    Hi everyone, Have been working on this project for quite awhile now. Being last on the priority list in world of family, home-renos, space and funds ... I totally get why one sees projects others have 15 years into. So I'm going to look for some pictures from the start till now, post them and then continue.

    Wasn't sure if this post should be in Projects but decided to put in it's area of interest. So Dave if you think it should be moved I'm cool with that.

    Also would love to here from others with experience on these trucks. Please through in any ideas, suggestions and how to's on here.

    Thank-you ... and now I'm picture hunting:)

    So I'm having issues with the use of my laptop.. trying to download, size.. etc with this new windows 10 is frustrating. So much easier in windows 7, learning curve I guess. I did start a G+ M37 site of my build some time back so here's a link to that ... https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/101853331992921195789
    Some good pictures from when first getting the truck up to close to where I'm now. Lots of material missing due to an old computer failure but some good news is my wife found a storage of forgot pictures in CD form, so to put time into those would yield the tear down photos.

    The photo hunt continues

    There is a high chance ... Fargo, International, Dodge and Power Wagons have things related in one form or an other. Do you have a NP200 transfer case with a drum style hand brake attached to it ...:) There are lots of little things that I need as the build continues... for example ... 24v waterproof plug wires ... have a list somewhere. Things like the swivel pintle that had to be cut off I found can be replaced from Acklands Grainger.
    Would be awesome to see what you have. I think the only difference between civilian - M37 during that period was the body style. Being a Canadian truck there is some differences, engine block size, tranny, PTO I do believe is interchangeable, interior heater, cold weather prep stuff, everything else is the same.

    The drum is 7 3/4, not sure if that's worn or not. Was wondering if the mounting tab beside the drum is different with yours, but I'm thinking that they both should be NP200's.

    Hope the build goes better than the picture issue. Good luck. Can't wait to see more

    I bought a bunch of parts years ago.i was told there was some civilian m37 parts included...Sadly the drum diameter is a little more than 6 inches,lets say 6 1/8.i guess the guy was wrong.Sorry,but I will keep my eyes open for anything M37.
