I can tell this is going to be fun
conversing with this group. Down to the
brass tacks as I have secured a 48
owners manual and pick up the hummer
next week. I will inventory all missing
parts to start getting leads on. As for
a seized motor any ideas (just in case).
The guy I am buying this from has not
tried to turn it and u asked not to even
try.

I was told the jegs lube something or
other that is purple is best. Soaking
for a week or two and then trying...

And to ↓ not Duane...being scored with
a 97.5 is a very nice ride. Would love
to see a picture.

Duane, I had to laugh at your 'slight'
disagreement! Yes, for all intents and
purposes you're right.... but that's
mostly now because of you. Your parts
are Factory quality... and a recent
upturn on eBay with 48-50 parts
'suddenly' becoming available. Fenders?
(for years) impossible. Speedo's? Nada.
Rubber bands? Nope. Poorly tabbed gas
tanks? Rare. "HD 125 Tail light red
len's"? Still a Hen's tooth. Find a good
English pebble style seat cover?
IMPOSSIBLE. The AMCA Judges accepted my
seat cover and I made them take points
off. That's why mine is only a 97 1/2.
(I also had to point out to them my
voltage regulator was the wrong year).
Bobcat bodies? You rock!!!! I have to
ask.... does Janet have to come down to
the shop to drag you home for dinner?

ROOKIE:

WELCOME.
20 YRS AGO IT WAS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO
REBUILD A
48-50 MODEL. IN "SLIGHT" DISAGREEMENT
WITH BRENT, I
WOULD SAY THAT MOST OF THE PARTS ARE
REPRODUCED AND AVAILABLE NOW. HEADLIGHT
INTERNALS ARE ABOUT THE ONLY
REAL DIFFICULT TO FIND PARTS AND THERE
ARE SUBSTITUTIONS
THAT WILL WORK. E-MAIL IF YOU HAVE
QUESTIONS OR POST IT ON THE EXCHANGE AND
SOMEONE WILL RESPOND.

Welcome. The '49 is an early year and a
lot of the correct parts are hard to
find.... but you've come to the right
place.
There are many members here that have
started down the same road you find
yourself on and are willing to help. I
started with a '48. Enjoy the journey.

Just wanted to introduce
myself as I just purchased a 49 hummer
barn find. I have had and built a custom
03 sporty and now I am looking for
anyone's best practices for restoration.

Thank you

Lee
