This is an older restoration that has recently been extensively rebuilt mechanically by an experienced Mighty Mite mechanic / owner. Everything on this machine is 100% operational including the horn, wipers, lighting and the important oil temperature and oil pressure warning lights. This past Memorial Day I had this machine out for a 60+ mile drive in 90+ degree temperatures with no issues. You will be hard pressed to find a Mighty Mite that has had this amount of comprehensive service done to it at a comparable price. What has been done to this vehicle is common and necessary for all Mighty Mites but rarely done. Tires pictured on the machine are not included. The vehicle now has correct load range B non-directionals installed.
The following items have been rebuilt, corrected and attended too:
New batteries October 2018
Nice paint, new markings May 2017, markings are painted on, they are not decals.
New wheel cylinders.
New master cylinder.
DOT 5 silicone brake fluid.
Rebuilt cylinder heads including new valves.
Replaced piston rings.
Replaced clutch & pressure plate including resurfacing the flywheel.
New rear main seal.
Transmission and transfercase were rebuilt including new seals, bearings and transmission synchronizers.
Transmission shift crisply.
Transfercase shifts easily.
Upgraded solid transfercase counter shaft.
Fuel tank removed, cleaned and lined by Tank Renu.
Rebuilt fuel pump.
New and correct plug wires.
New Vintage Wiring of Main front wiring harness.
New steering column tube. The old tube was bent and dented, this is a very common issue with Mighty Mites.
Reproduction vinyl seat covers are in excellent condition with no rips or tears.
CV boots are in good condition as are the transfercase and transmission shifter boots.
Windshield glass free of cracks and scratches.
New air cleaner to carburetor hose. This hose is commonly needing replacing or has been replaced with a “will fit” tube that looks less than great.
New seal for steering box sector shaft.
Steering is tight.
New gear lube in all gear boxes 2017, this includes the front and rear differentials including adding the special limited-slip friction modifier additive for the limited slip clutch packs.
New oil temperature switch.
New drive shaft u-joints.
Correct M422A1 windshield frame. Many Mighty Mites have the M38A1 windshield frames on them, there is a difference!
All lifting and tie down points swivel as designed including the rear swinging pintle hitch. On virtually all Mighty Mites these unique lifting, tie down and towing points are seized and don’t function as they should.
Rare and difficult to find correct fire extinguisher pictured included.
Tires pictured on the machine are not included. Vehicle now has correct load range B non-directionals installed.
