  1. Thank you Guys, this is what i needed when I was fitting them. Hans Louis on FB can source them I believe. I have also seen the other company sell these tracks on the Facebook page and on Milweb. I am led to believe there were two guys doing the weasel Staman tracks, then they parted ways and one of the guys is still doing them but nothing to do with Staman. If I find the guy I will post his details on here.
  2. Byron’s TM1990 Rubber Track Manual for Weasel M29 & M29C This manual explains how To fit the rubber track kit ready to accept the rubber tracks.

  5. Hi Will, it’s taken me 6 months to complete this weasel....... but is it finished..... debatable as I’m still having teething issues now. Radiator had a melt down and decided it had had enough, it cracked last weekend. Previous to that, the fuel pump pipe inside the fuel tank decided to collapse. All these things are 70+ years old and after being put under use after sitting around for a long time they are starting to show their age. the rubber tracks are great. I am making a TM manual on how to fit them just for fun. I’ll post shortly.
