    Jerky Zerk!

    I have a grease fitting on my front right rear shackle (the upper one) that will not allow grease to go in. I suspect this thing is seizing and I get a loud thump noise going over bumps. Anyone dealt with sticky shackles before?

    LMTV A0 interior door handle project

    Did and search and found nothing on this, so here goes. I finally had enough of the funky aluminum paddle we use to open our doors from the inside. Don't laugh, but I spent hours looking at every Dorman plastic door handle in the online catalog, and found very little possibilities. My German...

    LMTV Cab Suspension Airbags Alternative

    Yes, that system is well engineered if not pricey at $1,000 ea. That being said, it looks great and all parts easily replaced. The stock used bags that do show up are listed at premium prices, and appear to have be unavailable from what I read. Pointman

    FMTV LMTV Tire balancing?

    As an update, Mr. Filner has a video episode on YouTube where he used 40oz of antifreeze in each wheel to achieve positive results. He's pretty resourceful and this may be something to consider. Pointman

    Anyone swap out their steering wheel?

    Progress! After meeting with my new local fabricator, my adapter project is finally moving forward. I expect it back in two weeks and then we can mount up my 18" Forever Sharp steering wheel shown in previous posts. I also found this on Pintrest in regards to spline sizing on steering shafts...

    Ether start in the FMTV

    A short 2 second blast of starting fluid in the air filter, and mine starts right up -7 deg in Wyoming is the coldest it has seen. I still plan to get my injection working as this is what it came with.. Pointman

    m1078 to A1 driveshaft parts source

    As part of my drive-line upgrades leading up to the 3.07 gear swap , I did replace my front prop shaft with 4" unit I found at Eastern Surplus. (I still have the 3" if anyone needs a rebuild-able core.) My drive-line expert in Sparks re-balanced both my front and rear and replaced the splines on...
