Re: License Plate Mounting

I built brackets for mine using aluminum strips that wrap around the front bumper and screw to the license plate. On the rear the same brackets are held on by the gas can strap.

Re: Connecting Rod Torque

That's the recommended torque range after you run the nuts down evenly. I've been taught to use the middle torque setting when given a range. So your torque would be 50 ft lbs. You can go up to 55 ft lbs if want.

Re: Lube time and issues

There is no civilian equivalent for the U joints. Most of the parts vendors have u joints just try and find an NOS one instead of the cheap imports. I've never ran across a push in zerk on these vehicles. Perhaps it was changed and that a cheap import part. You could remove the U joint and tap the z...

Re: New Tires

If you go through Summit Racing, split your order in two and you will get $20 bucks off each order and the $60 rebate. I contacted Coker about the rebate and all they care about is that you buy 4. It doesn't matter if they are purchased all at the same time or as two separate purchases as long as th...

Re: 1949 Bantam T3-C for sale

You did a great job describing the trailer but forgot to mention an asking price. Unless its one of those ads that if you have to ask for the price you probably can't afford it. :lol:

Re: M151 Rally Possibilities??

Although Branson Missouri sounds like a great venue for a meet but the reason I chose South Bend was because of the community ties with the production of the 151's. I'm sure there are still a lot of folks there that contributed to the manufacturing of these vehicle. So not only would be paying homag...

Re: M151 Rally Possibilities??

I found a fair grounds in South Bend Indiana that has camping spots. Also what happens at MV meets other than an occasional trail ride or folks selling parts? I was thinking a meet & greet for those that attend. We can organize a local veteran ride along, perhaps a parade with the veterans. Would an...

Re: Grinding in 3rd?

I had that problem. The problem was me shifting too fast. I go old and slow. I can concur with this situation. What I do when shifting from 2nd to 3rd is take it out of 2nd and let the gear handle find its happy spot and than push it into straight up into 3rd. I think the grinding is caused by inad...

Re: Jarhead Bumper

What is a fair price on a Jarhead bumper ? :mrgreen: What support brackets do I need for rear shackles. ? :?: I think 100 -150 is fair but it depends on where your at and how bad you want one. You also have to figure in shipping costs too. I'll have over $300 bucks in this last one I bought when I ...

Re: Sluggish when starting

Load test each of your batteries if you think the starter is turning too slow. Just because they have ok voltage doesn't mean they are good.

Re: USMC Bumper

Thanks to pvtwinger I will have the bumper I've been needing. Since acudanut tagged on to my post and is looking for the same bumper I didn't want to post parts found in the title in case someone else has one to offer. I modified the title of the thread to show who is looking for one.

I will do what I can to help promote it but as far as going I doubt I will be able to between health issues and the fact that I am living on a very small pension and disability plus still paying a mortgage and living in the most expensive state in the continent for taxes and insurance. If this does...
