[MV] Cross Refrence Guide

Tue, 12 Oct 1999 00:43:06 +0000

I have, after scrounging for a few years, come into
possession of a very large library of various civilian
and military parts books. I am now toying with the idea
of publishing cross reference guides to various military
vehicles for parts such as filters, u-joints, brake
parts, water pumps, belts, clutch parts, light bulbs,
fuel pumps, gaskets, bearings etc. I would put several
vehicles in each one, such as the first one will be
MB/GPW, M-38,M-38A1,M-151/A1/A2. the second would most
likely cover M-135/211, M-35, and M-51. The rest would
depend on what people asked for. These would list the
military stock # or nsn and various manufacturers and
their part numbers. I would also list parts that can be
substituted for the originals. I have spent enough of my
time in front of a parts counter with a guy saying "M-
what?" and realize how much easier it is to go into a
store with a civilian part # ready.

The guides would sell for aprox. $25. The process of
putting them together would be very time consuming and I
need to get an idea if there is enough interest out
there to make it worthwhile. If anyone has any feedback
please let me know.
