PU 58

Post by Adam » Thu May 09, 2019 9:38 pm

This was sitting at Aberdeen not getting much attention. Kinda ran on ether there, we will see. Poor thing came home with me.

Pretty much unmolested except for the post war oil filter and late cj2a or cj3a air filter. Nice tool box still on the top, wonder what is in it? Hopefully a period correct VR under that cover. some old farmer took some time to make that trailer. Its the rear end assembly of some old car or truck. pinion gear was pulled, and a pipe stuck in that goes to a ball hitch.

Hi Adam,
Hey that's great! Is it an MB engine (vs later)? Amazing that the tool box is there. Looks like fun!

Hi Adam, Enjoy reading your posts on this forum. I see you have another generator. So how many generators do you have now? Did you ever get any of your early PE95s with the Ford engine in them running? Best wishes; Leo

I got 2 of early generators with the ford tractor engines running, sold them,and parted one with melted generator windings. Also a sold a few of the pe95's and a N15. I have about 5 here, 2 of which are promised to a friend in FL. I did part a couple with burned out generators and the rust bucket with the gpw engine in it. I have 2 here that run and I use when the power is out for a few days. Its nice to run the electric water heater, electric range and electric clothes dryer all at the same time with a N15.

Took the genset off that trailer today. PO said it was a buick frame. Some old timer must of pulled out the pinion from the 3rd member and rivited in this drawbar pipe thing, Old school engineering, gotta love it. Looks like a corvette torque tube. Check out the shocks. I have never seen these except on a GP.
