Just finished mounting 395/85R20s and an electric fuel pump on the M35A3. Which left me without a reasonable way of putting the spare in the original location. But... plenty of room to hang a 2nd fuel tank. Anyone done this?
I can see taking the return line down the driver's side...
Just hooked up an electric fuel pump on an M35A3 and am looking for the right place to hook the trigger wire for the relay. I pulled the accessory switch out of the dash and saw the 4 packard connectors coming out - that's so dang tight in there, there must be a better way??
Been a bit of a slow, heavy process working through getting the M35A3 back on the road. Now that decent tires (and brakes) are on the truck, it's time to turn to the engine. Does anybody have any suggestions/thoughts/tips on what it takes/what to watch out for? I have a diesel...
Somewhere on here I came across a thread where someone mounted a noco gen2m inside their MEP-802/3. Of course the great google isn't being of much assistance on this matter.
So, before I reinvent the wheel, I thought I'd ask a couple/few questions:
Where have other seen fit to mount...
For those of us who are still struggling to find where Soldier B disappeared to...
I (along with couple buddies) was able to get a M35A3 tire mounted the other week. But man, it was no small effort to get that bead lock installed. Even with copious amounts of tire lube. Which...
I saw a thread the other day- that of course I can't now find- talking about which gears/range were best to use when using the front bucket for excavation. Something about contact/interference causing damage to (something?).
Since I'm about to embark on a big of digging, I...
M35A3 Allison 643 - has anyone done it?
I've arrived at a crossroads with my M35A3: after spending time the past few weeks, and with several quality folks throwing their shoulder behind the effort, it's turned out that the front pump I need for the Allison 1545 in my truck is apparently...
While specing some lockout hubs for the front of my M35, I ran across mention of a locking hub installed on the middle axle on an M35A2. As in, the one side of the truck, on the front of the two rear axles.
Is this a thing?
I didn't want to put the "H-word" in the title, but I could use some help:
I have an M35A3 and an M105A2 in Northern VA that I need to get moved to Southern VA. It's about 175 miles. The tenant where the truck and trailer are located is vacating and the landlord will want it gone...
I recently acquired an M35A3. The transmission went out for a rebuild because of the typical 4th/reverse scenario. All is done - with the exception of tracking down a new front pump.
Anybody have any leads on one? I've tried Defeo and Drapco so far with no luck.
Recently purchased an M35A3 - my first A3, but not my first M35. I know some of what to look for with this truck, but some of it... right now, I need to swap out the dry rotted tires. I found the stickied PDF in the TMs section discussing how to swap out tires/work on the...
Bought 3 red LEDs (from fleabay) to replace the 3 green incandescent instrument panel bulbs.
It would seem that Heman himself put those bulb covers/shades on. Last night I soaked them down with PB blaster. I haven't yet attempted to remove them again, but after referring to TM...
While looking at my 802a running the other day, I noticed 2 things: the temp gauge was non-functional (needle at 7 o'clock position) and the coolant bottle was low. Famous last words: the temp gauge "was working last time I fired it up".
I checked the radiator (full) and added a bit...
While figuring out how and where to station my MEP-802A at my house, I began wondering about the 24v alternator. How robust is it? Would it be able to charge 2x 200AH AGM batteries in 24v series reasonably? Is the alternator going to be 'kind' to the AGM battery or will it...
It's summertime (at least in this hemisphere) so that means longer days of SEE work/play time. While in the cab the other day waiting on the SEE to warm up, I discovered that activating the windshield heater instantly pops the fuse. Before I go dumpster diving on this one, I'm...
