M2 Halftrack Base Shop Data Book - New Thread

Post by steve1973 » Mon Aug 28, 2017 3:38 pm

Due to Photobucket changing their 3rd party posting I lost all my photos on an older thread for the Halftrack Base Shop Data book I’m selling so I decided to start a new thread. This book is 600 pages of step by step how to instructions and diagrams on how to do almost everything on a halftrack. This book was put out by the Rock Island Arsenal in December 1942 for the British Army. If you have seen the Base Shop Data Book for the M3A1 Scoutcar then you know what this book is all about.

The books are $100.00 each and $15.00 for shipping in most cases. The book is 2 inches thick printed on good quality paper, better than the original. There was a lot that went into getting this book done and think you will enjoy it. This book, to me, is like a backyard mechanic's book. Everything is described in detail with lots of drawings, for example, the electrical section for wiring it shows pictures of each component with the wires running between them. It also gives the wire gauge and length of wire. The manual shows how to test each gauge and it's placement on the dash. Detail info and testing of the heater unit. There are over 70 sections in this manual. Some are one page where as others are more. There is a lot of info that is not included in the basic set of manuals out today. This would make a great addition or a good start, must have for your restoration. This is not meant to replace the other manuals but a great addition to them.

I should have a new batch ready for sale in two weeks.
