la posta di Tom! (tech inquiries to MVPA)

Post by pierino » Mon Apr 27, 2015 10:52 am

dopo la partecipazione di MVPA alla Colonna della Libertà, nell'ambito della ricerca di sinergie all'interno della cerchia mondiale dei collezionisti di veicoli militari d'epoca auspicata da HMV, è stato deciso di offrire un nuovo servizio, dedicato esclusivamente ai soci italiani di MVPA (ed a prescindere dal club italiano di appartenenza, ovviamente):

questa sarà "La Posta di Tom" (Wolboldt), che oltre essere il segretario di MVPA, è un grande conoscitore di questo nostro mondo, ed un potente ricercatore.

su questo unico topic sarà possibile postare - esclusivamente in lingua inglese! - le proprie richieste tecniche direttamente a Tom o, per lui tramite, alla struttura MVPA.

ATTENZIONE! questo non è il luogo ove richiedere riviste mancanti, libri e adesivi etc... QUI sarà possibile richiedere informazioni sui nostri veicoli di esclusivo tipo archivistico (date di produzione, dettagli storici etc). questo non è il luogo dove chiedere perché la nostra jeep non parte... 8)

spero di essere riuscito a spiegare il senso e lo scopo di questo strumento... ma, eventualmente, faremo degli aggiustamenti in corso d'opera...

un'ultima nota: OGNI RICHIESTA DOVRA' ESSERE ACCOMPAGNATA DAL PROPRIO NUMERO DI TESSERA MVPA! :wink:

Hello to all,

This thread is open to all USA vehicles.

Here are some of the data points that can help you to learn more about your vehicle or vehicles. Photos of these data points are most helpful. Even if you do not need the history on your vehicle the data will still be most useful to others around the world looking to learn about their vehicle's history.

Serial number data plate data - Serial number ____________
***** Original - Yes______ ? or No______ ?
***** DoD or Date -_________________
***** Weight stamped on data plate - ________________
***** In case of jeeps
**********Stamping in small box above the serial number stamping - ________________
Frame Number
Body Number - ___________
***** In case of the jeep
*********Rear panel has script Willys or Ford - Yes________ or No________
********* ACM type 1 - Yes_____ ?
********* ACM type 2 - Yes_____ ?
********* Ford - Yes______ ?
( ACM type 1 [ 5 hole body gusset ] the number is at front outside edge )
( ACM type 2 [ 3 hole body gusset ] the number is on the front face )
( Ford made bodies have no gusset number )
Motor Number - ___________
********* 638632 on lower right side - Yes_________?
************** Casting date numbers to left of 638632 - ______________
********* GPW 6015 or lower right side - Yes________?
************** Casting data below distributor and above the GPW 6015 ( if available ) - ____________
Hood number - _________________
******** Original - Yes______ or Estimated - Yes________ or Unknown - Yes________

These data points will be a good starting point. I may ask for more details on an individual basis to better fine tune your vehicle's history.

Hi Tom

Yesterday I was talking with Maurizio about my CCKW, looking at his beautiful steering wheel
Image
When I bought it and restored, I decided to protect wood with special oil and not to paint it. But maybe during the war, it was easier to paint it with the internal structure and all was OD.
Is there any reference or specs about this point?
The only think I know is that at the beginning steering wheels were made of hard rubber and then changed in late '42...

Maybe you can have more detailed infos 8)

"trifido", Tom non è più il segretario di MVPA (ma le sue conoscenze, ampie, sono immutate...

comunque,... sei socio MVPA? ... perchè la premessa per scrivere su questo topic era l'essere socio MVPA,... ;-)

dopodichè... controlla bene il s/n della tua Willys... 8)

Ciao Maurizio, grazie per l'informazione, io sono iscritto al forum g503. Gli Americani mi hanno consigliato di contattare Tom via FB ma non ho ricevuto risposte, quindi ho tentato di contattarlo tramite la posta di Tom. Purtroppo il telaio è privo di SN.
Grazie per un eventuale aiuto.
