the most secure state in the country even though EVERYBODY carries! I would rather have the vehicle parked next to it.

Re: Found on CL - (Not Mine) 2019

So technically no title. Unless someone has title in hand I consider it a no title vehicle, especially as hard as it is getting to get titles for military vehicles nowadays. Doesn't he realize that if he has a title he automatically adds several hundred dollars value to the vehicle? If it is so easy...

Re: Holley Carburetor

Then it sounds like it is running rich. When was the last time you serviced the air cleaner? and the float level will have an effect on that but other than that, idle mixture and main jet settings, Considering you will not find any other main jets what altitude are you at? Above 8,000 feet will also...

Re: Holley Carburetor

That could also be an indication of plugs that are too cold. What plugs are you running? One of the biggest problems with older antique engines and especially when trying to read the plugs is that these engines are babied now, nobody runs them hard and to their full rpm and load capacities. So the p...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

I was actually going to make reference to that! Now I know why your son doesn't want to ride with you. Sort of like when I had my 1980 Ford pickup. My daughter hated riding in that truck. It did not have two panels that matched and it looked like it was a farm truck it's entire life. May have been, ...

Re: A-2 Fuel Pumps Question

I like Mike, He lives not far from me but keep in mind that the NOS pumps are at least 50 years old and have internals that are not only old and dried out but also not compatible with ethanol.
