    WTB: 8V71 Oil Cooler for M109 Powerpack

    Looking for one of these - oil cooler/ heat exchanger from the 8V71 power pack fitted to the M109 155mm Self-Propelled. NSN 2930-01-013-7964 Detroit Diesel p/n 5149054 (another p/n sometimes crossed over to - 5149077 - is just the empty tube center section and won't work out.) I already...

    FMTV - 24/12 Converter instead of the Niehoff dual-voltage alternator?

    Bought some lightly cannibalized FMTV A0 trucks a couple of years ago and finally getting around to putting them back together. Two have the alternators robbed off of them (Niehoff N1506-1), and since trying to buy a replacement from our supplier friends is almost what was paid for the trucks -...

    Anyone have a spare copy lying around they care to part with? I'm playing around with some SeaLevel ACC-188 stuff on SINCGARS but can only go so far without the software/ drivers.

    MIL-PRF-6083 hydraulic oil (latest is 6083F or G)

    Been running in circles over trying to find this stuff and hope someone's found a source. I have all the cross-references known to man at my fingertips but I need someone who actually *has* some I can buy vs. just another bunch of numbers, dead-ends and maybes/ possiblies (which has been my...

    MTS II/ Movement Tracking System

    Anyone have any wiring info/ cabling info/ manuals etc. for the DRS Technologies MTS II system? One of the FMTVs at work had the power supply box still wired in, and I picked up some cables from Austin, but...none of it seems to go together so I'm still missing something. I managed to get a...

    M109A4 155mm Howitzer

    Anyone know any scrapyards etc. that may have some M109A4 stuff kicking around? Need some minor bits for the museum's M109A4 (details in the Classified/ Parts Wanted section) and have pretty much exhausted every route I could think of.

    Austin's got another SIAD up for sale if any of you out there bought one of the recent Ebay FBCB2/ Blue Force Tracker setups and need one. Usual caveats apply. And if you don't know what it don't need it :)

    Norwegian Army: what vehicles in '74-75?

    Hopefully someone knows, but what 1/4 ton - 1/2 ton vehicles and what 2-1/2 ton - 5-ton vehicles were in use by the Norwegian Army around 1974-1975? Were they painted that odd angular splinter cam - or just some form of OD green? I've seen some pics of hardtop Land Rover Series III 109s in...

    LMTV Transmission Selector/ Control - no display

    Every now and then I'll start up the 1993 M1078, and there will be no display on the transmission selector, and you cannot select gears. Turning it off and restarting it usually brings it back (after doing it once or twice), but then when driving it sometimes again gives you no display, and...

    FMTV Front Brakes

    One of the recent purchases at work had ineffective brakes. Checked to see air was being applied to all the chambers - all good - then found out that the back brakes were working, but the fronts appeared to be doing nothing. Pulled the front chambers apart and manually actuated the plunger to...

    Fbcb2 - an/uyk-128 - hmmwv computer

    So, managed to get all the bits after x-years of looking. No hard drive (so no OPSEC-worrying functionality for those inclined to worry), but booted up to BIOS splash screen...then, unfortunately...I clicked some option largely by accident and now it won't boot to the splash screen again. So...

    M1078 Alternator Parts source?

    So, for some reason or other, the alternator in my otherwise running perfectly ex-Kuwait 1994 M1078 is missing the cooling fan. What's weird is that someone would've had to remove it and then bolt the guard back on - because there it sits. Bizarre. Was that something done in the sandbox to...

    M939 No Spring Brake Ops -

    Years ago we bought an M923 from an Ebay vendor, which was an ex-GSA USFS disposal. The spring brakes never worked, but it seemed to stop fine. I finally got around to it and...yeah. Just...yeah. The spring brakes didn't work because, as per usual, they'd jammed on and someone at some...

    M939 Axle stub "RING - WIPER" installation tool?

    Doing a couple of rear axle inner oil seal replacements on an M923 and the surface the oil seal rides on is badly grooved, so I want to replace what most of us would call the existing Speedi Sleeve - but which the Army calls "RING - WIPER, 2590-00-740-9553". Anyway, found a great deal on the...

    M939A2 CTIS Front/ Rear Wheel Air Seals - manual glitch?

    So, just going through the 5000-plus pages of the c.2012 maint manuals and parts books, and there's an anomaly. In the maint. manual it indicates that there are two different air seals with two different part numbers at each hub. When you go to the parts manual set, it says that the air seals...

    SINCGARS available

    Mike Murphy has 1st generation SINCGARS radios for sale described as 'very used' but in good working condition for $779 bucks. These appear to be the RT-1439 variants according to the photo (i.e. non-ICOM), but I doubt you'll ever beat the price if you want to take a step up from the VRC-12...
