    Trailer ID help

    I have already asked for pics of it. Looks civilian to me the more I see of it. I saw one kinda like this with an engineer company in Iraq, but it easily could have been a local purchase for a specific purpose. I remember thinking the mobile home style rims didn't look right on a military trailer

    AM/FM antenna advice

    Thanks Augi. My knowledge of broadcast reception antennas is very limited, and when I went to see my google it was one contradiction after another from the different articles. As far as Ham antennas go I have built multiple of them over the years. I believe I have my plan of attack now lol

    AM/FM antenna advice

    Augi, The broadcast receiver coax requires a signal and ground same as any other coax correct? So If I made the duke replica out of metal and connected the center wire to it, I would have to insulate it from ground, and connect the out case/ground of the coax to ground correct? Or am I over...

    AM/FM antenna advice

    OK before anyone has a fit I used the search option and there is alot of good info on converting military whip antennas to am fm, but thats not exactly what I have in mind. Currently on both my M998 and M35a2 I am running a 3916 base with 102" whip for CB and a harris 3183 for 2m 70cm Ham use...

    Leaking rear main, Drive it home or not?

    Ok all sorry for the slow update, but the weather and most other things decided to get in the way this week. The wife and I went after the truck yesterday. It showed 2 quarts low on engine oil and the tranny was exactly where it should be. So I removed the inspection cover, used 2 cans of brake...

    Leaking rear main, Drive it home or not?

    Ok everyone thank you all for the input and thoughts. The wife and I will be taking the ride up there in the morning with extra oil both engine and gear (truck already has an extra gallon of each in the bed) plus a case of brake clean. The plan is to check it over, clean the clutch and drive her...

    Leaking rear main, Drive it home or not?

    Roger that will do. I checked the engine oil after it had been shut off for 15 minutes or so and it was slightly high which I attribute to drain down as I was outside the ideal checking window. It looked clean and didn't smell of fuel or show any signs of water so I don't think there is any...

    Leaking rear main, Drive it home or not?

    I am not. I know the oil pressure didn't drop at all while it leaked. It was dripping out like **** though. Whats the fix for the input shaft issue? If I remember right there isnt a seal on those, they are supposed to push the oil back towards the trans correct?

    Leaking rear main, Drive it home or not?

    I remember on active duty running one about 100 miles that way because we already had a 5 ton hanging on the Wrecker. We pulled the inspection cover (think we left it off, but that's neither here nor there lol) sprayed a couple cans of brake clean on the clutch disk added some oil, and ran till...
