That is the drivers side mount for the cross member that runs under the transmission. It is riveted to the frame rail, but you can cut the rivets off and bolt up a new one. I have reproduction parts available for both the mount and the cross member.

Got seal replaced on pto output shaft. Got seal from JR halftrack parts. Had to unbolt winch and move forward to get shaft off. Those bolts must have been put in in 1943 but I got them out and was able to reuse them. First time cleaning cosmoline from new old stock parts. Posting some pics for your pleasure. Question on frame part that looks like it was torched off,it’s on driver side near pto assembly. Hope it wasn’t there to support tranny!
Next project, pull tracks so I can get to breaks that are dragging bad. Adjusters are frozen. This will be my first time pulling tracks

Come back to Idaho and go shopping. I have those two halftracks that had been cut in half and they have all the parts you need.
I know I am far away from you but if you want to fly out we will make you a pile and ship it back. I have those front bumper parts you need also.
Im sure everyone would like to see you again,

Ryan, a place in St. Louis is doing a batch of wheels right now.  They basically are using a poly composite mix, like a resin to create new tread.  It should last nearly forever and is about $100 per wheel to do.  Not sure how far along you are in getting the wheels disassembled as it is a job and a half but you might want to consider this option for your wheels.

I see what you're saying now that I'm looking closer at it. The back if plate is too thin to be screwed into. I'm going to have to make the pins and weld them in. I would be interested in those seals, and many other parts to be honest . I rebuild many diff mil trucks but I'm new to tracks. I just retired from the army as an mechanized infantry dismount. So these trucks have got me hooked being the predecessor of the Bradley fighting vehicle. So I have 2 of these tracks now that I will be doin frame off restoration on, and I need a good parts guy. The one I have been dealing with just ripped me off a grand for shipping costs. I think everyone here probably knows the guy, but I let myself learn the hard way. Are these seals new double lip urethane rubber, or nos leather ?

 I do not believe the pins are designed to be removed. They were pressed in and perhaps spot welded. I have most all brake parts. The springs are hard to find I may have a few take offs.
 I have most every seal for the half-trac vehicle. email for my list. To kplockwood@cox.net Take advantage of the winter sale.
