    Does anyone know if the Deuce pintle will accept a 2.5" lunette ring opening? The M105 trailers have a 3" lunette ring.

    Mechanical tachometer ratio

    Does anyone know what the tach ratio is & if the stock fitting is common on civilian vehicles? I can't stand where the speedo & tach are located & hope to move them. This might require longer cables. Also, does anyone know if easier-to-view aftermarket gauges would accept the stock cable ends...

    Exhaust tip suggestions

    I need some of the more experienced diesel experts to give me some suggestions. I'm putting a resonator and stack muffler in place of the Deuce's straight pipe. The combination will place the muffler exit at almost the same height as the current stock tip-out. Yes, I know. That's an awfully...

    Hydro assist to manual steering

    Instead of doing a power steering swap or a full-hydro conversion, has anyone considered a hydraulic ram-assist piggybacked on top of the stock Deuce manual steering? It seems that would be a viable solution to power steering without even touching the original setup. A bolt-on steering column...

    5 ton sprag transfer case a power divider?

    Is the reasoning for a sprag transfer case in the 5 ton to act as a power divider, minimizing the chance of drivetrain windup on pavement? The Hemtt Oshkosh transfer cases are front-air-select like the Deuce, correct? Is that because the Hemtt is primarily for off road & doesn't need a power...

    Different 5 ton transfer cases?

    Is there only one type of 5 ton transfer case? Just curious. I need a TC capable of handling the torque from a Cummins 8.3L. Do the regular sprag type 5 ton cases split the power 50/50 or is it torque sensing, only engaging the front when the rears slip? Thanks.

    Air Brake Question

    I won a 14 ton bolster trailer today. I plan to use the frame, tongue, & lunette but will ditch the axles in a future poject. I want to pick up the trailer with the Deuce. This trailer is normally towed by a 5 ton. It appears to have air brakes. My question for the trailer experts is...

    Or is one side longer than the other? That is, are driver & passenger side shafts identical?

    Help ID My Camo Pattern Please

    It's a 1971 Kaiser. I have no idea how many times it's been repainted. I think it's an Army truck. It has a chess set "knight" with some folded pawns on the hood. If anyone knows the camo pattern and colors it would be greatly appreciated.

    GL was easy!

    Yes. Working with GL was not complicated. Maybe I just got lucky. I purchased an M36 in mid-September. I paid with PayPal. I filled out the EUC. I had to scan it & send it back twice (my fault, not GL's. I overlooked a few check boxes). I waited about 2 1/2 months, which was fine since I...

    Why are front rims positive offset?

    On large trucks such as the Deuce or any other big truck the front rims are always positive offset (as opposed to negative "deep dish" offset). I am a novice to large truck design. I'm just curious why every large truck has positive offset on the steer axle? Is it simply to aid steering or is...

    EUC Cleared & Invoice Paid In Full, Now What?

    Now what? The Government Liquidation website says that I have to bring photo ID, proof of registration & insurance & cleared EUC. Will the Site Manager at the base have a copy of my cleared EUC? Do i bring my original EUC form that I emailed off a few months ago? All I could find on the GL...

    First let me say that YES I tried & tried to use the Search feature to get an answer to this question. Having failed at that, I hope someone here can explain the procedure to me. And if you could, kind of dumb it down into easily understandable chunks. I get confused easily. Thanks. After...

    GL Deuce run without gauges?

    I've notices that many of the Deuces on GL are missing the gauges. Will missing any of these gauges prevent a Deuce from being driven? What I mean is, if I were to win a GL auction for a gauge-less truck, would it make it home? Or would it spit out oil, air etc from gauge connections that are...

    M36 frame length question

    Is the M36A2 frame longer than the M35A2, or is it simply an M35 frame with the rear axles located further back? I want to move my M35 rear axles back a few feet to accomodate a crew cab. But to keep the full-length 12' bed I would have to extend the rear of the frame by the same amount. I'm...

    Counterfeit ARB Lockers

    Apparently China is now counterfeiting ARB air locking differentials. Kind of makes you wonder what else is being counterfeited that we don't know about.

    M105A3 Cargo Hoop Help

    Can somebody explain to me what exactly these five brackets on each side are used for? The cargo hoops (5 of them) go into the 5 upright stakes on each side from front to back. Are these brackets used for some kind of reinforcing? They are bolted to the top rail, 5 on each side. I assume...

    I bought a garbage truck, hahaha

    Yes, I bought an actual garbage truck. I was looking for a Ross steering box a few months ago for a Gringletaube steering project. I never found the Ross box. But here is what I did find. It's a 1994 CCC garbage truck - Crane Carrier Corporation out of Oklahoma. The story that I was told...
