We were down at Brent's Military Museum about 4 years ago ane we got to tour his warehouse. Brent had just got back from a Flea market in Belgium and he had racks full of Halftrack Boogie wheels Stuart Tank Idler wheel rubber idlers . Yep Check with Brent . Also stop in his Museum the next time your in Texas well worth the time. Don Shaffer N.E.Ohio

Also check with "Dinadin" here on the "G". He has a source of a place in St. Louis that takes the old bogies, strips the old rubber replacing it with a perfect replacement. It looks great and makes your bogies like new. In fact, that Halftrack that did the 2000 mile convoy had those bogies on it and he reported he could not tell any wear! I have a set of them and they look great!
