    MI M36A2 W/Winch

    The M36A2 is the long bed / long wheelbase big brother of the M35A2 and is not a common version and very few of them came with a winch.

    Need some help on identifying some marks on M886

    You will not find the pattern for the M886, I believe they used the M725 ambulance pattern. Many years back someone on here did up a pattern for them. screen name of Macgyver I think.

    M880 5.2 smoke coming out of air breather inlet

    With the 727 trans the pump does not circulate fluid while in park. I will put mine in neutral for a minute before putting in gear. It helps the stall out. Also trans fluid level cannot be checked in park, must be in neutral.
