    GMC 6x6 some questions

    Guilty as charged but I rarely go on there now as I sold my jimmy some years ago.

    If you join the CCKW forum you will have access to all the jimmy experts on there.

    GMC 6x6 some questions

    They were 6x6 and you are correct in that they did split behind the cab. The front part was supported by a jockey wheel to assist loading into aircraft, fishplates were used to connect the two halves.

    42 GMC cckw

    The type of body fitted is totally irrelevant, until the vehicle is plated , tested and registered as a goods vehicle it is illegal to carry a load unless that load is a fixed part of the vehicle, End of story.

    Looks like the type of cab fitted for civi use in Europe post war.

    Humber front hatch fluid

    If you have difficulty obtaining ISO10 try m/cycle dealers, that's where I used to get it.

    Kay canvass tent quality,

    I have a Pathfinder US small wall officers tent I will sell. It's all complete in correct bag with bag of pegs etc and a groundsheet but is heavy and would need to be collected.

    How to find a members list?

    Hi Olaf, yes, we used to have a member list and it was on recently as I looked at it but it has disappeared now. I think you need to have a word with Joris. ps I wonder if it has anything to do with the new privacy laws which came into force recently.

    Jerry Can tops

    Yes but it screwed in unlike the Brit type which as you know clamps on.

    Jerry Can tops

    Screw top on right is an American fuel can, clamp top is Brit type fuel can.

    Hotchkiss 24 volt not charging

    As the Hotchkiss was specifically designed for radio suppressors were fitted in all the circuits. If any in the charging circuit go faulty this can cause the fault you describe. The easiest solution is to cut the appropriate wires.
  14. This years National Armed forces Day is scheduled for 30th June almost in my backyard in Llandudno and had been asked by the local Blind Veterans UK ( St Dunstans ) home which I support to take my jeep to transport vets and also for it to be on their fundraising pitch. However the MOD in their wisdom will not allow this to happen for security reasons. Go figure!
