Here's an alternate solution that uses only existing CMP seat parts. The clips holding the seat base to the riser are : large part (green) - standard Cab 13 hold down bracket and small part (also green) stop to limit seat travel (normally mounted to the two holes above and to the right of the clip in the photo. When I grabbed the parts off the shelf for the photos I thought the small brackets were also Cab 13 seat hold down clips but have since changed my mind (but I am convinced the hold down clip would work). If you don't have extras sitting around, they should be easy enough to make using the clips in your cab as patterns. While taking the photos I realized that one of the riser feet needed replacement.

Default Seat installation and Onan generator

Bruce thanks , that's awesome ! You found it ! Genius, yet so simple .

When you go under your box you will notice the four holes for the seat brackets drilled in the floor.

One set is in front of the Wireless table , centered . The other set of holes are on the left side , parallel and centered with the left rear window . That is the cypher clerk position. There should be a small table on the wall for that operator. This seat is offset to the left of the front operator's but it is a tight fit for the rear guy 's legs..



Now for the 110 Volts , 1 KW ( 1000 Watts ) Onan generator model 10LS-6.

Not all but some Wire 5 trucks were equiped with this generator and also a 12 V Chorehorse as opposed to two Chorehorses on top of each other in the generator box.

From what i understand , the Onan version was for the High Power version of the No 19 set radio suite at Brigade or Div level .

Anyone can tell me what they look like ?

Photos are from the generator handbook found in Derk's spare parts box for the set.

Anyone got a nice clear picture of the set and the data plate ?

Any source for such a generator set ?

I am setting up the High Power version of the Wireless 5 truck as i have the complete , 1944 dated ( same year as the truck ) Canadian No 19 HP suite on my shelf ready to install.

All i need is dimensions for the metal table for two part HP units on top please. It is my only missing part now. Thanks .

Default No 19 High power set

Gents,

I plan on installing my Canadian No 19 High Power set in the box .

High power units were used in Artillery and Armoured Regiments to communicate with Brigade and / or Brigade to Divisional HQ's .



I am no Sigs officer nor a CW expert but i have friends...and we will make this work. Eventually .

So here are some pics of my set . The Wire 5 box was purposely made for it with the Onan 110 V generator and kit .
It is not complete yet, i know. But pretty darn close.

So here are my pics.

Calling all mil radio experts : What are the dimensions / measurements for the specific HP radio metal table holding the upper units ?

Robert, the generator that you are looking for are still around. Just take some time to search, put the feelers out and be patient. Lots of old engine enthusiasts seem to like them, check places like the Smoke Stak forum, ebay, kijiji etc. A quick check showed an older expired ad for one in PEI for sale as well as one that sold right here on MLU a few years ago.

Than-you Grant and thank-you Chris.

I will keep an eye out for the AC/DC 10LS-6 Onan 1 KW generator.



Cheers.


Robert

Actually they were never deployed. There were some major issues with the design and by the time things were fixed the army had committed to the British amplifier #2. Back in Canada there was no use for them either so they were sold off surplus post war.

There is one anomaly though. A Canadian war artist during the Korean conflict had painted a picture and in the background it appears to be the RF portion of the set. Nothing in the RCSigs history shows them being used over there but never say never.

Personally I think they're uber cool and having one in the back of your truck showcases a bit of Canadian technology.

Mine had no issues in putting it on the air. I ran it from 110V and no parts needed replacing.

Default No 19 HP set for wireless 5 truck

Good morning,

Here is a picture of the 19 HP set that I have highjacked from fellow member Geoff T.

This setup is as it would be installed in the box of the wire-5 truck with 2K1 box/ body .

The sets were used in the wire 5 box at least in Canada both during and after the war and Korea.

The NWE period historical correctness is not my goal , to celebrate Canadian military history and the sacrifice of those who served is .

There was training going on with these sets in Canada while the Canadian contingent was fighting bloody hard and well in NWE.

In my mind , that makes it period correct.

And as you say it is way up there in the ''coolness factor ''.

Cheers and thank you for adding to the discussion.
