    MV of the year 2019

    Going into this poll, my truck deserves a better picture. General Nonsense replaced his older brother, the Deuce in Service and later on my 2 acres. We have many traditions with old green iron and one of mine is taking a 6X6 truck to get the Christmas Tree each year. Happy New Years to all who...

    CUCV wanted in south Georgia

    I have a nice one that you can look over in Leesburg but it's not for sale. Your profile says you're in Tifton so it's not a long drive and even though there is no truck for sale, I'm easy to get along with so you might make a friend.

    Air pressure

    I have an FMTV air governor on my M923 thanks to SwampDonkey and it builds to 145 and drops to about 135 after purging. Cut in is around 110 or so. It's adjustable.

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    You were at the Rally? Aside from Saturday getting rained out I guess I missed you. Sure hate that.

    Today was load-out day, Welder1 and I should be on ground Thursday around lunchtime.

    Official 2019 Steel Soldiers Georgia Rally (19SSGR) - Georgia Military Vehicle Rally

    This will be year 9 for me. I know getting old sucks but I even came in 2017 on crutches after breaking my left foot. I didn't have a smartphone then or else I would post a picture of crutches and bags on the passenger seat of my M923. I'm ready to roll early in the morning to a different event...

    2019 Georgia Military Vehicle Rally buy-sell-trade

    I've got the shackles and t-bolts that I promised loaded. Gotta load the HMMWV Turbo Doghouse Covers and I should be good on what I committed to bring. I'm picking up an M802A generator for a member on Monday so hopefully Coffey1 will help me move that from my 5 ton to a trailer with his M1089.

    M923A1 Problems after deep fording

    I hate that you have a bent connecting rod but that was my first worry. You're pictures of your teardown confirmed that but it looks like you're on your way to greener pastures Sir. As cool as it would be to swap a Big Cam, I'd fix what you have. Simp is Awesome and runs from coast to coast...

    M1102 Trailer Value?

    They tow fine behind a CUCV Truck. I'm surprised reading these prices as mine was $360 a few years ago at auction.

    2019 Georgia Military Vehicle Rally buy-sell-trade

    If it's too big, I can get it to Leesburg, Ga for free! My 5 ton has a good cover so it'd be out of the weather.

    M923A1 Problems after deep fording

    It is possible that you lifted a head gasket. You need to do a pressure test on the cooling system to see if it's leaking down but if it's pushing the coolant out of the tank when running and getting hot, not good. Diesels run very small combustion chambers so if it "did" ingest water it may...

    1crook, Dawn, I'm looking forward to giving you a hug, no charge. Lee and the boys will be in late Friday night but they're coming to collect Saturday!
