Military-Vehicles: [MV]Dust Shield on Pinion Yoke

[MV]Dust Shield on Pinion Yoke

I just tried to order a "Shield Dust Pinion Yoke" (don't you like the naming
conventions!). This is installed on the pinion yoke of the front differential
of a 1945 MB.

I was told that no-one supplies this anymore, and even the later models that had
this (apparently through 1971) no longer require this shield. I was told the
function of this part was to help cut any small vines and things that might tend
to get caught on the rotating shaft.

Question: Do I need to find one? Is it truely optional? Are there some
benefits to having this? If one is desired, where can I get one?

--- This list is great! Where else could I get this type help. Thanks in

Enjoy your day -- Preferably in an old (1945 MB) jeep.
