Calling on international M9A1 and M5A1 owners
« on: October 20, 2015, 01:30:36 PM »
I am looking for some info on the passenger side folding seat frame fitted to the M9A1 and M5A1 models.
Underneath the seat and fastened to the floor plate is a scissor type linkage that stops the seat hingeing too far forward,
I had a photo of this linkage that I took a few years ago on a scrap M9A1 but I have since lost it.
My half track is the M9A1 model and I am at the stage of fitting my seats but have these items missing and would like some info photos or drawing so that I can make up a copy.
If there's any international owners who still have this item fitted I would like to hear from you.
Cheers

You mean the frame under the seat, like in the picture?

BAIV (British American Infantry Vehicles) BV is a Company located in The Netherlands with a well facilitated workshop (800 m2 / 8.600 ft2) in Maarheeze (close to Eindhoven) that supplies, restores and serves historic WW2 Armoured Vehicles & Tanks.

Hi
Thanks for the reply, no it's not the frame underneath the seat, there's a linkage that fits on the underneath of the seat and bolts to the floor plate, it stop the seat falling forward when it's lift upright.
I think there only on the A1 models but might be wrong about that,
Cheers Ian

Those parts are still available from Stanley or National Hardware. They are a lid arm.
