I started the restoration of a 1943 T-24 a couple of weeks ago. I intend to document the restoration here. I bought the Weasel from a well-known Weasel collector and friend. He had stripped the hull, had it sandblasted and was starting repairs when he found a really immaculate T24. I got most everything with the purchase that I need to restore the vehicle other than tracks, including a second M29 that is ugly but fairly complete. There is a lot of rot along the floors - particularly at the edge of the floor and outer sides of the hull. The previous owner had already cut much of the right side corner of the hull off to repair it. You can see this in pictures below. He had cut the left side as well. There is a pretty good amount of rot along the floor side gusset as well as the in the lower tunnel. I spent a little while poking around to see what was reasonable to save and then decided to go deep and just cut everything remotely ugly out and start replacing metal. Next step - lots more pictures and then a lot of cutting and grinding
Hello All, this is my first weasel restoration and a new member to the forum. I ran into a problem removing the drive wheels. After consulting the TM, I removed the axle bolts and pulled out the right side axle. But there were no seals or lock nuts, etc. as pictured in the TM, just a hub like sleeve with no visible means of removing it (see pics). The drive wheel spins freely so I thought maybe it was just pressed on, after some taps with a rubber mallet I gave up. Is there a special threaded removal wrench for this? Or am I missing something? Thanks steve
Good day all. I’m interested in some tips and tricks on using the forum. Particularly posting pictures. I’ve been searching by pushing different icons to find how to send pictures and couldn’t figure it out. I use my Apple smarter than me phone for all of this. I know how to take a picture and build a text or email around it. I’ve yet to learn how to add to an existing message. I always start with the picture and have not figured out how to do this in your format. I hope to learn a few tips and hopefully others have questions or shortcuts to share as well. I enjoy the ideas and method shared on the site and can see it will be extremely helpful as we navigate our project. Thanks Fred
