    M101A2/3 VIN NUMBER?

    Any luck? Maybe get a new data plate and use the serial number of a scrapped trailer?

    Parts location 6.2 lift pump supply line

    Might check your fuel tank pickup sock. They are known to clog and starve the engine when the fuel demand is higher.

    Generator help plz (MEP-003A)

    Welcome to Steel Soldiers Answer to question……. Possible? Probably Most likely expensive I think it would be much easier and cheaper to use that as a parts machine and look for a complete unit.

    Mercedes-Benz M906LA Diesel

    I was very surprised. It wasn’t a high bid auction to begin with but I would have assumed they would have just sent them to auction again. After a conversation with the site manager I understand why they didn’t do that. Much easier and cheaper for a host of reasons to just get it off the...

    Need help with manifold valve on new to me M149a2

    Hope you don’t have to buy a new one. Surplus ones are stupid expensive. Mine is the t-handle and I assume they both work the same way, but I have not seen your style valve before. Just the T-handle. As you turn the handle, it moves a plunger forward or backward to either open or close the...

    Mercedes-Benz M906LA Diesel

    Thank you All I kept finding was the NSN saying a diesel engine for a combat vehicle and that the Govt hasn’t bought any new engines in the last 5 years. Not a common engine that I’m aware, but I don’t deal with any engines of this size. I sold my 5 tons long ago and they were Cummins. It was...

    Mercedes-Benz M906LA Diesel

    Picked up two diesel engines today. One was a HMMWV 6.5NA and a rather large and heavy Mercedes-Benz M906LA diesel engine. Both are in their military shipping containers. Question is…….What in the world did the military use this Mercedes engine for? I have struck out using the NSN. I think it’s...

    What did you do to your trailer today.

    The solid rims are not the easiest to find. Usually pricey when you do. I was very lucky. Those lugs should work fine. Please post if you have any issues.

    What did you do to your trailer today.

    Bought a NOS camo trailer cover for my workhorse M101A2. Looks kinda silly on a tan trailer but it will work for now. These are getting scarce and very expensive. I will replace the lousy nylon ropes with the rubber rope. Did that mod on my other trailer and it’s a breeze to get in and out of...

    What did you do to your trailer today.

    I was surprised on how often I use the water trailer. Has been extremely handy It has been used as everything from a remote shower to a movable water supply for a power washer and so on. I keep it filled in the warmer months so we always have drinking water if needed. It’s getting close to...

    What have you done to your CUCV today/lately - Part 2

    Those trailers are HEAVY. They make a modern day dually truck squat a lot. I see what you mean about tail lights needing installed.

    What did you do to your trailer today.

    Picked up a set of the solid wheels and G186 tires for the M149A2 water trailer. No more lock rings. Will install this week.

    Mashed Potatoes: M1101

    They were definitely needing grease. Wouldn’t have carried a heavy load very far. At least you now know their condition and they have plenty of grease. Numerous examples in the old threads of guys getting trailers that looked great, but had junk dry bearings, including me. Glad you checked...
