  1. Hello All, As I'm missing my data plate, I was looking for information what my serial number could be. Unfortunately there is not a lot data available. Anyway, the numbers I did found (with at least 2 numbers known) I compiled in below table. If you have numbers, please add them so we have a list of serial numbers for reference. I also had contact with the Studebaker Archive, but apparently there are no production records available for the M29(C). Anyway I have seen a production record for the US6, us I'm assuming they have something, but it is just not digged out of the pile? Does someone know if Studebaker has any records on Weasels? Thanks for filling up the list..... Frank
  2. I have gone through all the parts catalogs, TM's and articles about the weasel and compiled a list of all the production changes that I could find. The list is by no means a conclusive list of all the changes that happened during the weasel production run, so I would very much like people the chime in if you have anything to add or if you find any errors in my list. The one that are in red text are the ones that I'm unsure about and would like to have confirmed. I hope this list will be useful to anybody restoring a weasel to factory specs. All production changes follow the ordnance serial number, found on the data plate behind the driver seat, and all changes came into effect on the serial number after the one stated in the list. 807: Oil seals instead of just gaskets are now installed on the drive sprocket shafts. 1002: The heater switch is no longer installed.

    Weasel #2

    2 months ago I had never heard of a weasel. By pure accident I happen to meet a fellow who had one in his garage that he wanted to part with so I bought it. I posted photos of that in another thread. Well, he mentioned he had a friend who had one sitting in his yard who really wanted it gone. I was happy to oblige. Just picked it up today and brought it home. Does not run but seems to be mechanically complete. Super excited to work on both of these but... did have to reach an agreement with my better half that I wouldn't start until I finished our living room remodel which will take most of the winter. Here are some photos. It does have data plates but I have not had a chance to clean them off and see what they say. Will post those in the next couple days for those who are curious. -Richard video_20201122_134242.mp4

  13. Hello everyone. Just making a post to introduce mysels on this new forum. Name is Tom, but called Jeep Tom (due to jeep hobby). Live in Sweden. Been in the weasel hobby since 2008 when I bought my first one. I think I have about 10 weasels at this moment, various conditions. T24, M29 and M29C. I have had more bot sold of during the years to also buy other military vehicles to my collection. At this moment I am restoring one of my floater weasels, but it goes slow, much else comes and take my time. Total about 35-40 military vehicles in my collection together with my girlfriend. MB/GPW, HD WLA, BMW R12, Zundap K500, BV202, BV206, MT-LB, CCKW, WC57, WC52, TP21 Sugga etc. also have a home page. www.jeeptom.com Adding some various pictures, probably most have been seen on FB.
  14. As the title says, the bearing you need for your Capstan winch drive pulley is a FAFNIR KF10 Bearing. I found a replacement bearing for my winch pulley from this company; https://www.mmbbearings.net/
