Re: GAZ model F.S.

Dear Amphib-friends,

I have just got the mini-Gaz in my post-box from Latvia.
Perfect model for nearly no money.
Good investment to park it near my and maybe your GPA, Amphicar and Schwimmwagen-models on your toy-shelf! :-))

Regards,
Jan

Re: Was there ever a single page GPA lube chart

HI Donovan, As far as I know, there was no issue of a lube chart for a GPA. Just the pages in the MM TM-10-1263 page 13 to 20 incl. The US-Army sure had plans for that issue but the GPA-production was "unforeseen" cut off. This soon after ( we know now !) negative feed-backs from the users...

Hi Cees, The resistor is located underdecks behind the black out lamp left. There are 2 small holes to mount the resistor with 2 screws. Distance between the holes about 4 inches I think. Sure there will follow a good photo after your request. If not I will try to find one. Hope the holes are still ...

Re: unknow GPA parts?

Hi Bob, Never seen before these parts! Could be early GPA (!?!) according Bob but ...the best is to look arround in- or outside your GPA to try to find matching holes somewhere. With a little fantasy it could be a trailer- E-plug-protection-plate or else. Above the deck-plate or under. I realy don,t...

Re: Oil in the Coolant.

Hello Bob, When the piston oil rings are in a very bad condition oil comes on the cylinder top during every crank/start procedure. It is possible that the piston is pressing a little oil in the cooling system during the strokes when the head gasket is in bad condition. Your first mail says that is w...
