    You just need a Garand to put in that holster

    You need a replica Garand to fill that scabbard:

    The heck of it is - that replica costs almost as much as my first CMP Garand...

    I think we will snag a replica M1 Carbine to display in the Jeep. We had a ton of questions..."what is that?" Reffering to the rifle mount. That question will answer itself once the rifle is in its place

    A perfect step back in time! The Garand is just one more piece in a fine attention to detail.

    Speedo cable & hand throttle....

    The speedometer quit shortly after we picked up the Jeep. The speedometer needle started jumping around right before it quit so I suspected the cable had snapped. With a NOS cable in hand it's time to swap it out.




    Found the speedo cable snapped at the drive end connection on the transfer case.






    NOS cable, before cleaning.

    Gauge cluster removed and cable removed from back of speedo. There is a small washer that is re-used on the end of the cable at the speedo end. The cable pulls out from this end.

    Lubricating the cable as it's slid into the housing.




    Next up is swapping out the hand throttle to the correct unit. Our M38 had the later model (M38A1) skinny lever hand throttle installed, I'm swapping it out with a NOS M38 wide handle hand throttle that matches the handle on the fording valve.

    As found Skinny lever installed.




    Throttle removed and here you can see the difference between the two.

    Adding some sticky back foam to the inside of the wiring tray behind the instrument panel. This should help eliminate rattles from the waterproof Douglass electrical connectors resting on the tray.






    Buttoned back up with the new throttle in place.
