Default MK1 Cdn grease gun bracket and grease gun.

Jordan has been asking for photos of this bracket for a while now and I finally located the bracket in my collection of stuff. In the one photo is a NOS grease gun and hose which I believe is for the carriers. The salvage yard I found them at told me they came in a crate marked FORD. They have the Alemite Brantford Canada cast into the handle.

The bracket is held on top of the right gas tank by the two tank retaining straps, and the hose goes up behind the radio operators seat to the dummy grease coupling on the flare gun bracket.

Anyway, here are the photos:

Will do, but it will have to wait until tomorrow evening. Too late now and I'll be away most of the day tomorrow.

This is one of those things only carrier nuts would get excited about. Once the seat is in place it is hard to even know anything is down there.

No worries, Ive waited how long just to see a picture of this bracket. I can wait another night. And I am a "bit" of a carrier nut. So hence why Im excited.
