    Rattle at highway speed- Engine Governor?

    I do have an automatic high idle with the crane, but I disengaged it at the air piston and control it manually. I drive around with the transfer case on the floor. Never figured out what the upper (above neutral) position does, other than bang my ankle.

    Rattle at highway speed- Engine Governor?

    It sounds too shallow to be that, and I also just had this engine fully rebuilt. It sounds like it is under the cab, not in the engine.

    Rattle at highway speed- Engine Governor?

    Governor at 2200, right at 58 mph indicated. I got it up to 61 once and it felt like I was re-entering earth's atmosphere. Also, re-read my post. I edited to provide more info.

    Rattle at highway speed- Engine Governor?

    My 1984 M936 has a terrible rattle at highway speed- but only when the engine is at governor and I go down a slight downhill. At normal cruise it's fine, but when I go to a slight downhill--only enough to put the engine/driveline in a neutral load-- it will rattle like a bunch of bolts in a...

    Help for a new m936 owner please...

    You can get them on Amazon or PM me your address and I'll drop a couple in the mail to you in the morning. I think you have to buy packs of 20 on the Amazon.

    I agree with simp. You shouldn't need any of those chip boards in there. Just two solenoids and a couple of diodes. I have an ABS truck and mine has no electronic circuitry in it at all.

    That's a Simp question, but I believe they are all 24v 85 amp continuous duty solenoids. There are a couple of small diodes in the box as I recall as well.

    Help for a new m936 owner please...

    It's really pretty simple. Pull the old box down with a couple of half inch socket wrenches. Unplug it from the truck. Pry the box lid off with a flat tip screwdriver. Replace the two starter solenoids Inside the box wire for wire. Very simple process, should take a couple of hours at most.

    You can rebuild the PCB yourself. Mine was bad when I got it, as well. You just need to order two of these and get a screwdriver: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001FQMZO2/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_VZNRDF8P2G4TY701S942?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

    Generator Tool Box Needed

    Well, you're in Wimberly, so I might just drive over and get it. I have some buddies in Austin that could pick it up, too. R

    Fermont 804B Resistor Missing-- Do I have to replace voltage regulator too?

    I have a Fermont 804B that I'm raising from the dead. The engine starts and runs, and I've replaced the missing gauges. I can't get it to generate electricity, I suspect because the resistor to the "frequency" is missing. From my research, I understand that I have to replace the voltage...

    Generator Tool Box Needed

    The problem is the search parameters. "tool box" generates every search result from home depot to Ted Cruz.

    More cushin' for the pushin'- Need new seat covers

    I need to replace both my driver's seat bottom (suspension seat), and the passenger bench seat bottom and back rest. That would only leave the driver's seat backrest as old, and I would just swap all of them out. Has anyone done a recover? I can buy covers from Midwest, but only some are in...

    Generator Tool Box Needed

    Yes, that's exactly what I'm looking for. AN added bonus would be a green one in decent shape.

    What did you do to your M939 today?

    I wish I could take credit for that load. I just lifted the boom and ran the 936. My guys did all the chains.

    Thanks for the effort. I've been hitting dead end after dead end. R

    Generator Tool Box Needed

    I already posted in wanted, and got no responses. I've looked at civilian options, but would rather keep it looking as authentic as possible. Obviously, a paint job is in the future for this machine. R

    Generator Tool Box Needed

    I've got a MEP-804B Fermont genset on a trailer. When I got it from Govplanet, someone had removed the small, long toolbox from the trailer on the right fender, which would be really handy for a few things I leave on the generator. I've tried searching for "toolbox", but that gives me too many...

    What did you do to your M939 today?

    Light(er) load today (17,040 pounds). But the hydraulics are dead, so I had to lift the boom with the 936 to get it on the trailer. And she thought she was just going to sit in a field and retire!!

    What did you do to your M939 today?

    No "two finger steering". It actually drives really nice loaded. The trailer has air brakes, so that helps a lot. As for your purchase of a trailer, I'd get a 15 ton, not a 5-ton capacity. Mine is a 10-ton capacity, and I knock on that door more than I'd like to admit (e.g. the Genie 1056 as...
