    I have filed 3 small claims suits in my entire life and all 3 have been against GP. 2 of them were for not sending me the SF97 within the promised 60 business day time frame. The most resent(see picture) they offered me $500 to settle out of court and I accepted because I received the SF97 4...

    Mk23 power steering filter help

    Went to change the power steering filter and I think it's missing something. I think there should be a washer or something holding the filter down. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    MTVR CTIS problem

    I've been trying to diagnose a non op CTIS system. I used the DANA software on my laptop and plugged into the computer. The software says that the pressure switch is "open" even when the tank pressure is full. I pulled the switch and bench tested it and its working. I put a jumper wire where the...

    Damanged planetary hub on MTVR

    I pulled off the hub to replace a bad seal and found this. The best I can tell is the the a planetary gear got hot and seized which spun its axle. The reason I think that is because there were no large debris. I guess a large chunk could have gotten ground up into fine particles or it drained...

    Video of mounting and unmounting a 16.00 on a 2 piece wheel.

    I made a video showing a couple tricks to mounting a Michelin ZXL on a wheel with a bead lock. The hi lift jack and ratchet strap to the rafters is the best method I've found. Sorry for the poor quality video. I'm not the best with a camera Here is a...

    M931A2 trailer brake air problem

    Picked up a M322 trailer and hooked up the glad hands with the truck not running. The primary and secondary air gauges showed 110 psi but very little air flow was coming out of the emergency glad hand. Started the truck and then had a lot of flow. The trailer air system has a few very small...

    8.3 compression test

    I searched and didn't see a lot of info about this so I will share what I know. While I had my injectors out I adjusted the valves and checked compression. I was going to use a old hollowed out injector but I bought the proper gauge set. Cold engine, batteries fully charged, all the injectors...

    M931A2 air in fuel

    Went off-roading a few months ago and on an extreme angle I think sucked some air. The truck never died but sputtered for a while. The rest of the day it would intermittently sputter again on angles. Drove it home with a slight lack of power due to the sputter. Came home, change the secondary...

    Alternative tire for the M989 and M747 trailer?

    Has anyone found a good alternative wheel and tire for these trailers? They use a 15.00 X 19.5 tire which is about 40" in diameter that are no longer available. It looks like a 19.5" dually setup might work. BTW this if for the M989 trailer, NOT the M989A1

    5 ton turn signal switch

    I broke the turn signal handle on my steering column. Looked on the auction site and there are a few variants. Will any of them work on an A2? I'm shocked with how expensive they are.

    Using contaminated diesel?

    I recently found bacteria in the fuel of my skidsteer. I went and got some biocide but wonder if it's worth draining the 20gal out of the tank and replacing it with fresh fuel. Does it hurt to run contaminated but treated diesel? Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    8.3 injector cleaning or replacement

    I went on a 400mile round trip this weekend to Pismo Beach, CA. The truck ran awesome and did great in the sand, M931a2 with a M105 trailer. At idle there is a grey haze and the EGT's are really high at 1000 degrees just cruising 55mph on a flat freeway. I want to try to clean my injectors but...
