    11.00 R 20 Tires on M35A3 wheels???

    Simply asked, are the rim/ wheels supplied with the M35A3 extended service program trucks able to fit the M35A2 11.00 R 20 tires used on the older split rim wheels that are so common on the A2 dueces? I have an A3 truck with the standard 14.5 super singles that come on all M35A3 trucks, but...

    HMMWV Red-Dot A/C - Water Drain

    The local PD got a 1987 M998, and is now in service with new paint and decals. It came out really ncie, for a used truck. It was up-armored for pre-deployment training, and came with the Red-Dot A/C unit to keep the cabin cool. What I have been noticing is that when the A/C runs, and as the...

    6TL Batteries and 6TMF Batteries

    6TL Batteries and 6TMF Batteries; Is there a difference? I have 6TL batts in my duece, and want to replace 6TMF batts in the M998 HMMWV. Too make things easier, I just assume use the 6TL batts because I have a local source. Visa versa, if the Duece can take the 6TMF batts, then I would like to...

    HMMWV VIN Numbers

    I picked up an Up-Armored side & rear M998 yesterday at Ft. Dix. I'm looking for information on where to locate the VIN? The M998 dataplate is barely readable. Would it be stamped on the frame like much like a duece? I am a Duece guy and know the M35 intimately, but this is new, and so requires...

    parking brake springs

    Anyone have a trick to attaching the small parking brake spring from the adjustment screw on the frame to the shoe on top of the drum? It is awfully tight, and I'm sure someone has a trick to installing it. *NOTE - I'm not talking about the long spring that goes from the arm to the frame.

    Does anyone know what the newest model year would haqe been for the 1/4 ton M416 trailers? My reading points to 1968, but I didn't know if the trailers were made into the 70's or 80's. The canadian trailer I have was built in 1992, which kept it from getting beat up, and rotting. Since the...

    M35A3 Dash Panel

    Has anyone installed the A3 dash panel in their A2? I don't think the New type electric Tachometer has any way to attach to the Multi-fuel motor, but the panel itself, allows for a " Low Air Warning Light ", as well as an " Emergency Brake Light" , on the panel. The Low air isn't a problem...

    So I bought some of the different color Dash Panel Lenses, to spruce up my duece. I used Blue for my High Beams, and Amber for my Air Shift Front Axle engagement. They add a little bit of color to the all green interior. Red looked cool instead of the Amber, but I already have the green...

    Deuce water jacket, cylinder head

    Has anyone pulled the water jacket that the flame heater is mounted to? Seems that there are two short hoses that connect up to the manifold and run the hot water out of the heads into the radiator. I am toying with the idea of changing them. They were replaced when the motor was rebuilt at...
