  1. 406 Pre-SEE 82

    Unimog
    I have a pre-SEE also. I heard somewhere that there were 9 made (and maybe two different engines among those 9?). It's a '61 (per the title) that was modified and now has a 12/31/1982 delivery date and an 82 on the VIN. One unique thing, that I haven't noticed on any other mog, is that the...
  2. Anyone know the provenance of my new Mog?

    Unimog
    Am I the only one that thinks we need a TV show "Life of a Mog"? I don't think there is a one that has led a boring life - they get bought/sold/repurposed so many times. I know my '61 406 was at one time with the Oregon Forestry Dept, then went to the California desert. My '79 MB4/94 used to...
  3. For Sale and Wanted

    Unimog
    :'-( One of those things I really really want but can't justify. Hope it's going to a good home!

    Mills and Mogs... ... two of my developing hobbies. They go together like bacon and eggs. What do you have for mills? On the Forestry Forum? I'm thinking of a Norwood HD36, but won't be serious until next fall.
  5. Conversion of U3000 into a flatbed, box van and camper.

    Nice! Curious about the generator box - how do you ventilate it (air and for cooling) but keep it quiet?

    Jealous! I love the Mojave, and used to 4-wheel there a lot 15-20 years ago. I highly recommend Dennis Casebier's guide (and how can you go wrong with name like that?). I took a trip or two with him in the group, a great guy. It's a guide book for people who never use guide books. There is...

    grrr - this site loads soooooo sloooowwww, and in reverse order, that I didn't see the previous reply saying the same thing. And, since I'm a newbie, I can't edit or delete my own posts....

    I believe 2nd holes like that are common in shafts. I think it's used during fabrication to grind/hone the shaft all at once on a lathe. Rather than chuck it and end up with a mismatch due to having to do it in two setups, a pin could be used in the 2nd hole to turn it while it's supported...

    They're showing daily summaries on NBC Sports HD (channel 220 on DirecTV).
  10. Bolts through Bed

    Unimog
    Oops I was comparing zinc plated bolt price to stainless - McMaster and Bolt Depot are about the same price on the stainless.
  11. Bolts through Bed

    Unimog
    McMaster Carr is my go-to place for hardware - very fast and about 1/10th the price of Bolt Depot on these: https://www.mcmaster.com/#elevator-bolts/=15gknv7
  12. Our mogs at work

    Lifting rocks I placed some 3,000 lb landscaping rocks for my neighbor today.
  13. Where was your Mog today?

    New Home! Hey Steve - I've been busy catching up with work, but I got everything home safe and sound. I asked the crane company to send a flatbed with a crane on it to unload the trailer and move stuff to my house - they sent a brand new 80 ton monster and a flatbed. It sure made unloading a...
