    In my opinion, I would change the grill to an MB style. The big difference is how the headlights mount. On your grill, the headlights are mounted in a bucket that is affixed to the grill face. The...

    Welcome setsenod,

    Looks like you have a body of a MB '41-'45 by the driver's side tool indents, the fuel tank fill location and the rear fender tool compartments. The grill is from a later year.

    The bolt pattern is the same, but the center is too small for the front hubs. The offset will also be off, bringing the tire extremely close to the wheel wells in the rear. A M151 is a four well...

    That will work just fine. When you cut back the rust, use a liberal amount of rust stopping paint on the inside of the remaining bracket, before you weld in the new piece. Then it will be a forever...

    Then I would use a die grinder and cut out the rot just enough to get to some workable steel, then patch the hole. You don't want to go too extreme, just enough to build back up the integrity of the...

    It looks to be part of the frame. The second picture looks to have the piece riveted in?. Or are those carriage bolts? The first picture shows threads at the nut, so if you can unbolt, it would...

    Better yet, I will launder all your vehicles through Alabama, where all I need is a bill of sale, (some want notarized, some don't care) license it, then sell it back to you for a modest fee. Then...

    Each state is different for sure. When I was younger, we would trade cars and trucks left and right. Local hardware stores could handle title transfers and temp tags. Just as soon as you got your...

    The pipe plug with the center threaded is an original part. The threaded hole is for the fording kit, and a brass fitting goes in it to vent up into the air cleaner assembly. Usually the tube is...

    Something like a labor of love. Between averaging 60 hours a week, taking on side jobs, and other obligations, there isn't much time for my own junk.

    Great plan on going back to original on the fuel set up. I'm fairly certain that the A1s kept the vacuum wipers throughout the service run, so the original style of double acting fuel pump/vacuum...

    What's fun is when two lugs were replaced with right hand thread, with the remaining three still being lefty threads. Been there, seen it. Have to look at all lugs for the L or R stamped on the end.

    Just about as bright as watching one of our shop kids rip the plastic lug nuts off of our Ford shop trucks hub caps.

    A 2A column runs the wire down the shaft, but has a contact at the base of the tube, before it goes into the steering box, (Ross style). The later M38A1s didn't use a long wire, but rather a long...
