  1. Today
  2. Thank you! I greatly appreciate your work with this! and my deepest apologies but I forgot to include my body tag as well
  3. Yesterday
  4. @Price USMCIf Rob is out of stock, then try Gary at https://www.garysbunker.com/shop/m29-parts/brush-guard/ He might be able to help.
  5. thank you Patrick just reached out to him now.
  6. Not a lot of work done last month. Had to travel for work so Weasel has been silent. Anyway got some new items for the Weasel. Engine cover which needed some repairs. Have a rear floor panel, which needs some repairs in the future, but mainly new footman loops. Looking for some advice on the color. As my Weasel is an M29C everything was olive drab off factory. Anyway a lot of recent purchased items are white. What shall I do, repair and repaint in white, or stick with the factory olive drab color.
  7. Hi all, Looking for the connection of the electrical fuel pump, which is bolted on the fuel tank itself. Below picture should make clear what I'm looking for. Thanks Frank
  8. Last week
  9. Well I know a total of 15,123 Weasels were produced and I believe they serialized them sequentially so 15,037 might be the oldest surviving at this point!
  10. Looking for an M29 Grill/brush guard to purchase and not concerned if its a repro or original.
  11. Id like to add my Weasel to the list USA 40199509 Ser # 14361
  12. @Conner BushAs John @OZM29C points outs...it gets expensive quick if you have to find all the little parts. I know of an unrestored M29C in Michigan..not close, but not terribly far. The guy is trying to sell a semi-restored one without tanks plus the unrestored one for $13k. I haven't seen them, but I do have pictures. PM me if you are interested and I will send you pictures and can put you in touch. Patrick
  13. @Conner Bush@Patrick Tipton Conner, if you decide to restore an M29C fitted with floatation gear I would highly recommend putting the hard yards in to purchase a weasel with as much of the float gear fitted to it as possible no matter what the condition. That way you have the option to either pattern or repair these unique parts. Anything Amphibious = $$$$$$. For a vehicle that was destined for a short service life the float tanks are an engineering marvel. Facsimile tanks unless done properly do look out of place as in the photo below. Having said that I would study and compare photos of M29C
  14. @Patrick Tipton Do you know if there are any available in my area?
  15. Do you know if they are hard to make on your own?
  16. @Conner Bush that's most likely doable, except for the float tanks. Those are normally over 5k alone in a needs to be restored condition.
  17. I am most definitely in the market. I’d definitely prefer a project for me and my grandpa, probably in the $5K range. I live in Iowa but I’m not against some traveling. I’d prefer some with float tanks if possible.
  18. @Conner BushYes it sold. Are you in the market? If so, project vs running machine and where are you located. I know of several for sale. Patrick
  19. I worked a little more on this engine. Super happy with how it is coming out. After about 20 minutes of running, the compression ranges from a low of 95 to 104 lbs...from the TM we are looking for 105 lbs so those are good numbers in my book. This engine was in a flood and sat for 20 plus years - first in Arizona and then upstate NY. The bottom end was very clean but I replaced the rod bearings because while still in spec, they only had about one thou left in them. The mains were nearly new and looked great. I did a valve job on it, replaced one exhaust valve and just cleaned up the cyli
  20. Earlier
  21. @F.Janssen Just sending through my engine number for M29C7333. T24-10275 Please note that this engine is not original to my hull.
  22. Thanks Rob i will try to fit them there. Larry
  23. Appreciate it John @OZM29C! The Studebaker crankshafts were forged so it is pretty interesting that they were cracked - something extreme must have happened! The crank in this motor was in excellent condition - there was still a little over a thou on the rod bearings but I replaced them as I was in there. The mains were within new spec and all journals showed almost no wear... I have two other cranks...the one with the bad babbitts and one that came from a junk Champion 6 but the crank still looks decent. Surprisingly the bad babbitt crank journals don't look terrible...I will ha
