I had quite a productive day.
Having the guide wheels removed.
And also having the idler wheels off.
These came off very easy, and I'm happy to not having to do a lot of work on the axle.
The carrier / arm needs some TLC as they have weld the grease hole shut....and it has a lot of wear.
Edit:
Although it now comes to my mind, that this is already a replacement as it is a solid rod.
This as the originals are tubed.

Inside the tub, only the final drive is remaining...

Not a lot of work done last month.
Had to travel for work so Weasel has been silent.

Anyway got some new items for the Weasel.

Engine cover which needed some repairs.
Have a rear floor panel, which needs some repairs in the future, but mainly new footman loops.

Looking for some advice on the color.
As my Weasel is an M29C everything was olive drab off factory. 
Anyway a lot of recent purchased items are white.
What shall I do, repair and repaint in white, or stick with the factory olive drab color.

Can I offer a suggestion, discard your old Phenolic Camshaft timing gear and fit a new Aluminium gear. Its a lot of work to replace a camshaft timing gear should you have a failure!

Can I second John’s opinion though Experience

Looks great! Did you reproduce the ign. Switch decal? I would like to buy one or get the file.

Hi Dave,

Yes it is reproduced.
Let me check if I can get the file, as I did not made it myself.

It is made as a decal, same as you use in model building.
You can print it on special decal paper using an inkjet printer / apply 3 layers of clear varnish / cut out / soak in luke warm water / apply.

regards
Frank

your engine cover is painted white because it is was fitted on an ealier weasel ( M29 early or middle production, or T24) try to find the later one with the holes for the stretcher brackets, you can also drill it . you do a really nice restoration, with lot of details!

your speedometer is too early for your M29C, try to trade it for the black needle

Thanks a lot Laurent!

 

I know of the speedometer. 
It is a repro one, and I bought it for a reason, although I don't know what it exactly was any more, I think to be able to substitute with my Willys
