    Trailer Mounted CTMGSA-15 generator

    Thanks to those who helped me with info to get this runnning. I was able to get it fired up. I'm in the process of adding a Solargizer to keep it ready to use. I still need to gather the fuel filters and change those, but it is running well. As I work on it some more I will add more pictures.

    Hunter H1 heater engine and shelter USAF

    Hello I picked up a small trailer mounted H1 heater this summer. I believe it was an air force unit used to preheat engines and shelters. It is NSN 4520-01-135-2770 P/N: 8227100 manufactured by Hunter back in 1983. It uses a single cylinder lister diesel engine to drive the burner unit...

    Trailer Mounted CTMGSA-15 generator

    I finally was able top pick up the generator. When I went over the first time we noticed someone there had ran into the coupler and it was not safe to tow. True to their word he repaired it so it functions well and I was able to pick it up. I've found Plan-B supply to be honest and a good group...

    Identify this generator traile AN/MJQ-32 Dual 3kw

    Identify this generator trailer AN/MJQ-32 Dual 3kw Hello I picked up an interesting trailer the other day. I've seen trailers with dual 3kw Mep-701 generators, but this one has a bunch of extra brackets mounted to it. Does anyone know what else was on the trailer as used by the military...

    Trailer Mounted CTMGSA-15 generator

    Hello I just won the auction on a nice looking ctmgsa-15 kw generator. I'm very excited to get it going. I've been looking around cannot find a manual on it. Could anyone please help? It looks like a great unit. I found one of the smaller 5kw ones a few years ago and really like it. Thanks to...

    My M1031 Contact Maintenance Truck project

    I've been out using the 1031 and just upgraded the go-light on top. I'm having a problem with the cab corner on the passenger side starting to rust, which got me looking into if there could be a leak in the roof. I found the dome cover that goes on to protect the go light and decided to get it...

    My M1031 Contact Maintenance Truck project

    I was able to finally mount the rotary compressor in the truck. It came with a nice welded stand when I bought it, and it fit right above the generator. In the picture I still have the older blue air compressor, but I removed that to make room for the welder. It seems the truck never has quite...

    My M1031 Contact Maintenance Truck project

    I was tinkering with the woodward DPG governor control yesterday. I was adjusting some of the settings to see if I could stop it from shutting down the governor when the compressor stops and the lack of load causes the engine to rev up. I finally adjusted the %over-speed setting up about 10%...

    My M1031 Contact Maintenance Truck project

    Hello By original, do you mean the flood lights mounted to the wall? I had the same problem with no bulbs. I looked up at the tool load list in the technical manual and searched every bulb listed until I found the spare bulbs for the floodlight. The NSN is 6240-00-553-1881 which translates into...

    My M1031 Contact Maintenance Truck project

    Never mind on the Y vs. Delta wiring question. I had it correct the whole time. The compressor has a transformer to take the 3 phase and convert it to 120v (can't just use one phase to neutral because the compressor has just the 3 hots and a ground, no neutral). When I re-connected the...

    My M1031 Contact Maintenance Truck project

    It's been a couple years since I updated this thread, but my M1031 is still my favorite truck and I've made a few more upgrades. I've gotten the generator to work reliably and have been focusing on the air compressor and lights. I always seem to be working on stuff when it gets dark and the box...

    Utah HMMWV recovery, Helmet Hard top install, and build.

    I finally got tired of all the room the spare tire used inside the back of the truck. I found a great deal on a rhino tire carrier locally. He had everything but the wrench / tool and the clips to secure it. I had to upgrade to 1/2" longer bolts to get it to fit. I also didn't see where anyone...

    Utah HMMWV recovery, Helmet Hard top install, and build.

    I was looking at the rifle mounts for the HMMWV. They look like they would make it even less comfortable to ride in. Since I have the hard top I got thinking about a way to put some mounts in the back. The kids love going out and shooting their BB guns and I've gotten tired of them banging...

    Utah HMMWV recovery, Helmet Hard top install, and build.

    I too was a little concerned about inhibiting the flow through the radiator stack at first. I'll try driving around with the A/C off and see if the engine seems to get hotter. As it stands now when the A/C is on the engine fan runs much less, so I guess they do push a lot of air. I might just...

    Utah HMMWV recovery, Helmet Hard top install, and build.

    I got around to working on the Red dot AC unit this week. I was waiting on the hoses, I had already gathered everything else by going through the packing list that comes with the kit and searching for the part numbers. I have a helmet hard top and didn't want to mount the red dot condenser up on...
