    No start and a big mess up with batteries

    I was thinking I needed to go from Pos and Neg like the main cables run. For some reason I was thinking by only running to the Pos of 1 battery with the orange wire, I would only have 12v. Now I see how I messed it all up looking at the pic. The main cables are making the 24v so I just...

    No start and a big mess up with batteries

    I'll try to explain myself a little better. I am using pics found online (except for my melted battery pic :)) Here is another pic to try and show how I hooked things up. There are 3 main wires going to the battery box from the truck. #1 is marked with a tag saying Pos. The #2 wire is a...

    No start and a big mess up with batteries

    I think I can get some fuel filters locally through Napa. They are priced much lower then what I found online. I am a little lost as I am seeing posts referring to gaskets with wix or napa part numbers (using the sticky post with part reference numbers). The filters are supposed to come with...

    No start and a big mess up with batteries

    Well I did a mess-up yesterday. Trying to get my 1971 Kaiser M35A2 to try and start. My M35A2 has not run in a few years. It always started fine until it just stopped firing. We suspected bad fuel. I was hand pumping the tank to remove the fuel and then discovered the tank has a drain...

    My new M35A2

    Thank you everyone. :) I’m happy finally getting a troop carrier deuce. I joked with my sister about “The green madness”. I have a blue one and a tan one so I officially don’t have the green madness yet. ;) My M27A2 is titled as a 10 ton because the worker that was helping me...

    My new M35A2

    My new deuce. So I finally got a M35A2 after years of wanting one. (I settled on a M275A2 years ago because I couldn’t find one) So now I have 2 deuces, a genset trailer, a 10kw generator, and a Cushman Airborne clone. Yay me.:clinto: It was on a Craigslist ad and about 3 counties...

    My failed parade attempt

    I should look for another one. I had 2 trailers and the one I sold and a crank handle and 2 metal wheels on the jack. That would be so much easier then this large wheel. I actually was thinking of using those adapters but they were not tall enough. The receiver on the truck was very low to...

    My failed parade attempt

    So I tried to be in a local parade but failed. I wanted to use my cannons on the genset trailer but had to dig out the cannons from my large storage unit. It has taken a few weeks to get things together. I had to cut off my trailer hitch and weld it up much higher to fit the trailer height. We...

    Making a M103A3 into a dump trailer

    I’m thinking about making my M103A3 genset trailer into a dump bed using the ram from a fold under lift gate. I have been looking online on how to do it and most dumps use a scissor hoist. To me it looks like there would be extreme force required to start the bed moving up based on the scissor...

    Help ID 2 trailers Please

    Thank you for the answer. :mrgreen: Now if I am looking at it correctly, the front rims of a deuce should be the same as what is on the trailers. Or is the bolt pattern different on the trailer hubs? If their the same, I could take my front wheels off and use those to get one home. :jumpin:

    Help ID 2 trailers Please

    Hello all, I haven't posted in a long time but I need some help. I just won 2 trailers and I am not sure what their designation is. I am lost as to what these trailers "M" numbers are. Are they M103a2, or M116a2 ??? These have a big wheel for the landing leg and are 1/4 ton trailers...
