Front End Teardown

First thing to do was start the strip down. The M3A1 Scout Car had obviously sat outside for a long time, with nasty corrosion everywhere. One of the nice things about an armored vehicle is that the body work will rarely rust away with 1/4″ thick armor plate. It was certainly the first time I had had to use an engine crane to lift off the bonnet! With the bonnet out of the way it was time to pull the motor, a 5.2 Hercules JXD.
