    Here is a screen shot taken from a video of my Kt-74 in direct sunlight ..even with all the glare it is quite readable
  10. The bearings on the Cleveland wheels ( installed on Wipline Amphibious floats)were standard p/no and not of any special design.Typically we would extend the gear while approaching a beach we weren't familiar with to protect the float bottoms from hidden stumps.We operated a lot off of muddy rivers but never salt.We were surprised how much water intrusion they tolerated with the right grease.

    Vacuum Pump replacement

    The problem is the stc for your G500...It specifys what is an aceptible backup.I pulled my entire vac system and installed a mid continent life saver.If you end up replacing pump ,I have one or two low time pumps available
  12. When I had the Husky on Amphibs ,the wheels and bearing were constantly being submerged...we packed bearings using Boat trailer Marine grease...didn't really have to repack bearings more than once a year ,but they generally began to show water damage after 3 or 4 years and were replaced
