    Default Unidentified weapons parts

    I found this items within a few feet, as if everything larger was collected for use as scrap metal. The pedal made me think it might have been some small AA gun, or something similar with a trigger pedal. The battlefield dates of mid-april 1945.
    Any clue?

    These are all parts from a WW2 US Ford GPW Jeep.

    The pedal is for the clutch. (Willys MB Jeep pedals were rectangular)

    The large item is the bell crank arm and forms part of the steering and is from the front axle.

    The part located between the bell crank and pedal is a bearing shell from the crankshaft in the engine.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Mike, Yes, that is me. I still have the photos of the Van taken in North Africa. Never seen any more pics of them in the years since.

    Here is a pic of my Jeep in it's current guise. Still in British Airborne configuration.

    Hi Auseklis, you will be able to see the pedal in the pic.

    Cheers, Ade.
