    XM816 Wrecker will not go over 1500 RPM

    I had the same thing happen on my m816. When the hydraulic pump For the boom is put in gear there is a throttle stop engaged under the hood on the side of the engine to stop you from overreving the pump. There is some linkage under the bed that controls that. I had one of the pins came out of...

    another m135 towing question

    Yeah you can do that to isolate the transmission but would still be turning some part of the transfer and sometimes that ujoint assembly can be a pisser to get out. The front shackles pins are 7/8” if I remember correctly. I use tractor drawbar pins for them, they are hardened, you can get any...

    Mule lights kill engine?

    I got some free time to look into it. There were some problems on the way it was grounded. How anyone thought it would work right the way it was done is beyond me. I’ve corrected that and it seems to work fine now. I’m gonna be running it a bunch this weekend so that will be a good test. Thanks

    Mule lights kill engine?

    Hi all I bought an M274 A5 that has lights, alternator, battery, and starter installed on it. The problem is when the machine is running and you turn on the lights it kills the engine. I haven’t dug into the problem yet. Just thought I would throw it out to everyone before I tare it apart for...

    Looking at a M59. Need info

    If you do end up repowering with a different engine and trans and don’t have a need for the 302 and hydra. I might be interested. My big drawback from that machine was transporting it but sounds like you got it covered.

    M211 correct transmission oil

    I use Case IH Hy-Tran oil in all my g749’s. It’s not cheap but it’s made for heavy use in ag equipment transmissions that have clutch’s and gears and a shared hydraulic system. It’s good stuff

    G749 preservation

    The engine I did that on wound up having other problems and I swapped a different 302 in it’s place. I didn’t back any bolts out but still bent some but it was a nice way to put a lot of pressure to it slowly. As far as separating a junk 302 from trany I have dropped the crankshaft out the...

    G749 preservation

    I have pulled the torus cover off and used a portapower or hydraulic jack on the flywheel bolts to spin the crankshaft to free it. Then but new bolts in after

    M37 not running correctly after being stored for 2 years

    I had an old timer tell me along time ago “most of your carb problems are in the distributor”. That was for any old engine

    Left hand wheel stud options? G749

    Probably 6 or so. Looking through the catalog posted buy Duuane I might have found a replacement. I will check with a heavy truck parts supplier near me to see if it’s available. Hopefully I’ll have some luck.

    Left hand wheel stud options? G749

    Has anybody got a source for LH wheel studs p#501246? I haven’t had much luck finding new ones and I’ve just about exhausted the take offs that I’ve been using. Thanks

    Looking at a M59. Need info

    Hi all I’m looking at an M59 to buy and I I’m new to armor. What should be looking out for? I’ve looked at it twice and been in it. The tracks look good and it’s pretty complete. It is missing one engine but I’m familiar with the gmc302 and the hyramatic and have those parts. What do I need to...

    New member xm211

    I’m about 3.5 hours east of Des Moines. There are several of these G749s scattered around the country side that I’ve found just rotting away. You probably have more parts opportunities then you know. Just get the word out. You never know what people have sitting on the back 40.

    Towing M211 with tow bar

    You can get tractor drawbar pins in any size. They are hardened and have a hole for a safety pin. I think you need 7/8” if it hasn’t been worn out bigger.
