Trailer, 1/4-ton, 2-Wheel Telephone Cable Splicer M367 (Signal Corps Model K-38A) (G747)
The M367 Maintenance Trailer is a two-wheel general purpose carrier used as a Telephone Cable Splicer. The full nomenclature is Trailer, Maintenance: Telephone Cable Splicer, 1/4-Ton, 2-Wheel, M367. The trailer is identified by FSN 2330-215-4211.
When the jeeps of WW II were replaced by the M38 and M38A1 models, a new version of the K-38 trailer was needed to match the characteristics of the new jeeps. The 1/4-ton, 2-wheel cargo trailer M100 was equipped with telephone cable splicing tool boxes, creating a new trailer model first called the Signal corps Model K-38A. The designation was generalized to Trailer, 1/4-ton, 2-Wheel Telephone Cable Splicer M367.
The dimensions and other tabulated data of the M367 Telephone Cable Splicer Trailer are the same as for the M-100 Cargo Trailer.
The M367 Cable Splicer trailer is included in the manuals for the M-100 Trailer. The modern format manual is TM 9-2330-201-14. That manual supersedes the 1950s vintage TM 9-871A was well ORD 7 SNL G-747, ORD 8 SNL G-747 and ORD 9 SNL G-747.
