    FLU 419 Cab Tilt & Throttle linkage

    Does tilting the cab require disconnecting the throttle linkage ? Unless I'm just missing it, the throttle linkage is not addressed in either the equipment conditions or steps found in the TM.

    Door removal / hinge pins FLU419

    It turns out that all 4 of my door hinge pins were broken. The pins were seized in both the upper (door side) and lower (cab side). With the hinges clean/ well lubricated the doors can be removed leaving the hinge pins in the cab side of the hinge.

    Door removal / hinge pins FLU419

    I need to replace my broken door hinge pins and need to know the correct orientation for the replacements. When the door is removed, does the pin stay with the door, or the body side of the hinge?

    My truck was missing the front loader remote switch when I got it. I found one on eBay that matches the nsn but is black instead of white. I installed it & now I can raise/lower the front end loader from the backhoe operator’s position as intended.

    I haven’t made as much progress with the truck as I would like but I did find a m796 bolster trailer at a price I couldn’t pass up. I have a lot of work left to do before I feel comfortable towing with the floozy on the street. Fortunately for me steelsoldiers member glcaines snagged it for me...

    Time for some updates... After an extended stay at the hydraulic shop, all of the backhoe cylinders have been rebuilt and hoses have been replaced. Because they are more accessible, I decided to work through the front loader hydraulics as issues arise. In the first 10 minutes of use, the front...
