    Recently Acquired JHGW5A - Help

    Thank you. It is a 5kw. I will service it before trying to fire it. 120V unit so it should work for most household things. Figure it will be a good backup generator. I can't seem to find any info on it.

    Recently Acquired JHGW5A - Help

    Hello, I recently was given an old military generator. It has been stored inside and other than being painted yellow, it looks to be in good shape. It was being used and kept up then one day they put it away and that was where it was left for close to 20 years. It is a 1958 with the Hercules...

    11.00x20 tire chains

    I have yet to find a deal on a larger set of singles for my truck that I can afford at the time or are close enough for me to pickup. Been thinking of getting some chains for my NDTs. Not a lot out there showing a listing for that size. What have you guys been running? Found these near by...

    M817 Emergency Fuel Shut Off Valve Rebuildable?

    The original has to be reset manually also so no big deal there. I will try the local (and only hardware store in town) and see what they have for a valve.

    M817 Emergency Fuel Shut Off Valve Rebuildable?

    I took the kids to school in my M817 and discovered the emergency fuel shut off valve has started leaking around the pivot shaft. It is the old, original style and looks like it may come apart. Does anyone know if it is rebuildable. I was hoping to avoid spending well over $200 for a brass...

    Engine Temperature Gauge Problem

    Sounds good, I will give it a shot. Well, perhaps I need to line a few more things out and take a little drive. I am just worried about a breakdown. I really don't want to flat tow it again behind my Ram, that was one sketchy tow last time...

    Engine Temperature Gauge Problem

    I am working my way through the little things which need attention on my M817. I have never been able to get a reading on the temperature gauge. I have only driven it around the block twice since getting it running. I have also let it sit and idle for 10 to 15 minutes at a time in near 100...

    Just little things now I think....

    I was thinking of going the air ride route. I found one not far from here. I may swap to a smaller steering wheel also, I'm pushing it with the one that's in there.

    Just little things now I think....

    A big thank you to everyone who helped me get my 817 on the road. I sent the original fuel pump off and had it rebuilt. It starts, runs and idles as it should. I even drove it around the block today! I have several little things to start tackling now, most of which I have identified and...
