Re: large purchase of parts

Get on loose rock and ruts and you will find the weakness real fast. Or mud.

Re: large purchase of parts

Three shafts and three bolts. I will tell you right now that they will not be cheap.

large purchase of parts

I just made a large purchase of parts. I will be selling most of it and keeping some of it. I can't really put the list of stuff on here since the list is like 12 pages long. The shipment is going to weigh 7-8,000 lbs. if that gives you any idea of size. With this shipment I am also getting the plan...

Re: engine

No podía recordar qué vehículo o sistema tenías, así que seguí lo que estabas diciendo, pero ahora lo recuerdo. ¿Tienes el A1 con el arnés A2, correcto? Si ese es el caso, entonces sí, esto será mucho mejor en cuanto a simplificar el cableado. I tried to do all of that from memory and I got most of ...

Re: electric

The DA PAM-75 is something that has been on here before and I really need to get it in the manuals section but it never hurts to put it back again. Thanks George.

Re: engine

Using the A2 pulleys on the A1 25 amp generator will work but it spins the generator a little slower so it is not going to charge at idle. Once you are driving down the road it will be charging but slow engine speeds could be an issue.

Re: engine

Just so you know the belts are different for the A1 pulleys. You could use the A2 pulleys but you might have issues with it not charging at idle since the generator will be turning slower.

Re: engine

As Horst said, it is all on the data plate on the side of the engine. The valves being a little loose is better than too tight and will get you up and running. I think the main issue was probably rust in the cylinders and will get better over time as the rings seat back in. Be sure to change the oil...

Re: 81MM Mortar

I like the neatly stowed tag ends on the straps. That is kind of overkill but that is a lot bettor than not enough. And the argument for crossed or straight is like which oil to use. I use straight mainly because if one lets go on crossed the other one will pull the load off to that side. In your ca...

Re: 81MM Mortar

Not very well versed on trailer tie down is he? Tied to those thin uprights on a landscape trailer and to the bumper and not the axle is just asking for trouble. And the looped "safety chain" with the twisted links and what looks like a J hook hanging on the front of the trailer............. My trai...

Re: CMD Body Panels

I am curious to know if it is just that one bracket that is splayed out like that or maybe they all are. I am thinking they may have done that on purpose to allow for bent or misaligned seat frames to still fit in there. Remember, these are not show vehicles. Well, they weren't then anyway. Nothing ...

I thought those rounds don't arm until they fly a certain distance just for that reason?

Re: NOS 24v Coil (1970 date)

That thing is older than you!!!!!!!! That is a neat find. I am actually kind of surprised to see the 1970 date on it, I thought the stopped using the separate resistor coils long before that.

Re: engine

.015 inch or .38 mm., The setting is supposed to be done hot and running according to the manual but I do mine hot and not running because it hurts my arthritic hands anymore. It works out just fine this way. You could set them cold if you have to and check them later when hot. And pull out all of t...
