Re: Overheating Issues

Yes i changed the thermostat, hoses are hot,coolant level correct level,cap holding pressure. I have heard of water pumps leaking ,I just dont see how it wouldnt pump water. I think i will change the thermostat first.Also i can tell its overheating not just inaccurate gauge. I will tell more tomorrow.

When i took the cap off it didnt seem as though the water was moving. The system was pressurized when i took the cap off so i dont t...

Ignition left on

If the ignition is left on overnight with an electronic module in the distributor, will this definitely destroy the coil and module? I am charging the batteries now and hope she starts right up.

Brake Shoes Orientation

OK...going goofy here,I cant find in the T.M.s where it would state if the longer brake shoes go in front or in back. I believe the longer shoes are installed in the back on the Mutt. Yes or No????

Magnesium Wheels

What years were the magnesium wheels installed on the m151 series. Were they only on the straight 151's?

Re: Transmission Suppliers

I have an early take out A-1 or straight 151 engine that has a Muncie Indiana tranny attached to it and a few take out A-2 engines with Howa Machinery Corporation of Japan trannys attached. The engines are standard bill of fare. I always thought the Howa's were a good tranny, but because of our invo...

Differential suppliers

151 A-1 differentials had a prefix number 8 and the A-2 number started with 11, Is there a difference at all between the two? I was also wondering who made these units. I see some replacement units built in Korea,are these quality units. I would assume so.

Transmission Suppliers

I know that early trannys were made by Muncie and later trannys were made by Howa but i was wondering what other suppliers made transmissions for 151s.

Re: exchange diffs

You should also check to make sure the rear motor mounts have not compressed to the point that the transmission is resting on the crossmember as that will transmit a lot of noise also. Happened to me....changed to new motor and tranny mounts and quieted things quite a bit.
