    M817 Dump with no brakes

    I purchased an M817 a few years ago and I am finally getting around to fixing it. It had no brakes when I picked it up from GL. It runs good and makes air pressure, but the brake pedal goes to the floor. I have added fluid to it, but I still get no pressure on the pedal. Is there...

    I would appreciate any help with a possible diagnosis on my m62a2. I tried to help pull out a stuck 10 wheel dump truck today. I had to be towed away from the still stuck dump truck with a clutch that does not return to its prior position. The clutch pedal now sits one to two inches from...

    Bob 5 ton with 2.5 hardware?

    I have a 5 ton flatbed I want to bob. I was wondering if it was possible to bob it with 2.5 ton parts. I was thinking if they fit, it would provide a slightly softer ride. I dont need to be able to haul heavy loads, so I wouldn't mind a loss in carrying capacity. Thanks for any help...

    MEP-003 automatic shut down?

    Does the MEP-003 have an automatic shut down system? I was out of power this last weekend and it was working great. It ran for a little over 12 hours and then shut down. I used my old small generator for a little bit and then the power went on. I havent even had a chance to look it over...

    MEP 003 fluctuating voltage

    I have a MEP 003 that I replaced the voltage regulator board last weekend. I can adjust the voltage now with the rheostat, but the voltage will not stay steady. The voltage will go up and down approximately 15 volts for a total variation of 30 volts. I tested the output with a voltmeter to...

    Ground wires on MEP-003

    It is my understanding that there are four ground wires on the 003. One is the negative from the batteries, one is the generator head, one is the slave cable, and the last one comes from the panel. If I look at the back of the grounding bolt should I see all four wires at that point? Jim

    need TM to test the voltage regulator

    I read the general TM for the MEP-003, but I would like to test the voltage regulator itself to make sure that is my problem. I would also be interested in fixing it myself if possible. Is there another TM I should be reading? Jim

    My new generator runs great, and the two 110 outlets work fine. I have printed out and read the tm, but I dont fully understand the knob on the full right hand side of the panel that reads voltage and the knob that changes the voltage and phase output. How would I want to set up the...

    HEMTT one piece rims

    I received what GL stated were HEMTT rims. I was expecting the two piece rims, but I received solid black one piece rims. They are twelve inches wide and will fit 20 inch tires. Are the rims I received HEMMT rims, and will they work on five ton trucks? Jim

    multifuel glow plug

    Does the multifuel have a 12 volt glow plug like the cummins. Does it have a separate positive lead that should be hooked up to only one battery. Thank you, Jim

    Turning fuel down on a multifuel

    I suspect that my multifuel was turned up. It is a M62A2. It will overheat, it has blown a head gasket, and it makes copious amounts of smoke when accelerating. Would a hand held IR thermometer work for takeing temps, and if so where would I take it? Do I, or should I put in a pyro? I have...
