Hello Carl,

Welcome to this forum. I would suggest staman army trucks and tanks:
http://www.jeeparts.nl/

He is big on dodge and jeep but also on sherman parts and he does business in England, just send him an e-mail.

Wim

Hi Wim

I have already tried him and he doesn't have anything. He had a pair and sold them to a Peter Arldeson ? in Holland. He has a sherman and M 10 i understand. Do you know him by any chance ?

Carl,

It's a long shot, but you might want to try the Brussels tankmuseum. There is still a fair amount of WW2 relics on Belgian army ranges. All of these are now owned by the Brussels army-museum. I seem to recall there were multiple M10's among them.
Maybe they are willing to trade the parts.

Carl,

I seem to recall that somewhere I read that the 17 pounder used a 25 pounder breech block. I'm afraid I cannot confirm this as I do not have the relevant parts lists.

But I'm sure someone on MLU will be able to confirm my suggestion, or rubbish it!

Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
