    Frozen air tank drain

    My inside tank drain (the "wet" tank) is frozen. I dont imagine it'll be too hard to thaw it, but what can I do to prevent it from happening all the time here in the butt cold midwest?

    Camp Dodge M105 retrieval 6-3-09

    Well the drive to pick up the trailer has finally happened. I was prompt at 7AM, and the Sgt loaded the 105 on my trailer with the BFF. I strapped it down and hit the road. I did move it back a few feet before I hit the highway. There was just too much tongue weight. I wouldn't have bothered...

    Here are the pics of the tags on my engine. The serial numbers match, the date on the IP, and turbo, and engine match. How can I know if this engine is an LDS-1A?

    MEP003A success

    I'm not sure who was bidding against me on the 003A that I got from Camp Dodge. I'm sorry you didn't get it as I paid way more than I wanted. You could've had it for $50 more. However, after I got it fired up this morning, I no longer regret winning it. It was missing the fuel tank, and the...

    Minimum CFM requirement for brakes

    Anyone know what it is? I'm thinking of just throwing a compressor in the back of the truck for the 130 mile trip home. I'm just curious how much air I need.

    Post auction deuce inspection Camp dodge

    I met up with Scott this morning at Camp Dodge. I really wanted to come preview but just couldn't make it. The good news: The engine was rebuilt in 1981, the generator rebuilt in Sept 2000. It has a spring seat (is this air ride?), heater, air shift front diff, and a brand new vinyl cargo...

    Newly acquired deuce

    Just obtained this deuce, but unfortunately there were some bidding issues and I ended up with a MEP003 that I wanted, but not in the way I got it. I'm sure my bro will expose my error for me since I really don't want to.
