M-1 BOMBLIFT PARTS

Post by RANGER »

Anybody have any spares, especially wheels? I have two NOS 1943 dated M-1 Bomblifts and have found a third that is missing a wheel. Am also looking for any of the bomb handling devices such as yokes, lifting bars etc.

Frank and Ranger,
Any chance either of you have for sale or know where I can find a WWII USN Mark 2 bomb trailer? I'm looking for one to restore that I can tow behind my AC tractor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a couple of the WWII Navy Mark 2 bomb trailers, what is your location? Are you in the States?
Also, all my tractors are Allis Chalmers to.
I was thinking the same thing you are but with a WWII air drone trailer.

Frank,
I'm located in Austin, Texas. Have sent you what I hope is a direct email. I just started using this site and haven't figured out all the buttons yet.
Thanks for the response and regards.
