    First start up of MEP-003

    And if it didn't the engine was toast anyway so nothing harmed. Plus, in that scenario it was not the private citizen with limited access to obsolete parts that was working on it. If it was toast the Government just tossed it and put a new on on line.

    I, nor anyone else, even asked how many hours were on this unit. You really do not want to loosen up a whole bunch of crap in the engine all at once because it is just going to circulate through the bearings and clog the filter. All modern oils have a good detergent package in them and they did...

    M151 Mine detection vehicle.

    In the written description of the vehicle it tells you that if a mine is found it automatically declutches and brakes the vehicle so a technician can then disarm the mine. It is a DETECTOR, not a clearing unit like a flail that sets them off. The vehicle is most likely put in first gear before...

    Drain the oil and fill it with quality 15W40 diesel motor oil. I have no idea why anyone would want to run ATF in a diesel that has not run for years and is going to start at full rpm!!! Also drain any old fuel out and clean all the fuel filters and out in clean fuel. Personally I would pull out...

    Steel Soldiers migration 12/9/19

    Nope, I realized that for some reason I was now watching 23 PAGES!!!! instead of just four or five threads so I selected all then just unchecked the five I wanted to watch. It still has me watching all of them. It is not a real big problem since most are long dead threads but I am getting a lot...

    Well I selected all the ones I no longer wanted to watch and went to the drop down and selected that choice and clicked on it and it did nothing. All still there. I will try again.

    Steel Soldiers migration 12/9/19

    How do I select threads I no longer want to watch in the watched threads? The little box is marked "e-mail" but I selected them anyway and at the bottom I selected stop watching and it shows I am still watching 15 threads. And climbing! it is going back to threads I looked at 4 years ago. I only...

    Allison M916 + Mk48 Cab = 6x6 "FEMTT"

    Soni, Good to hear from you and thankful that your event did not take you away from here. I have had one or two of these "Events" both of my own making and medical and they do tend to cause you to reevaluate how you do things. Whatever your decisions I, and I am sure the rest of us here, will...

    Steel Soldiers migration 12/9/19

    And another site takes the plunge! One of my motorcycle sites just went to what looks like this same setup. They have lost half their people due to the change being so drastic and the loss of a lot of the old services. I hope that does not happen here. I don't really like the new look but since...

    Mess tent and weather forum?

    Where did the mess tent and the weather forum go? Gone? It has been in my frequently looked at pages for years and I check it every day and I went here just now and it is gone. I just looked at it earlier.
