    Jeepsinker's M35A2 6BT Cummins swap ( pics and videos)

    The 6BT is a great engine. Had one in a Dodge Pick-up but is too fussy about fuel quality. Been thinking about a 6 cyclinder CAT of some sort. What do you suggest? Thanks

    M35 Cargo Cover Question

    Right now I am using acorn nuts for a quick fix but eventually intend to go to a 'T' nut (the kind without prongs). Might have to oversize the holes in the metal but should completely eliminate any chance of rubbing after grinding off bolt's excess thread. Good luck.

    Custom wheels - Problem, questions, help.

    Those look nice but I need them in 20" for the NDT's and they must work with tubes .

    Custom wheels - Problem, questions, help.

    Good idea! I, too, am looking for a couple of affordable solid wheels for my 9:00 x 20's to use on the front end of my deuce. It's getting harder to find shops that will patch the lock ring wheels so we need spares at least for the front until we find someone when on the road who will change...

    The tire you show looks interesting. What is the tread width? How well do you think they will wear compared to the 9:00 x 20 NDC's? Thanks

    Cutting down water heater box for in cab mount

    Great idea. Recirculating the cab air should help a lot. I just insulated the insides of the box which helps some and is easy. I may try insulating the two water hoses, too.

    Grooved piston top problem.

    Four of the six LDT-465 pistons have various sized grooves at the lip of their cups. Anyone have an idea the cause of this? Is it fixable or must piston be replaced? Seems injectors' spray is not getting into cups properly. Is there a way to correct this? Any ideas where I can get new...

    Deuce Rear Hub Runs Hot

    Sometimes if the cork plug is missing or leaking rear end gear oil will get mixed in the wheel bearings and wash out the grease. Make sure cork plug is OK and don't fill the rear end too full; maybe about an inch below fill hole. Also, check axle pressure relief to make sure it is clear.

    Deuce boarding ladder stowage M35A2

    I mounted mine under the bed on left side on my M36A2. I felt the spare tire and pioneer rack aren't as important so removed them. I only carry the spare on long trips. Obviously, difficult choices are necessary. This may not work on M35's. Good luck.

    New owner of a M36

    Bob, Are you happy with the paint you used? If so what brand and part number was it and where did you get it? Thanks for your help, Orren

    New owner of a M36

    Bob, Great looking truck. I have a M36A2 in woodland camo with a tan top. Maybe we could trade tops? Would rather have the woodland camo top but couldn't find one so had to settle with the tan. Are you interested? Any ideas to make it happen? Thanks, Orren

    Do you have any ideas on cause of fuel diluted oil even with fuel compensator removed?

    What's missing in pic, plug? no plug?

    I leave mine plugged since I don't relish trying to put plug in when under water. BUT, I do check it for accumulated oil which has not happened for more than a tablespoon. If I think it starts to get too much oil in bell housing I will then leave plug out until leak is fixed.

    preventable rear suspension failure

    Rusty, It looks like in some pictures that grease squeezes out back end and relief valve shouldn't be necessary. With just the cap zerk installed and the plug in the bottom I would think grease would work its way all around OK. Your thoughts?
