    Need to haul heavy load in central WA; anybody wanting to help?

    I drove up to the ski hill last weekend and saw a nice looking M923 or M925 about a mile up Halverson canyon road. I don't know who it is (maybe one of you guys?) but he has a big 6x6...

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    M800 series lube?

    When I finally drain my tranny I'll probably use what Spicer recommends for it. The military wanted a common oil between gear cases & axles but heavy weight GO (gear oil) may not perform as well in the tranny compared to say a 50 wt drivetrain oil.

    I put the fuel tank stencil on positioned so I could paint the letters with all one color. The 4-row of text version would have missed the tank strap i think.

    Dang, that sucks. If you feel like rolling the dice, Cummins has their new Advanced Combat Engine out on the market...(1000 HP, 14.3L) Cummins ACE

    M51 removing brake drum

    If you're wanting a hubhelper to go along with the rest of your project I still have 2 of the 5-ton versions left. Check them out here: HubHelpers

    Simp's M915A1 Build Thread

    At first glance that lamp pole looks like dual stacks!

    New pyrometer & boost gauge pod install

    As far as I know. I haven't had the pump apart to see what button is in it and the adjustment screw is still blocked by the metal ball... The only engine mods I've done were the Jake brakes and the dual duel upgrade.

    New pyrometer & boost gauge pod install

    I took my truck out for a Sunday drive and got to see how hot it runs. Running empty, steady cruise on flat roads was under 600°F and downhill/idle cooled to about 300°F. Going up moderate hills in 4th at 40mph got the needle up to 1000°F pretty quick and it stopped moving there. Seeing how...

    WA Soldier B HubHelper for 2.5, 5, and 10 ton trucks

    On the far right is a prototype of a CUCV or Dana 60/70 HubHelper. There have been quite a few requests for this model and it's made but not yet tested. More details to follow in the near future after testing this one out.
