Can't find M-715 info.

I'm looking at a 1968 M-715 and thought I could find info on my trusty JF world, but I seem to be looking in all the wrong places. Anybody help me here?

My father is currently restoring one. He uses M715zone.com for a lot of help. There is a guy on there who knows a lot on these trucks but I cant remember his user name.

M715 info

Hi from jeepdan,
Yes, there is an unbelievable amount of info over on the M715 Zone. From experienced advice, to all of the service manuals to reference.
Please register, introduce yourself. If you decide to buy it, show us some pictures, we love pictures.

Here is mine, a "frame off" two year restoration.

Was that M16 passenger mount original or was that added in by you? My Father has 2 of these cabs and they only had the drivers gun mount behind the seat. That truck looks amazing by the way! Very well done. I have traveled with my dad to Tennessee to get a non rusted cab for his restoration. His was turned into a Sheriffs truck and we are making it military again.

Like you mentioned, all M715s came with the rifle mount behind the drivers seat.
The dash mounted rifle mount on the commander's side was an option. It is illustrated in the M715 Parts Manual in the cab section.
Mine only had the rifle mount behind the driver's seat as well. I found and added the NOS parts for the commanders side mount.
I love it, and so do spectators at car shows.
Is your dad a Zone member?
My truck had been converted into a brush fire truck and was painted yellow, and I mean EVERYTHING was yellow. LOL

I think my dad is a Zone member but I am not 100% sure... I know he lurks the forum a lot. He got this truck from someone he works with. Her husband passed from cancer and she didn't know what to do with it, other than call a scrap yard. (yikes) The truck was all torn apart being restored before he passed so we just started loading everything up and put it in a large barn. Still sorting though everything but we have the chassis and axles together with a trans and transfer case in. Cab is painted and a SBC 305 Novak swap is going in it. Not sure what happened to the Tornado engine

That is a problem in a rebuild, how far to depart from the original. An all original parts (maybe from several vehicles) example will drive like an original and be interesting at shows, a modded one may just be better to drive.

Knowing the issues with the 230 tornado, I think having a small block V8 will help the truck. It sucks to rewire to 12 volt or find a 24 volt generator that will work with a V8 but that is our only upgrade. Other than those two non original stuff, its going to be all original. I have never seen one in my area so I think it will just be interesting to see it out

My dad found some manuals on ebay. Let me check with his manual to see if I can see what they have on timing. Sorry I just now saw this...
