Only weird thing so far is a strange plug in on the side. Made for big amperage. Three pole. Have not been able to inspect the interior yet as the doors are rusted shut.

Don't use PB Blaster, it's in a yellow can. Use Aero Kroil, comes in an ORANGE can. Kroil opened doors for me. Here is the electrical plug in, probably for jump start when cold.

Yes, that is one of the jumpstart/salvage/battery connections found on old mil equipment. I will see if I still have the other end.

Aircraft external power plug. 28 volts DC. Probably used that because it was laying around.

No, that was a fairly common item for AF equipment. Allowed ground power units to jump, charge etc. Course, that also may lead one to surmise the power system in that tucker is 24 volt.

The other one from that era is a round two pin. Also 24 volt, but without the interlock pin.

Kroil is the best and only stuff I use too. Heck, spray some on the tracks and motor and I bet she starts right up so you can drive her around the block in the morning.

That red plug looks to be the exact right one. The four British Trans Antarctic Expedition Tuckers were 24 volt system configuration. Worked for the South Pole, maybe reverse POLARITY for the North Pole.

so, the north pole is negative and the south pole it positive??? or bi-polar with reverse polarity
