Re: Restoring one of Milwaukee's Gasoline Mobil Directos!

Quick Update

Siren has been bolted to the trailer.

I have commenced the teardown of the trailer hubs to repack. Glad I am doing this, as the little remaining grease is all dried up and getting crusty. New wheel seals have been ordered.

I was able to purchase a set of new tire/rim assemblies. The good used one will be the on-trailer spare.

I can already visualize seeing a video of you pulling the siren into Camp Tesomas for Sirencon 2023.

I know it's been a while, but out of curiosity are there any updates on the directo?

I posted in March asking for an update on the Milwaukee replacement in the community systems thread for it. No one responded despite it being a big scuttlebutt when it started. I'm beginning to think it was a rumor that got out of control. Glad to be told or proved otherwise.
