    Changing the Air Compressor belt

    Yeah, I'm not so good on spinning the engine to tighten the pulley. Get that bit + shaped wrench or borrow from a friend and I used a big vice grip to hold the back of the pulley. You don't want to over tighten the belt. I allow about 1/2" of deflection when I push with one hand on the belt.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Jackalope? I got the limit this year just west of Keller Texas. I should post pictures of my biggest at 6lbs with a 10 point rack.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    What did I do recently? I towed a Five Ton home from the depot for a friend. His brakes didn't work, so I couldn't hook up his to mine, so we went at no more than 15 MPH on surface streets about 5 miles (lucky he lived close!) to his house. Everybody thought we were current military so no one...

    Restoration of my M35A2

    here's a quick clue for the top. buy a 5 ton top and have an upholstery shop cut it down. A 5 ton bed is a 2.5 ton bed extended. I bought a 5 ton CANVAS top from SaturnSurplus.com for $200 and paid $80 to have it cut down. It looks awesome and gives me the Vietnam era look I'm looking for. I'll...

    Weird tail light problem

    New weirdness with my tail light issue. On Saturday I removed the turn signal switch assembly from the steering column, took it apart and cleaned the contacts with 400 grit sandpaper. I reinstalled it and, voila'! the right turn signal works! However, now the left one doesn't? WTF??? I took it...

    Weird tail light problem

    Thanks SoundGuy. I'll see about trying that next weekend when I can get back to it. A little side info: when I was returning the truck to the Vintage Flying Museum hangar where she lives (Meacham Field, Fort Worth TX) I discovered that straight line winds had destroyed two hangars inside the...

    Changing the Air Compressor belt

    I didn't find any posts that said what I'm going to say, so I'll post away! BlueDeuce and I changed the air compressor belt on my '79 AMG M35A2 today. BlueDeuce brought the air compressor tools he bought from someone on the forums. The tool with the big cross on it for the front of the...

    Weird tail light problem

    OK. BlueDeuce and I went to the hangar today and worked on the truck. We replaced the compressor belt, but I'll post that on a different thread. We checked about everything we could on the tail light issue. He and I both verified that we are seeing 24 volts (pulsing) with the flasher on...

    Found 24v bulbs for civilion fogs

    Minor point. 100 WATT, not 100 AMP. There's a small difference:)
