    How do you torque the crank bolt properly?

    10.9 bolt x M16 max torque is somewhere around 250 ft. lbs. Here is a link to chart in Nm.

    Towing an Off Road / Overland FMTV

    I don't know much about the new LMTV beyond what I read here in the forums and online. What are the big capability improvements they have over an M35A2? I am guessing it starts with: - equal carrying capacity - power steering - better turning radius - goes faster on the road - maybe better fuel...

    Stuck M936

    I believe it is just a term. The front wheel drive on a deuce the actuating lever is labeled IN/OUT. In meaning front wheel drive is engaged.

    Which tractors were used by the Air Force to pull nuclear missiles?

    Thanks to this I had to read all about just what a tokamak is and how one came to NJ...

    Wrecker power divider propeller shaft CV joint failure.

    I wonder if a place like this could rebuild it. The Driveline Shop Had a 1990 Audi V8 which needed the driveshaft and CV joints rebuilt a ways back. This place did it no problem. That was an oddball car. Could be worth a call I guess.

    Stuck high idle?

    Looks like an M35A3 which has a different engine. Totally different animal. Has to be a ton of info on that one here all over. It is a CAT 3116 I believe.

    Hauling a m274 in Tacoma pickup bed

    Might fit in a 5' x 9' U-Haul motorcycle trailer. Cheap to rent I do it for motorcyles. Will likely have to plan a round trip with it though. Dimensions here

    2-1/2 ton Rockwell case half

    Wow thanks for the explanation. Makes more sense now. Learned something. Gringeltaube again was way ahead of the rest of us. Hope someone has what you need.

    2-1/2 ton Rockwell case half

    I have a whole center chunk. One of the spacers broke at some point in the past. The rest seems good. I wasn't about to press it apart to replace the spacer. No real use for it if the parts you need are in it. I stole the pinions ends off of it.

    Chambersburg Pickup, Do they allow van trailers?

    I had two skids of tires and a lifting truck brought out of there this year. All arrived on a standard closed trailer. I swear someone said YRC was leaving a trailer there for LTL.

    video of a deuce with air brakes

    Cost must have been the driver. The 5 ton from the same period had air brakes right? They must have decided the smaller truck did not need the braking system of the larger which likely cost more to install. This system is simple and has fewer components perhaps.
