Hallo M715 FIN,
Timken is Timken, were ever you buy the bearings. The bearing numbers are allways the same. Radial seals are also standart, CR radial seals are awailable in Europe since SKF bought CR several years ago. Try to buy tese parts at an Industry part supplier. The Tie Rod End Cover are available at Surplus City Jeep Parts, 4514 Pacific Heigths RD, Oroville, CA 95965, US for something like 1,95$ one each (http://originalmilitaryjeepparts.com/m715/M715.htm).
Greetings

Hello everybody. It has been a bit silent for this project. The problem was caused by an old invention. "MONEY". Every time you start repairing something ... Need to buy or order new parts: / I started to power the electricity ... Both of my light switches were broken, I split up both parts and were rusted completely, same was with windscreen wipers So now order more parts...

More or less yes. The three lever light switch is a mill standard part meaning the same part was used on M38A1, M151s, M35s, M49s, etc. Pick up any three lever light switch from the 60's to - just about present will work.

Yes, except that you have to watch out for the ones from the early 50's as they had two plugs instead of the large one. I believe they changed at the same time as the change from Douglas to Packard fittings.
