We appreciate all of the work that you put into this yearly Steve.
I think that the opposite may be true if you skip a year especially under these circumstances...even more people could make the effort in 2021.
Thanks for the feedback everyone & especially thank you for those pics of the m1010 with the ambulance body removed. That was helpful to understand how it works.
I had another thought that might make this 'more worth going to all this trouble'.
I recently scored a deal on a 1988 v30 Air...
I have the opportunity to purchase a m1010 roller...well sort of.
The cab is rotten, axles are gone, & the drivetrain has already been removed.
It would come with half ton axles to make it movable.
I currently have two d30s... one of which is a clean m1008a1 that was painted...
Thank you guys for the feedback. I may purchase additional units but have no plans of ever housing them on the same trailer.
I went there today & picked up the nicest of the 5 complete units sitting there. I have the option to snag a 2nd one for $450 more (2 for $1000) but I ran into a...
Thank you for the link to that thread!
I will read through it when I sit down tonight...
I see prices all over the place so I guess that I'm not 100% sure.
The seller had bought around 20 of these 003a's one year ago at a local GSA auction.
He was selling them to people he knew for $850...
Valid point. I am going to go look at/purchase one tomorrow. I will haul it home with the trailer that I have & that should give me an idea of how it fits in there.
According to Al Gores internet I should have 13.5" of total clearance between the wheel wells.
I was hoping to either center it...
I have the opportunity to purchase a MEP-003a & I think it's exactly what I am looking for... simple mechanical diesel genset!
I am actually considering snagging two because the price is reasonable.
My initial idea is to mount one inside my m101a2 trailer. I love the idea of...
Thank you Steve, Marie, & all of the other volunteers!
I had a great time at the event today!
Unfortunately the weather was about as poor as could be expected for mid May.
I enjoyed the layout of the event & wish that more could have attended.
The lunch was tasty & all of the perks of...
I am working to recruit some additional members from our local 'group'....so far I have 4 that want to attend but 2 of them were already at last year's event. I should be able to convince another couple of them...
When do you want the rsvp's by?
Looking forward to this event!
Thank you everyone for the welcome! The turbo exhaust goes through the wheel well, down the passenger side frame rail & exits below the back of the passenger door. It doesn't protrude into the wheel well but you can see it.
That's been one of my questions....is that the best practice Or...
Hello, I am relatively new to this forum but I have read hundreds of posts in my quest for information!
I joined a few months back when I bought a pretty rough '84 M1009 that had electrical issues.
I worked on troubleshooting it some & plan on looking at it again this spring.
