    Re: WLA Bonding Strap For radio Suppression System

    I'm missing the strap (1743-42M) between crankcase, frame and coil.
    One could argue it's just there to ground every major component properly, but without a good ground any radiosuppression is futile..(that much I do understand).
    Besides that, only the 42WLA got it, not the earlier types

    Crap !!! I forgot to list that strap. It would be to difficult to take a clear photo of the nos one on my wla since it is a three terminal type braided strap. A decent reproduction one can be found here though. http://www.motorcycleharness.com/sto...&productId=206 . I think I remember getting my nos one from Larry Elias in The Netherlands. You might also try Dave at Wayback Wheels in New Hampshire.

    I went ahead and added that strap to the list on the previous page.

    Paps, The only thing I see you are missing is an ARCOM. That is an Army Commendation Medal. If a Motor Pool Sergeant were to fabricate such a device and it proved so effective that other systems (in this case motorcycles) were retrofitted, then his Platoon Leader should have submitted his name for an ARCOM. I have two. You can have one of mine.

    Great Job on the WLA.

    Thanks Fabe !!! I was considering posting WLA radio usage during WWII in a new topic. Though there is very little mil spec paperwork, which was not destroyed since WWII, to authenticate WLA radio usage, there were in fact many WLA's fitted with radios.The SRC 510 radio was the intended use of the military. That is why Harley Davidson designed the luggage rack use on WLA's. The Harley Davidson design of the luggage rack was not for luggage use at all. It was for mounting the SRC 510 radio. The military mounted the SRC 510 radio but they also mounted other radios as well. The military not only used the so called luggage rack as a radio mount platform for the intended use of the SRC 510 radio, but they also incorporated their own radio mounting on other areas of the WLA for similar radio models. It all comes down to military choice of radios that were needed at the time.

    I found a good pic of the #1743-42M strap and added it to the list of other radio suppression parts pics.

    I have several ground straps, condenser wires, etc, from WLA wiring harnesses that I will never use if anyone needs such a thing.
