    Dukw or Gmc steering wheel

    Hi Matchfuzee, Thanks for the link , I will have a look at my friends steering wheel but I think that is a bit too much when you add in the postage
  5. Hi , My friend is looking for a decent steering wheel for his Dukw , If anyone has got one to sell it would be handy , I think it would be the same as a GMC

    Dukw parts

    Thanks for the fast replies Pete and Nick but we have been to see Rex in fact that is where the windscreen came from but he did not have the side screens , I just thought it was worth a punt on here in case someone had some lying about , The only other option would be to fabricate some, Paul

    Dukw parts

    Hi to all, We are restoring a Dukw in Lincolnshire , At the moment we are missing the two side quarter light ends for the front windscreen , There may be other things we need as the restoration progresses but if anyone has any spares for a Dukw we would be glad to hear from you . We are hoping to have the Dukw fully restored to attend the 75th commemorations in France next year, Thanks Paul.

    Polsten Quad Manuals

    Today we had a good look round the Polsten and worked out the method for taking the gun off the towing platform , I now know why you need some strong men , We unlocked the Guns so they could go up and down and unlocked the revolving central mounting so the guns could spin round , Then we started the engine which was surprisingly easy and we were away , There was some hydraulic oil coming from the breather on the top of the pump so that will have to be sorted but all in all we had a successful day
