TM9 1710 ~ Ordnance Manual ~ Power Train ~ Half Track Vehicles

This is a quality reprint of the US Army Manual, TM9 1710.  Originally published in July of 1942.  It is an important companion to TM9 710.  We also have TM9 1710A.  This is the same manual except, judging from the cover was a reprint the government produced, most likely in the mid to late 1950's.  It is not uncommon as much of the WWII equipment was still  in use, but the manuals were consumable.  If you're building one, this volume should be in your library.

From the Manual:

1.    Scope.—a.  This manual is published for the information and guidance of ordnance maintenance personnel, and is the first of three maintenance manuals for half-track vehicles.  It contains detailed instructions for inspection, disassembly, assembly, maintenance and repair of the power train (axles, transmission, and propeller shafts) for half-track vehicles, supplementary to those in the Field and Technical Manuals prepared for the using arm.  Additional descriptive matter and illustrations are included to aid in providing a complete working knowledge of the materiel.
