Hi.

I get my parts from several suppliers, unfortunately most are in europe or the usa. You can Google them to get the Web addresses.

Truck parts trading (netherlands)

Reomie (netherlands)

Us army military shop (germany)

Big mikes motor pool (usa).

Kublos surplus (usa)

Eastern surplus (usa)

Also of course you can try good old eBay.

Hope this helps

You are right I had forgotten about them, they seem to have a lot of good looking 9 series trucks now

 

I have been in touch with them they do hold parts for M35 a2 but they don't supply a list of parts you ask and they tell you if they have one and the price. I am after a master brake cylinder. While im on here what is the brake/hydraulic fluid I have seen some were DOT 5 is this right?

Dot 5 is what your truck would have had in it when in service, but your truck may have dot 3 in it now, when Dot 5 is new it is usually purple in colour, unfortunately as it ages it tends to turn yellowish which is the same as dot 3 the two types should not be mixed. If you take some dot 5 and add it to some water in a jar and shake it will not mix with the water, but dot 3 will mix. For loads more info check out steelsoldiers.com

You can also download all the technical manuals from there for free. Also there is a Facebook page called M35a2 deuce and a half which has lots of like minded people on it. Big mikes also sells a remote master cylinder reseviour which is a great investment, as you don't have to keep taking the top of your master cylinder to check your brakefluid level, you can mount it on the firewall or in the cab and easily check the level every time you run the truck. Don't forget to post some pictures.
