M100 or M416 Landing Leg Pivot?

Post by Chuck Lutz » Wed Sep 13, 2017 1:05 pm

I have an NOS one with two holes so it isn't a WWII one, the remnants of the tag glued to it has "DLA 700-82..." but the rest of the tag is missing...

So...is it a M100 or M416? Will it fit the G529 and M100 trailers or is it for the M416 which I hear the earlier one won't fit on and vice-versa?

The 82 in the tag may mean a 1982 procurement contract??? May more likely be a M-416 part

The M416 pivot is noticeably smaller that the M-100 or MB-T pivot. The M100 part will fit perfectly in the WW2 trailers, just doesn't have the middle locking pin hole

I talked to you about the M-100 pivot at Petaluma, I'm still interested in it if it turns out to be one for my '53 M100.

M-416 pivot:

Hm...anyone have their MBT/Bantam disassembled and an give some measurements for it in a few locations?
Marty will be first in line on this one if it fits his M100...but...is it for an M100 or M-416?

Hi all,
Looking at the 416 one in the photo, the flange with the holes in is the other way round to the MBT casting in the second photo, if you see what I mean?
Can you tell from this what it's for?
Cheers,
Chris.

I see what you mean Chris...this one is not like the M416 so it is in fact an M100...Marty has first dibs on it though.
