Meyer Snow Plows ElectroLift Service and Instruction Documents

• CATEGORIES: Documents, Features

These there documents should help someone service their ElectroLIft units for the Meyer Snowplows.   Neither has a date, but I would guess these are close to 1960.

There are two ElectroLift control types, one mechanical and one electrical, so make sure you know what type you have. This first form provides installation instructions for the mechanical type. It is Form Number 1-101. Page 2 shows only. a partial electrical diagram. I’m not sure why only the partial diagram shows.

Imperfect .. Perfect Circle Branded 10-Spline Selectro Hubs on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Parts • TAGS: .

These are imperfect Perfect Circle hubs as a cam is broken (see broken part in pic one). However, there are some useful photos of these Perfect Circle-branded 10-Spline Selectro Hubs.

View all the information on ebay

“Selling the used locking hubs in the pictures. These are aftermarket and called Perfect Circle. We don’t know much about these hubs. My husband said he removed these from a 1971 Jeep truck that was in a junkyard. He thought they were neat and brought them home. Of course they are the special 10 spline hubs. These appear to be complete, but the “cam” piece (#8 in the schematic) seems to be broken on at least one hub. Look closely at the pictures and determine if they are something you want. Maybe just a little eye candy for the bench area. These are being sold for parts or not working. Hopefully there are enough good parts here to allow someone to complete their project. These are very clean and ready for a new owner.”

Lower left part is broken.

As you can see, the Dualmatic schematic is similar to the Perfect Circle Schematic, though, surprisingly, the casting of the base is slightly different. I’m betting the cams are the same though.

1946-06-30-beatrice-times-nebraska-jeep-surplus-sale-benecia-lores

=======================

Originally published November 5th, 2020: The June 25, 1946, issue of the San Francisco Examiner shared the news that more than 5000 veterans lined up begining at midnight to purchase just over 1500 available jeeps, though not that many jeeps would actually sell. For most veterans, there multi-hour waits were in vain. The buyer of the first jeep discovered that his jeep wouldn’t start, but the motor pool helped him get it going.

Globemaster Airplanes and Jeeps

No year listed on this press photo that shows a slat grille MB being loaded into a Globemaster. The photo appears to have been ordered on July 2nd, 1947, but that’s likely not the date of the photo.

Classy Jeep at Kaneohe, Hawaii

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Sedan-jeep

This undated article and photo from an unknown newspaper was posted to Facebook where Roger Martin spotted it. The “classy jeep” is driven by Lieut. Commander W. P. Tyler, USN, of Medium Seaplane Squadron Three. There were eighteen privately owned jeeps undergoing modifications. My guess is that the photo was taken  post WWII given the jeeps were privately owned.
