Yeah, sure, ya betcha.
A Deutz air cooled diesel is very cool but everything but everything can get stuck. Rare in this case I think would mean you are on your own. Big price to pay for PE; and I have a 1977 U1000!

I need to swap out the Blackwater look and go back to a lifted stock. Tossed the wheels on my Coats 220 to do some tire changing today and learned that the stock MB alloy wheels can be a serious pig wrestling match. On wheel #2 I gave up and took 'em to a shop.

Wheel #1 took about an hour. More time if I count where horsing the tire around broke my machine from it's mounts.

Very nice! Is that an OM603 or OM606 engine?

I have vague memories of riding in the back of a tan Willys just like this one, down a very rutted and flooded two-track on the way into the family deer camp right around 1970. The one I rode in though, had a bit more rust!

OM603 naturally aspirated 6 cylinder diesel. Just took it out yesterday and have a bunch of work to do on it over the winter but it'll be nice when it's done. Thanks

My 14 year old wants to paint my 55 like this. I'm thinking about tearing her down and letting him have at it.
