    M37 Cargo Bow Questions

    I never saw a 715 with bows. That isa significant difference vs the 37. Surprised the bow corners were not standardized. Good info - thanks. Jim

    M37 Cargo Bow Questions

    Yup - that's what I have only yours are prettier. I used to prefer the wood to be painted but I've come around to natural look. And I do appreciate you trekking out into the cold to gather that info. It's 31° here in Raton NM. High yesterday was 65°. Jim

    M37 Cargo Bow Questions

    Storm 51 I really appreciate it. I had accumulated quite a few parts before my M37 was destroyed and not all were on the truck. Kept thinking someday I'd have another but it's too late in the game for that to happen. So these things will be sold. NOTE: If anyone is considering reproducing...

    M37 Cargo Bow Questions

    Good info - thanks. Figured they had to be early because of leather vs webbing. Follow-up question: These bows are for stake pockets that are about 65" center to center. Does that fit an M37 or is there a chance they are for something else like M715 or a WC or CCKW? To me 65" seems too wide...

    M37 Cargo Bow Questions

    Thanks Dave These are M37 corners not M101 corners. I wanted to make sure the complete bow was for the M37 and not an M715 or other truck. Jim

    M37 Cargo Bow Questions

    Greetings I have not been on SS since I sold my M1009 and M101A2. Previously I owned a '62 M37B1 w/winch and had slowly collected some parts for it. Sadly the M37 was totally destroyed in a building fire. The only MV I have left is an M416. During a recent relocation a lot of M37 parts came...

    Old Military vehicle locomotion trials

    As I recall the only other prototype that was actually built and tested was the wheeled version by Boeing and Goodyear. You are correct, the Boeing/Goodyear version won the trials and went on for further test & evaluation. In house Cat propaganda claimed Cat/MM lost due to the MTS rubber...

    Old Military vehicle locomotion trials

    I worked at Caterpillar Inc. My department developed Cat's "Mobile Track System" (MTS). MTS is a steel cable reinforced rubber track. It was developed for the "Challenger" series of ag tractors. The advantages of MTS rubber track over Cat's steel track were: (1) ability to road the machine...

    M1009 Transmission & Trans Case Vent Lines

    cucvrus & Drock Thanks for the reply. I made the assumption the vents had extension tubes routed up higher somewhere. Found the transmission vent - just a small diameter plastic tube 2 to 3 inches long with no hose or valve. Did not see anything on the t-case. Need to look again.

    M1009 Transmission & Trans Case Vent Lines

    Whereabouts should I be looking for the outlet/discharge ends of M1009 vent lines for the transmission and transfer case? This info is not in any of the TMs so far as I can see. Thanks Jim

    Fan Clutch Troubleshooting

    scottladdy Now you have insulted me by your characterization of me as anxious and scared - where in **** does that come from? I do regret providing a less than perfect set of observations regarding the state of the cooling system. In my own defense, all I was looking for at that time was...

    Fan Clutch Troubleshooting

    Your concern about incorrect info makes sense. I am not convinced about my need for an IR gun. To backtrack - my initial reason for posting this was to get info on fan clutches to help me do the troubleshooting. The observations I reported initially were quick & dirty and misleading. The...

    Fan Clutch Troubleshooting

    Skinny - I'm ignorant in many areas and I know it. Unlike most in that category I'm willing to ask questions and learn. However, I am not willing to go out and buy an IR thermometer for this little problem. If this thread is causing you a bunch of heartburn just ignore it. Regards Jim

    My 1984 Chevrolet Suburban K20 4x4 3/4 ton CUCV clone #2 - AKA: M1007 or M1029

    K9VIC I like the Suburban. I've never owned a Suburban but lately have developed a craving for one. I have an M1009 and have a love/hate thing with the 6.2L engine. Question: have you driven Suburbans with the 350 TBI enough to come up with an opinion on how the 350 gasser compares to the...

    Fan Clutch Troubleshooting

    scottladdy Still had some light so I ran the checks you described. The vehicle had been sitting outdoors for (4) hours since being driven. Air temp = 25°F. Started it and let it idle. Within 5 min. the crossover was noticeably warmer. The heater hoses warmed up as well. The crossover got...

    Fan Clutch Troubleshooting

    If the cable is moving the shaft then it is probably OK. I suspect there is some sort of seal on the door which is crumbling or long gone and would let air into the core. I'll check the door situation as well. May not be able to do this stuff tomorrow - have a wedding anniversary conflict...

    Fan Clutch Troubleshooting

    doghead and scottladdy If the new thermostat was installed upside down would it act as though it were wide open all the time? Regards Jim

    Fan Clutch Troubleshooting

    I appreciate this and your post #6. I will go thru the steps you mentioned ASAP. Doghead provided info on fan clutches and based on that info I now doubt that is the problem - seems like the thermostat ought to be able to compensate by staying closed to keep the coolant at 195 deg even if the...

    Fan Clutch Troubleshooting

    CUCV = non-thermal fan clutch. Therefore it will suck air when the engine is cold - just like this one does now. From what I've seen a non-thermal clutch is purely dependant on RPM and has nothing to do with temperature. Thinking out loud: --If the fan clutch failed such that the fan ran...
