    Department of Defense Control Coming

    I'm still waiting for a decent reply but to date nothing. No more controls. No more calls. Calm before the storm?

    Flat tire??

    It costs 70$ in the USA to fix a flat tire?? Wow! We pay €25,00 to get a patch on an tubeless tire and I thought this was bad. Make some soapy water in spray bottle and spray the bead ( after you re inflate if) and other areas to see if there are bubbles.

    daimler benz m 1017a

    Hi Derek. If you google the manual in English there are a few companies selling them. You might look for a MB truck site and download for free. Ive had over 30 1017's of different years production and never saw one with winch. I have experience only with German army equipment. Maybe another...

    "How to get a HET in life..." - M1070 Acquisition thread

    I won't say no if one no cost shows up at my door! I love that big cat motor the new British version has.

    Which APC is Right for Me?

    The early versions has gasoline motor. The later had V8 Tatra diesel air cooled. Much better but thirsty.

    Pad photo. These are 432 pads. Each one has a stud attached to the pad and a lock nut fixing it to the link.

    Which APC is Right for Me?

    The pads can be removed one section at a time. Yes they do wear out when used on the road.
