    Stand guard light towers

    No I don’t. I bought all new plugs and reworked them, made my own cords, now I just need to figure what I want to use as a power source. I’m glad I bought all new amphenol connectors, lot better quality and looks better.

    Stand guard light towers

    If anybody gets a chance to pick these up, I would recommend it. They are nice kits. Work extremely well for area lighting on flood or work lights on spot, really super bright!!! I was playing with one I rigged up by poking wires in the holes in the connector last night, had it out in the yard...

    Stand guard light towers

    I bought some off these Stand guard light towers. They have a remote control unit. They have a spotlight, floodlight, and an I/R floodlight. I rigged one up and they are super bright! I have complete kits but they are all missing the main power cords. Was wondering if anyone on here might know...

    Height reduced M939

    How tall is your door and what kind of floor do you have? I can get my A2 through my 9' door by cheating. And don't forget about the tire crane. I have to take that and the exhaust tip off. Half of my shop has a lime floor, so I dug a little out on the inside and ramped down from the door and...

    A big thanks to Floridianson

    A big thanks is owed to Floridianson because he donated a couple of parts to a local museum here in Illinois. His donation is greatly appreciated! Hopefully someday I will get the chance to repay the favor.

    Ft. Riley recovery and a special thanks to Glen at BFR Metals

    Thanks guys. I was looking for the elusive pressure switch on the air tanks for the ctis. I cant seem to find one. That would be a haul for me for a two minute job for a part that would fit in the palm of my hand. I'm trying to think of anything else I might need. Anybody near there that might...

    CTIS PCU Chattering Then Faults

    Two of mine checked good. In the high range. One was in the lower part of the range. I was out of ideas so I went and replaced it and it fixed my problem.

    CTIS PCU Chattering Then Faults

    Sounds kinda like what mine was doing. I ended up replacing a solenoid and it fixed the problem. If you do a search on here there is a thread on how to check the solenoids and what kind of solenoids to get. They are easy to replace and they are not expensive. I paid less then 20 bucks for three...

    Another CTIS Problem!!!!

    I ended up changing out the solenoids after a parts source on here mysteriously ran out of the PCU's once they realized they had been selling them for the wrong price and giving me the run around. I changed them with the Peter Pauls that were listed on another thread and it fixed the problem...

    Another CTIS Problem!!!!

    Ok I went back out and this is what I discovered, it cycles pretty fast, I took the line off that goes to the wheels and you could not hold your finger over the line each time it cycled. Plenty of air, way more than the 12psi check. It also blows air out the whole on the side of the cover that...

    Another CTIS Problem!!!!

    Tires are up. The system worked fine for about a year so I know what it sounds like when its working properly. I have left it sit for a while and eventually it just stops. But the light stays flashing.

    Another CTIS Problem!!!!

    I have read other posts. I have read the TM's. I've read the CTIS manual and none of them have the problem that I'm having. I've tracked air lines, checked valves and I have no clue. When you get the system up to pressure the PCU valve just starts making a constant pfft pfft pfft pfft sound. The...
