    Here is a thread for posting valid part numbers and parts sources for IHC M-trucks.

    Please post what vehicle the part fits, or if it fits all models.

    Got to be careful on ePay, sometimes the parts listed as IHC are for an obscure vehicle, like a K8 dump thats has a 6 volt negitive ground system and uses a sending unit for a 36 gallon tank that only that guage will work with as a matched pair. I learned this the hard way when I bought an NOS sending unit off epay, it would read 3/4 of a tank when full. I did finially figure out the perfect bend in the float arm, and it was a pain in the tookus.
    Last week I saw someone buy an nos throwout bearing listed for an M2 on ePay, it closed at $64 dollars after a couple of enterprising collectors bid it up at the end. This bearing probably has dried up grease in it and is worthless, because its a sealed unit, it will be a screamer you can count on it probably two months after you remove the transmission and slide it on with a smile. Just a couple weeks back I took a couple of takeoff throw out bearings down to B&A friction there a clutch shop here in San Jose they pushed off the old bearing and pressed on a new bearing on two for $47 dollars out the door.
    Becareful on ebay sometimes rebuilt fresh beats unknown NOS old junk thats been sitting in a mud puddle for 65 years.
    I went and looked at the guage it looks like the right type and light tan for the early M2-M3-M5 trucks and the part number looks like a K5-K8 style.
    So it may be a good find. Untested as it may be.

    I don't know if anyone is reading this thread any more but if anyone thinks it is useful I would like to spend the time to congregate all the e-mail info into one reference.
    There is a lot of advice on Part numbers and repair help in this forum for the M-2-4 and it takes new guys a lot of time looking it up.
    Take a look at the attached chart example and see if you think the project is worth the time.
    I do keep seeing new guys picking up M-2s and it sure would be a help to them and to guys like me who have their head up and locked.

    I found that with some judicious grinding to take off the shoulders that jeep winshield thumbscrews will work on the m-2.
    They run about $7-$8
    I found them at the Southern Ca MVP meeting.

    Paul, are those Jeep parts something that are available as a reproduction? Do you have any suppliers' names or part numbers? Or are you talking about used parts? Also, where on the windshield are they? I know nothing about wartime Jeeps.

    Ron Fitzpatrick Jeep Parts

    He is located in southern Oregon, and has a lot of good stuff. I have seen him at military vehicle shows, although not in the last year or two around Portland. Among other things, he has brand new cable sets (choke, throttle) for the IHC M-series trucks. Jeff N. got a set for his M-2-4, and they are perfect. He is a good guy to know. However, his website leaves a lot to be desired. It is great for the guy that knows about his vehicle, but not so good for the rest of us that who may need photos for clarification.

    I saw him at Fall Tower park. Did not know he had M truck parts. Thought they were all Jeepers.

    There is some xover between military vehicles. here is one hint... IHC used Delco electrics on the M trucks... So did GMC, Chevy and Studebaker to name a few.
    Some of the gauges are the same for Mack, Reo and Autocar.
