    Electrial problem on 5 ton dump - M51

    Electrical problems make my head hurt so I hope someone can lead me in the right direction to find this problem. The truck has sat unused for about 6 months. When I went to get it there was no power when the master switch was turned on. OK, batteries are old so must be dead. Charged batteries...

    New to me M37

    My M7 arrived at the farm this week. Thanks to oldvw2 for selling it to me. It is a very solid truck and came loaded with parts to get it fixed up right. I would love to just drive it some but Chad had started restoring it, so it is going into the shop to strip the body parts off. I wish I...

    She's a whistler

    OK, so I finally got my latest Duece home yesterday. I posted earlier about it and all the parts missing and commented it might be a parts truck. Someone came back and told me someone beat me to it. Well the contract date is 1984 so it is that or newer. The Radiator is gone so we stuck a...

    New engine

    Just installed an NOS A2 engine in the MUTT. The old engine had a bad cylinder that woukl foul the plug if you ran slow very long. Slow on the Farm right now so swapped her out. The new engine started right up after a few taps on the Carb to get gas flowing. Amazing for an engine that...

    817 almost goes for a swim

    My Friend Bob bought his 817 to clean out his pond and make it deeper. After backing in and removing over 700 loads he forgot he had narrowed the road.

    Brake question

    A five ton truck has glad hands at the front, so when towing you hook the service brakes up and have brakes on the towed truck with no modifications. Can I run an air line to the rear of a duece being towed and have brakes, or will it damage something??
