Here are a couple pic's of the Pintle Hook re-chaining. I got to poking around on the internet about Pintle lock pins and found some of the guys here had a thread on CCKW pins. I ended up selecting a 3 inch x 1/4 inch (7.62 cm x 6.35 mm) cotter pin. got the other 2 styles to see which one seemed right and I went with the short cotter with a slight opening of the tip to provide tension in the bore.

Here is the reference:
viewtopic.php?t=281492

I had remnants of the old chain sill on my Pintle, so I smacked out the old splined rivet and installed the new chain from a local hardware store and smacked the old rivet back in. I used 1 foot (.304 M) of chain and it seems to be a good length. It still seems easy to loose the cotter pin off the chain tho...

I got the old War Horse Loaded up and rolled out at O'dark thirty to the Chino air show and that was the first time I had pulled a "Rated Load" of 3500 Lbs (1587 Kilos), not to mention the gear I had in the truck which was about 1000-ish pounds (453 Kilos). I had to actually take off in 1st gear!!! The set up worked fine and no issues were observed.

I got back on Sunday to re-stow the gear at home and reached down and felt the rear axle hub flanges and they were warm to the touch, maybe 100-ish degrees F (37 degrees C) I thought to my self, "Wow, I was actually working the old Girl!!!"

She took it like a Champ!

Great to see you and your Chevy getting out. How was the top end speed and torque while pulling a load? Any long steep hills?

If it’s anything like my G506, you can never be in a hurry.

It is mostly "flat-ish" around this neck of the woods.

It was a short 8 miles to the air field and back, I traveled to/from with water, I didn't drain the water at the airfield. The elevation change is only 100 feet in that distance from the Chino air field to my house. My house is the higher elevation.

I was rollin' about 30 Mph-ish (48 Kph) @ 1/2 -3/4 throttle through surface streets, I'll have to get into the throttle more next time I have her loaded up. I didn't have anybody riding shotgun, so there was nobody to show off for. Torque and shifting felt normal other than having to short shift from 1st to 2nd gears.

Rapid movement is not one of the G506's better attributes... :lol:

Really dig your setup there, btw.

Hey Cody,
Great looking camper, are those troop seats mounted on the outside of the body?

Thanks, She is amazing to drive...it is kinda surreal to me to drive an old War Horse like that after wrenching on it for so long.

Yes, If you look at old WWII and pre-war documents/photos there are examples of them flipping the troop seats "Outboard" to use them as shelving. It is done mostly with 2 1/2 ton trucks, but it does say 1 1/2 truck too.

It works great! The seat legs rest on the outside of the bed running board, it is nice because you can stand on it too, but the rear most leg area is a bit flexy because the rear leg wont rest because of the diagonal brace on the rear of the bed...notice the big 26 inch door stars, the book is dated 1946.

Here is some motivational film for those with projects pending.

Still trying to learn the use of my new film equipment, Never did much filming. The new filming is better that using a cell phone, a lot less wind noise and vibration, still need to put a wind sock on the microphone. Gonna have to document some off road operation for reference and training.

I sure do like driving with the windshield up, "G.I." air conditioning, 20 degrees cooler at 20+ MPH!

Great videos Cody, thanks for the upload. Hey, I noticed something about your truck because of them. You should have a scabbard on the port side of your dash, there is a hole there just to the right of your glove box for the mounting bolt. :o

Thats affirmative, but I need to make or find the little bracket that goes to the end of the M1 rifle holder. Plus I need to find a rifle holder to put on the starboard side.

I have the foot bracket, only one though. It is very simple to make. I was thinking about having a shop build some, then offer them up on here on the "G". What do you think?. Finding a good scabbard shouldn't be too hard, finding one at the right price may be the challenge though.
