TM9-1710A ~ Power Train (Axles, Transmission, & Propeller Shaft) for Half-Track Vehicles
This is a quality reprint of US Army Manual TM9-1710A, “Power Train (Axles, Transmission, & Propeller Shaft) for Half-Track Vehicles”.  Originally published in July of 1942, it is an outstanding reference for the M2 and M3 Halftracks.  Judging from terh cover, I believe this is a reprint by the government in the mid fifties.  This was not uncommon.  Much of the WWII was still in use in the 1950s but the manuals were consummed.  It contains the same information as the TM9 1710 we have available.  If you have a Half-Track then you should have a copy of this manual.  Originals are getting too expensive to get greasy. We all have watched original copies of this manual continue to increase in price so collector item levels.  Here is one for a fraction of the original that can be used in the shop.
