I am currently in the beginning stages of restoration on a 12/41 US M3A1E1 White Scout Car powered by a Buda 6cyl. diesel engine model 6DT-317.
I am trying to find photos, Russian Units assigned this car, parts sources overseas and in particular the manual specifically for this vehicle TM 9-1705D. This vehicle and manual are referenced in the previous manual TM 9-1705C for the Hercules diesel version.
All diesel versions were shipped to Russia under Lend-Lease and were distributed to the Soviet Forces as scout vehicles due to the speed and weight.
There were only a handfull of the Buda models made versus nearly 100 of the Hercules. An additional 3,000 gasoline models were shipped at the same time.
Any information on European sources/contacts would be greatly appreciated.
