    LA 5 ton Insurance not parked in garage

    I went the same route after investigating Hagerty. Too many restrictions. Costs more but worth it for me to do what I want or might want to do without having to worry about not being covered if something goes wrong.

    M936 Wrecker Boom - Replacement Winch Cable - What about Stainless Cable?

    I find this an interesting question. From what I can find Stainless Steel wire rope has less capacity that standard steel of the same diameter. 5/8" Wire Rope 6 x 19 IWRC Core Steel = 8,200 lbs. lift rated 5/8" Wire Rope 6 x 19 IWRC Core 18-8 Stainless Steel = 6,260 lbs. lift rated Perhaps...

    Transfer Case questions

    This task was accomplished successfully. Is there any way to set the clearance on the countershaft while it is in the truck? The TM drawings make me think when I pull the countershaft cover off it will expose the shims. No hole in the cover to use as a way to test this end play. Is the only way...

    Transfer Case questions

    Need some transfer case advice here. Closest thread I could find. Feels to me like I can move the emergency brake drum up and down like it has play. Not just in and out. I took it all apart to change the seal and found the shims etc. on the output retainer. I read the TM and it seems to say...

    Gear Lash and Driveline Vibrations - It wasn't the drivelines

    On my old deuce all of the shafts I have found have one wide tooth so you can't screw up the phasing. At least I don't think so. I wanted to ask it sounds like these newer trucks don't have that? Seems like a simple fail-safe solution to me.

    More Stuff wanted M35A2 jackshaft (A2 after mod style with snap ring ujoint retainers) and M35 spring seats

    Do you know the number of the spider and bearings? I might have a new set I bought by mistake if you need it.

    395/85R20: What to look for before bidding

    Maybe you already have but if not you could check out Eastern Surplus. They are a supporter of the site and located not too far from your area. If you search you will see they have new and used options available in that size. You probably could choose the tires you want if you went over there...

    Air leak from transmission area, brake pedal like concrete

    I cannot recall the correct air pressure setting but I feel like it is around 120 psi. If your compressor is charging higher than that on the in-cab gauge then try installing another gauge somewhere to check your reading. If it goes too high the governor might be the problem. If you have a...

    OK how about a different measurement M35A2 jackshaft ujoint center-to ujoint center installed distance.

    There is a spacer on the transmission side that is about 1" long. Maybe some trucks have it left out? Possible different styles of the transmission output seal retainer? Since knowledgeable people are looking at this thread: My jackshaft had two small weld beads on the inside where the vent...

    OK how about a different measurement M35A2 jackshaft ujoint center-to ujoint center installed distance.

    I can get you this number tonight if no one else get's it sooner. I have the jackshaft out of the truck. Easiest measurement to provide for me would be face of pinion flange to face of pinion flange. Jackshaft is disassembled right now so can't measure that.

    Tire pickup from Chambersburg delivered to Nassau County Long Island, NY

    Thank you for this information. I have not yet tried to break down one of these tires. I have the tools and hopefully an old timer neighbor can help me and give out some pointers. Based on the way the spare rims I received were rusted I figure they will be a very hard time to break down and...

    Tire pickup from Chambersburg delivered to Nassau County Long Island, NY

    Might be the case. All the tires were deflated when I recieved them. Personally I think they were left out in the rain this way and water sits on the rim and gets in the split area. I am by means no expert on this. Truck came with a bunch of crappy spares when I bought it. Most were deflated...

    Tire pickup from Chambersburg delivered to Nassau County Long Island, NY

    I used a shipping guy I found thru the service that Govplanet has. It worked out OK. Wasn't cheap but saved me the trip over there. They tack on a pretty good charge for their services but once you find a guy you can avoid all that. Guys name is Blaise. 615-389-4590. Best price I could easily...

    Old M39 M809 series: brake and air lines identical?

    I see reason why it should not work fine. Good luck with it.
