    M923A2 CTIS Problem

    When I start the vehicle, it flashes HWY only for a few minutes until the first pressure check. Then it does the pressure check, I hear air noise briefly at the PCV, elephant noise in the back, then it goes to 5 flashing lights. I tried airing all the tires up to 75 psi manually. Still no...

    M923A2 CTIS Problem

    Great question for one of the designers of the system. My gut feeling is to avoid using lube to be on the safe side. Aside from maybe on parts you can directly apply it to and wipe away the excess. But it goes without saying, I'm only just starting to learn how this system works.

    M923A2 CTIS Problem

    I'm guessing this wheel valve is toast?

    M923A2 CTIS Problem

    This thread is awesome. Was able to at least rule out my low pressure switch as a problem. Symptoms: Truck flashes Hwy as normal on startup. Attempts to operate when pressure reaches 120 (or when I jumper pins A and B on that circuit). PCU in cab makes an operatey type noise and then I hear a...

    M925A2 Delco Style Alternator

    Sorry to beat a dead horse, but I'm about to do the changeover to a chinese 21SI clone on my 923a2. I know multiple people have said don't use wires 566 and 568 for anything on this alternator. However, the -10 says CIRCUIT 566 - Controls a relay in the protective control box that prevents...

    I am looking to get a M923A2 in CA and need to know how to register one.

    Its more than 25 years old, so looks like it. https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/wcm/connect/25ed8797-b74c-4aba-a717-3e8cdae51255/reg17a.pdf?MOD=AJPERES&CVID=

    Goodyear vs Michelin Beadlocks...why the caution in the -14 Tire tm?

    wire brushed, sanded off loose rust, blew off with air hose, and wiped down with acetone. 2 coats of por15 primed 2 coats of industral enamel the spray paint was probably overkill, but I didn't put por-15 over everything. mostly just directly to the rusted areas.

    Alternator over voltage

    When I got my m923a2 out of ft hood a few years ago, it was missing the alternator. I bought one of the alternators out of one of the other trucks in that same auction from the scrap yard that won them. And that one had a bad voltage regulator. I wound up buying the wrong voltage regulator...

    Goodyear vs Michelin Beadlocks...why the caution in the -14 Tire tm?

    5/8 lug style 3/4 lug style The 3/4 lug style looks like it would be a little more robust, just because it seems like there's a better chance of getting the o-ring to seat evenly than on the 5/8 style. Can't really slip down, since it's resting on that lip.

    Goodyear vs Michelin Beadlocks...why the caution in the -14 Tire tm?

    I've got a 5/16 o-ring that I bought brand new. Will probably use that, though it does look like it will take a bit more cranking down on the lug nuts to get the top half of the rim to snug down properly. Just laying a 5/16 o-ring on it and laying the top half of the rim on top, it does sit...

    Goodyear vs Michelin Beadlocks...why the caution in the -14 Tire tm?

    Speaking of differences... the 3/4 stud rim is a bit different on the inside vs the 5/8 stud rim. Instead of a shallow depression that the O-ring sits in like on the 5/8 stud rim, this 3/4 stud rim has a narrow lip that the O-ring sits on top of/against. When the top half of the rim is bolted...

    Goodyear vs Michelin Beadlocks...why the caution in the -14 Tire tm?

    The dead Michelin is on a 3/4 stud rim and the Goodyear I'm swapping to is on a 5/8 stud rim. So you might be onto something. Will know a little more when we have them both apart. I dropped everything off at a tractor dealership for them to break it all down. Shouldn't be any problem...

    Goodyear vs Michelin Beadlocks...why the caution in the -14 Tire tm?

    From page 2-49 of 9-2610-200-14 "Never install a Goodyear beadlock in a Michelin tire or a Michelin beadlock in aGoodyear tire. Damage to equipment may result if tire components of differentmanufacturers are interchanged." I'm only asking because I want to swap the Goodyear off of the rim it's...

    923a2 temps at different spots

    I don't trust those transmission oil temps. This was just with the vehicle stationary, in neutral.
