  1. @Patrick Tipton Patrick, again brilliant work. Your attention to detail raises the bar on weasel restoration. Why would someone go to the trouble of cutting the brackets off???? I have seen them crushed and torn off but to cut them off????
  2. I machined the bushings to suit from stock bronze. A very simple job for a capable machinist.
  3. @04mustangAs an alternative to the return roller needle bearing, I have fitted bronze bushings. This mod was done to the Australian Weasels operating in Antarctica. This mod also allows you to fit a wider bushing (on one side only) to more evenly distribute the load. The take out return roller shafts that I have all show extreme wear in way of the needle rollers. The needle rollers don't take too kindly to lack of lubrication and being exposed to water/moisture. Just a thought. I have attached a couple of photos for you to study. Cheers Return roller gasket.pdf
  4. @Patrick TiptonThanks Patrick👍👍 @Will DodgeI believe that the stretcher brackets on a T24/M29 differ from the M29C. Patrick may be able to help out here. The attached photo of Gile's weasel in the UK clearly shows a rear stretcher bracket but I am not sure if this is OEM or Norwegian.
  5. @Will DodgeI think that the handles would clear the driver with room to spare. I apologise for the photos being upside down, this happens when I post photos with my I phone. Hopefully @Patrick TiptonPatrick can correct the photos for you.
  6. @Will Dodge I hope that these photos will help
  7. @Will DodgeI can take photos showing the individual stretcher brackets fitted to my Weasel if that would help.
  8. @Will DodgeI think this excellent photo of Brock Jolliffe's M29C might help to answer your question.
  9. @F.JanssenAny chance of identifying the weasels that are fitted with flotation equipment?
  10. I refitted the accelerator mod kit to my weasel as it had already been partially fitted before I got the weasel. The mod works well. No cables etc. Took some extra time to fit it as the instructions call for the various panels to be flame cut and then filed. If you read the attached instruction sheet you will see that there was a good reason for the change with an Urgent priority. All in all though its your choice. MWO ORD G179-W9.pdf
  11. Dave Yamulla would be your best bet.
  12. @Patrick TiptonThe ORD 9SNLG 179 that Patrick sent me states that an M29C Capstan rope is 3 strand 3/4inch (19mm) diameter 100feet(30.5metres) in length. There were two part numbers for the rope, one part number supersedes the other. The older parts manual lists a tow rope for the M29 1inch (25.4mm) diameter 20feet (6.1metres) Long with7/8inch(22.23mm) hooks.
  13. Hull no. UST-24-949 ORD 1002 USA# 40122704 ARN145623
  14. @Patrick Tipton Thought this might be of interest to fellow weasel owners. Attached is the Weasel trials report conducted by the Australian Military. Unfortunately there is not much left of 145623 today. 145623 has the ORD number 1002 making it the last T24 built before switching to the M29. Anyway enjoy the read.
