I looked at a M last night on the way home
The shift sequence was on the light bar left hand side, the only one that I need to put on yet can wait. the hitching instructions
I do not plan to put any decals on the fuel tank .
It will be a while before I get into the Sheet metal
Working on our 48 8n brakes.
Thanks for all the help

Have recently received a set of radiator shutters, I have the shutter ,linkage that attaches to the front engine cover, I need to make the following parts that are missing, the crank, 5/16 rods and the support bracket
I have a few pictures of the crank and rods, I also looked on the case IH web parts location and found a picture of the support Bracket, I need to know where this attaches so I can I can manufacture it. I also removed the bearing bars , want to replace what I think looks like a leather strip rivoted between two pieces of light steel.
Anybody have a M with shutter that could get some good Pictures for Me.
Thanks
Phil

Getting things together have the fenders,lights, hade the reflectors recoated with Nickle and polished up, on and will have the fuel tank on soon.
Picked up a Norm Quay battey box at SCRAP have to paint that yet.
But in the mean time , I am making parts to deck the M out.
I made two plugs to go into the hitch tubes that set in front of the axles, figured I would get something unique on there to keep the mud out, not that it will see any. So I made these, the screws hold the plug in , utilizing the thru holes on the tube .

Cannot make to sell, Would be TM infringments, but a one set only Item for our M
