An army recovery mechanic told me that the claws on the tow 'A' frame are designed to attach to the tow hooks on vehicles such as 2 1/2ton GMCs etc. I was skeptical, as it looks like it should go on the tubular front axle, but the arms are not long enough. We tried it out at an MJCQ swap meet a few years ago. The boys had tied a timber board to the front bumper of a Studebaker US6 and put the claws on that. Yeah, it worked, . . sort of. We then tried it on the tow hooks as I had been instructed. Worked like a beauty! But knocked the paint around a bit. If I can find a picture, I'll post it.
I'm looking for the one-sided pulleys that are for the hook cables on a 969. Anyone?
Have a nice day. Sam.
