I have downloaded the manuals on this site to try to become more informed about my 1983 vintage M925 A0. I sure prefer paper over reading computer screens for manuals. Can anyone point me to the most appropriate manuals in paper bound form? I'd print them out, except they are over 900 or so pages.
The reason for wanting a 4 ton load was that this was my first trip using the truck and it had been sitting for years before I bought it. I wanted to make a trial run at the quarry and down my hill before loading up heavier.
Today I took Gomer (my 925 A0) converted with a reinforced dump bed to the quarry to pick up a partial load of dirty base for our construction project. (Our driveway to the house site is steep and gravel truck drivers in the area are boycotting our build because of the decent.} Anyway, I hope...
Just to follow up, the motor and crate combined weighed about 3,500# to 4,000#. My mini-ex couldn't handle it. I ended up paying a guy $70 who was delivering sheetrock to use his Moffet. It was rated at 6,000# and placed the motor nicely in the corner of the shop.
I appreciate the good advice. I didn’t know where to start. The first thing I need to do is find someone with a big skid steer with forks to get it out of the truck. I need to use the truck pretty bad.
I hope the pics are helpful. If there are specific shots to help identify it, please let me know. I‘m pretty sure I will sell it, and cheap. I just need to have a mechanic check out the motor in the truck to ensure the sounds I’m hearing are normal and I won’t need the crate motor any time soon...
Any idea what to do with it. I need to get it out of the back of the truck and would prefer not to store it? I don't really want to spend a lot to get it going or verified as a good engine. On the other hand, I'd hate to sell a good motor at scrap rates.
