Restoration Complete, Restoration Continues!

Post by Zwoodman » Thu Dec 31, 2020 3:22 pm

Well my 44 John Wood M3A4 restoration project is completed, my 43 Rock Island Arsenal cart continues! The 2 draw bars from Ed Snyder and screws for the footman loops are being held hostage by the postal service? They were received at the distribution centers in PA and OH and that's as far as they got? All I'm lacking on the RIA cart is a rim and tires! Anyone who can help with a serviceable rim.....it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

Zane

What is the diameter of those rims, lip-to-lip?

Are the spokes round, or oval?

Lip to lip they are 13 inches with round spokes.

Not rightly sure? Saw the pair of NOS sell for $650 and those were complete with rims, tires, tubes, hubcaps, and possibly all the bearings and bushings!

Okay, well, tomorrow AM I will be going to a place that I know has a matched set (oval spokes) in good condition. I'll look them over more closely.

Ok one more question.....what style of straps go on the footman loops.... leather or canvas and is there a length that is standard for all carts no matter what is loaded on them? For me, I'm going to using my handcart for pack 75mm projectiles.

Still looking for a rim for my Rock Island Arsenal cart and a front tongue clamp! Using a makeshift metal strap for now!

Thanks for looking.
