I checked Nelson's website....no mention of any MBT/Bantam G529 parts. If he HAS MBT parts they are not advertised. When was the last time you spoke to Phil and he confirmed he had G529 chains available? How much was he offering them for then/or now by the way?

I believe Phil was at the convention in Louisville this past summer. He had an NOS in the box F script air cleaner for sale. I bought one of these from him many years ago at about 1/5th the price he was asking for it now. I think he recently had parts for sale in the trailer forum and in the MB/GPW forum. Best wishes; Leo
