Default M41 Walker Bulldog pony motor

Hello Guys,

I am trying to find a Ordnance maintenance manual TM 9-1730F
for the auxiliary generator out of a M41 Tank.

The details I have are

Make= GM Detroit Diesel (petrol)
Model= A-41-1 or A141-2
Voltage= 27.5v
Amperage= 300

I think the TM number is correct but it could be TM 9-1739F/TO 19-45-133.

I need any info that I can get on this particular gen set as I am about to restore one, and the torque settings and valve clearances would be very helpful.

I will try to find out more details off the data plate as the engine is not with me at the moment.

Thanks,

Brent Delaney.

There are two resouces that you can try for that TM
CMH Center for Military History ( USA)
US. Nation Archives both are on line and are outstanding
sources.
I recommend you try the later first.If you dont find anything
me and I'll hunt some more down

Gidday Pony soldier,

Thanks for the reply, I will have a looksee at those sites and get back to ya.

We do have a 41 but its a bit sick at the moment, 2006 should see a concentrated effort at getting it home.

I have a photo somewhere, but I will have to dig it out.

I'm flat out scraping paint off the house.


Have a good new year and

Thanks,

Brent Delaney.

Yeah, 'finishing the house' is part of Keeping The Wife Happy 101... allows us to to accomplish other, more masculine, things. Don't say I said that, though...

Great pictures. Looks like you have you hands full

breech assembly for the main gun do you??

Gidday Patrick,

Yes there is a breech block available for it, there is approx 80-85%
nos parts that come with the deal so its not all bad sailing.

Paying for the running costs by the time we get it going, well now thats a different story

Cheers,

Brent D.

Do you know if the gen set is the same as the gen set in the M5A1..If so I have the manual TM 9 1727 F which has the gen set specs in it..Give me what details you can and I'll check the manual and see if it may not be the same set..
