  1. Thanks for the excellent information. Bumping so others can add their photos as well.
  2. Outstanding, send me some more and I'll add em to the dropbox!
  3. And a couple more robots for good measure
  4. And the Robots plus a few offs and ends
  5. Lets start with the older 90mm variant 90 mm Army Service 1.bmp 90 mm Army Service 14.bmp
  6. Well hello! I am hoping this will be a thread where people can post pictures of their TGB 1111 as well as any stories. The first link is a drop box repository of every most TGB 1111 picture I've found on the web sorted by 90mm vs Anti-Tank missile sub sorted by any army unit number. Please add pictures and I'll download and add them to the drop box. I think it makes a great reference for someone looking to purchase, explore or set up their own, either stock or another configuration. Every TGB 1111 I've found on the web If you see yours them please speak up!
  7. I'm trying to find a battery box table, by which I mean the table that went above the battery cover on the TGB 1111. You can see it on the floor in this picture, the table with a grid bottom. Also if anyone has some Unit signs they are looking to sell I can make a good home for them. Any of the military parts that someone might have such as the cross brace or a clear instrument panel mud guard etc etc I'm trying to find. Contact via Personal Message
  8. fixed the link in the last post, please check out every TGB1111 photo I've been able to find over the last few years.
  9. Here are a few more recent photos from Mogfest 2019: In the never ending quest of fixing things since the last update I've done the following (or my mechanic has!) Retimed the ignition, no more pinging Dropped the fuel tank and fixed a split seam, the inside was coated by the Army before demobilization and is in fantastic shape bypassed the inline mechanical fuel pump, replaced with a electirc pump at the tank, pushing instead of pulling, two inline filters, bypassed the float bowl and rerouted to avoid overheati
  10. Trucks been running great, up until the distributor on the new electronic ignition burned and started sputtering. I thought it was a carb issue, a torn baffle, but it was in the end a very easy fix. The backup light's plastic switch on the engine disintegrated, so I've got it wired up to a spare headlight switch that went into one of the open slots on the dash. I fixed my dyslexic spelling of wiper fluid and coolant, that was a little embarrassing. I also got an adapter finished for an RPD, which I've mounted occasionally in the M240 mount. I don't drive
  11. Yes, thank you. That is what I mean. Due to the age/previous use, poor preventive maintenance? For whatever reason all the plugs for the front power ports, and the rear port on the right hand side rear lamp are broken. I have simple plastic plugs in them that work in a pinch, but I'd like to have proper ones again.
  12. Yes, sadly.... my dyslekia kicked in, even though I was taking it directly from the original. No one here will know the difference, but I'll know! So I fixed it and ordered new stickers. Thankfully they are very inexpensive here in the US, under 10 dollars shipped for the two stickers, so nothing is really hurt except my pride.
  13. She's running great. Painting is 95 percent done. Touch up needed in a few places. Got the hydraulic arms installed and can use the box without fearing for my fingers. So much fun to drive and quiet again! Temporary grill guard:

I wasn't able to find anything original, it was silly of me to think 40 year old decals would be available right? I took plenty of measurements before sanding the truck which destroyed the old decals. I think these are a very close match, although they are not 10
  15. I wanted to give an update and ask a few questions regarding some odds and end parts. First the bad/good news. I had a pretty bad exhaust manifold leak and my timing was shot. I ended up having almost no power and I couldn't even get her up a hill except by crawling in first gear. It was pretty awful. The fix was way past my skill level, but thankfully there is a fantastic mechanic in my town who's hobby is restoring old Volvo car's with just this engine. I'm very happy to report that I'm back in business. Now there is a new electric ignition and both exhaust manifold leaks fixed
