    Someone hit my truck!!

    I got rear ended in my deuce, it was parked at the time. I bent one axle and broke a dog bone, and bent two more. The inter axle was ok. Insurance was ok with it. I fixed the truck at a heavy truck shop as the other guys insurance paid for it. I would request that both rear axles get fully...

    low sulphur content diesel fuel question

    I throw in a QT of marvel mistery oil and a QT of two cycle oil when I fill up. No issues with the multi-fuel. I did have some algae bloom in my tank. It had been sitting for almost a year in the FL sun. Thank god I did a spin on primary conversion. I pumped the tank out, ran it through a 10...

    S-280 Shelter to camper Rebuild

    I found it on steel soldiers of course... I know the project has been sitting for quite some time, but I had quite a few changes in my life.

    I'm 19 and seriously considering buying a deuce, am I crazy?

    Being relitively new to the hobby, but driving one for work sometimes during hurricanes, I can say they are FUN to drive but absolutely positively demand your FULL attention and RESPECT while driving. Not only for the operator, but to avoid all the stupid things 4 wheelers (cars and smaller...

    Non Winch Offroad Recovery

    Yep, works like a winch drum... I have never done it, but it IS in the manual. I have used the ground anchor system, that DOES work, depending on soil. Bring extra cable and rope!

    Truck Starts Crappy after replacing Flame heater

    I am new to the Deuce, but learning much every time I work on it. I have done a fuel line and a full fuel system cleaning including filters and tank. Each time I drained the system to work on it I later had to purge the system. This is covered in the TMs, but... the easy way is as follows...

    Home Made Fording Kit?

    I seriously hope you get LOTS of seal kits for the axles and like doing LOTS of maintaince. I look at the fording kits as an if I really really have to, not for fun, because that ammount of wrench turning and degreasing SUCKS, but to each his own... I will enjoy keeping an eye on this thread...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Spin on primary filter, with the assistance of Darkstar, lots of gojo, and one pissed off wife. Also replaced the secondary and final filters, left those as canister type. Spin on went on without a hitch - somewhat - except for the diesel shower. While the fuel system was empty, as I...
