    M60 Not Starting

    How does one fix that rack issue? Does the power plant have to be out of the tank to access the pump?

    Today the truck got my full attention. I replaced a few jive ass looking chop jobs and tightened the battery connections. I bumped the starter terminals and the starter began to engage... The 24 volts are there all that is needed is to ground the system. There isn't however a magnetic starter...

    No Electrical When Ignition Switch is On

    Yeah... I've heard of in line fuses making it into some of the wiring. Thankfully there doesn't appear to be any other than a lighter plug that's installed. Where's the solenoid? On top of the starter? As for the ground, it appears to be secure. I'm liking the bad switch theory. That is the...

    Preppers/ BOBag Portable Radio

    Gents, Lookin for a portable world type radio in case of a SHTF/Zombie apocalypse sorta thing. Receive only is fine, performance and cost are the only factors. Lets keep it under $175. Ive seen a ton on Fleabay and know Grundig and Yaesu... the rest seem sketchy.

    Axle Hub Bearing... need a diagram

    Camo, my 1008 does something similar. Steering alignment is out of whack until you make a hard left or right and then theres a sudden jerk and everything is better. Im guessing you have 2 issues... 1 is you need to regrease/pack your front hubs. 2 your (and mine) steering box may need to be...
