    Jerky Zerk!

    I have a grease fitting on my front right rear shackle (the upper one) that will not allow grease to go in. I suspect this thing is seizing and I get a loud thump noise going over bumps. Anyone dealt with sticky shackles before?

    LMTV A0 interior door handle project

    Did and search and found nothing on this, so here goes. I finally had enough of the funky aluminum paddle we use to open our doors from the inside. Don't laugh, but I spent hours looking at every Dorman plastic door handle in the online catalog, and found very little possibilities. My German...

    Burning Man Flambe' 5-Ton

    A friend with the Wellington, Nevada EMS Volunteers sent this to me earlier this week. I drive an M1078, so not truly familiar with older MV's. The story was this... Some folks returning from Burning Man in a 5-Ton, detoured over a local pass to avoid Hwy 395 which was closed due to a wild...

    Cracked! Something else to check on your FMTV...

    After returning from OE18, I gave the beast a through wash down. On a short trip to the local dump, I noticed a small oil leak that was found to be loose flange fittings on the small oil 'pipe' between the head and the fuel governor. Closer inspection revealed this... a cracked front gear...

    A-0 Fuel Solenoid wiring, help please...

    After returning from our Overland Expo Trek, it came time to remove the three post fuel solenoid borrowed from a CAT loader and install the new one. Thinking I have the wiring correct, I do not get a 'click' from the new two post unit and the starter does not work. Can someone have a quick...

    LMTV to OE18, Our Achilles Heel and other diversions...

    I am considering replacing the stock speedo in my A-0 truck with one of the GPS type units that are prevalent on the online auction sites. Has anyone here done this? Can anyone tell me the diameter of the mounting hole on the A-0 trucks for the speedo? Pointman

    Front prop shaft replacement

    So I detected excessive spline play in the front prop shaft... What to do? A local shop specializing in drive line repair (and a Spicer auth. dealer) quoted me $575.00 to repair. Thanks to Suprman for the referral to Eastern Supply. Bought a new one for $475.00 and it appears to have much...

    Erratic Speedometer reading..

    I'm finally getting around to addressing this issue. Once started in Neutral, the speedo needle takes a big jump when 'drive' is chosen. Matter of fact, anytime a different drive mode is selected, the needle jumps... Additionally, the speed shown is around 50% of what the GPS indicates. Am I...

    LMTV Air Filter Element Part # ???

    Gents, Can anyone verify that the correct Donaldson PN# for the M1078's Air Filter Element is P527750. I'm looking to replace mine, and a search was inconclusive and Flea-Bay is a bid dodgy. Thanks in advance! Pointman
