Nice! That kind of innovation is what makes America GREAT!

When I do my passenger side (also with new bearings), it occurs to me to go at the shim situation from the opposite direction. Instead of assembling it with the shims it had when I take it apart I'm g ...

Hi Wes,
Shocked There's no need to insult me. I was promoted out of hands-on avionics trades about 35 years ago. And no, not to become a lawyer. You have my apology if my "tone" offends you.

Thanks Wes. I understand reluctance to commit to a "safe to use?" question in a public forum --- that's my ultimate decision isn't it.

I'm just trying to understand yet another apparently obscure o ...

Thanks Wes. Because both are marked with the same part number 44917, I'll assume it's just a style change from "V" slot shape to parallel slot shape for some unknown reason. By what you said, I'm gues ...

Hi Adam,
If the existing paint in those small areas is sound (no flaking off, etc) and the metal underneath isn't corroded or delaminating, there's no reason to sand it to bare metal. All that need b ...

Absolutely Wes! I think protection is always a good idea. While the Army removed it from the M38, I put it back on mine. Too much invested to leave home without protection. Bad things happen with shor ...

I recall that diodes are also commonly used for voltage regulation but didn't consider that above, mainly because the jeep already has a voltage regulator and most military 24v components are robust e ...

I could use expert brake opinions please.

My left front backing plate has deformed and enlarged mounting bolt holes. At some point they were loose and wallowed themselves out. I'm pretty sure it's ...

Thanks Wes. Yes, I wasn't certain that the military transistorized flasher was sealed and not serviceable. Too bad because it's probably very cheap to repair because it's so simple. Has anybody ever t ...
