MB is a nice topic, it is never ending. The M-38/M-38A1 topic is also a nice topic that compliments MB history. Discussing M-38/M-38A1 will shed theretofore never realized features of the MB that influenced M-38/M-38A1 development. Many of the improved features were driver and passenger oriented.
Note that there is comparativily little M38 and M-38A1 expertise exhibited by the MB/GPW crowd. :wink:

For the M-38A1:
Has anyone ever seen Willys Part No. 809959, ORDNANCE Part No. 8332677? It's a small fibre disk and is not pictured in any of the M-38A1 SNL's.
