  1. Mostly original parts from a 1930s South American contract. Most numbers match. Cradle and can holder are original. Pedestal is perfect, may or may not be original. Socket looks original. Comes with A6 buttstock, bipod, flash hider. Those 3 items are Izzy. BNC connector for electric. Small gas connectors. Coil, valves, board are inside gun. $2100. Jesse.
  2. Does anyone have any information pertaining to Weasels used by the Navy and Marines during the war? I know that they did have some, but beyond that there is very limited info out there.
  3. Rebuilding the latches is simple. Open the barrel by grinding or drilling off the crimped end of the rivet. On this particular one, both ends were crimped. Drive the rivet out with a punch.
  4. Hi, I wanted to know if in addition to the construction plates of the hull there are chassis numbers printed somewhere on the vehicle, because unfortunately on my weasel I did not find any plate. Thanks
  5. Fortunately I found my USA number on the hull side which helped identify my weasel. Apart from the USA number, all other data plates and hull tags etc were missing. On the old weasel forum I posted my USA number and was surprised to find that Jim Gilmore had the sister to my weasel. That gave me the ORD number for mine and I had to take a guesstimate on my Hull tag. As my weasel was a Letterkenny rebuild I opted to use a NOS post war ORD plate and I had Robert at Data Plates 4 U https://dataplates4u.com/ make a replacement Hull tag. I also had my stencils made by this company in the UK. https:

  8. Since I have one track off as I plug weld the floor in, should I pull the rear end and replace the steering bands? It hasn’t been driven more that 50m before I started restoring the floor. Should I do any seals on the bogies? I have a spare set NOS. I plan on rerubbering (cold vulcanize glue and strip rubber) the drive and idler wheel also. any ideas?
  9. Sorry about the outage this afternoon. I did not have the autopay set up correctly and they just turned us off! All fixed. Patrick
  10. Back in 2009 Steve and I recovered the other Australian T24 from a rubbish dump near the snowfields. Unfortunately none of the original data plates survived and the Australian Army only catalogued it as a 'Studebaker Lorry ARN13999'. This weasel belongs to Steve so I am only going to post in this topic my involvement in it which was to rebuild the hull. There are many photos and it will take time to upload the full story. This T24 had a similar fate to the T24 I wrote about in another topic. The pictures better tell the story. The first photo shows this T24 as found
  11. This is my T-24 #577 project. It has what I have been told are a set of french tracks. Hull leaks water out quicker than you can put it in. I started working on it about a year ago and found multiple shades of bondo and then even got into some leading repairs. Got the belly cut out and now working on patching it back together.
  12. Thanks Patrick from starting this forum. I restored a M29C about 6 years ago. It was about the same condition as the T-24 you have. Lots of hard, dirty work ahead for you. I was rear ended while in the work van in 2016 and suffered a brain injury. That leaves me with difficulties walking, talking, and doing simple tasks. I lost the Sexton, halftrack, and my ranch. We tried to sell the weasel, but didnt seem to have much interest at my price. So, its still around here. My son has been working on it, actually made it a floater. I can offer technical advice but thats about all. We take it to some
  13. After 30 years of MV restorations I have been clearing out odds and ends parts. I have produced many obsolete M29 repro parts over the years. You can check out my website for what may be available or contact me by PM for your needs. Regards, Gary Szechy www.garysbunker.com
  14. I just signed up for torture and abuse. I am on my 3rd. Weasel, the first two being a T-24 and an M29. I had them back in 2004-07. I have located a conveyor belt seller here in town, have purchased enough to rebuild my broken track. After doing some research and asking questions, the belt will be stronger than the original bands with the same flexibility. It took me just under 6 hours to drill all the rivets out of 1 track, 660 rivets. If anyone decides to go this route, hang onto the original track hardware as it can be used again to reassemble the outer belts.
